Can you design the winning leaping hare?

Don’t forget to get creative over half term with your design for our leaping leveret, part of the GoGO Hares project! Miss Coughlan has distributed templates to every pupil in Nursery and Prep and Years 7-10 and we’d like as many entries as possible…be as colourful and imaginative as you like! The closing date is Monday 19th February – the day we get back after half term – and the designs will be on display in the main entrance hall for everyone to vote for their favourite!  The winning design will be painted onto our three-foot high hare (you can sign up to help!) ready to join over 100 from other schools as part of the trail around Norwich this summer. Find out more about the GoGo Hares project here!

Rambling for Pudsey at HOHS

We promised some more pictures of last Friday’s sponsored ramble through our Autumnal woods and gardens. All the Prep children took part and enjoyed being together outside…we love that our school nurtures co-operatoin between different year groups, the older children always keen to encourage the younger ones.

Fundraising for Pudsey at HOHS

We had a great time today with our Children in Need activities including collecting pennies for Pudsey, taking a leisurely ramble through our beautiful grounds in the bright Autumn sunshine, a “Runsie” (fun run wearing a onesie) and scavenger hunts! Looks like we have raised over £300 in total: we’ll be able to confirm this on Monday, and let you know which house won the donations competition, too.  More pictures of today’s ramble will be on the blog next week… WELL DONE, everyone!

Meanwhile, here are the beginnings of our Pennies for Pudsey activity – and Lacey (Reception) with her spotty-eared headband ready to do her bit!

Scavenging for Children in Need this week!

With Children in Need this Friday, activities are underway at HOHS! Mia and Maisy (Year 12) have been running scavenger hunts since yesterday, with pupils encouraged to find the 15 spotty images they have placed around the grounds and gardens. Here are some of the Prep children having fun locating them all!

Harvest festival thanks

A huge thank you to all of you who kindly donated items for our Harvest Festival assemblies this morning…both the Barn and the Prep Hall boasted impressive displays of dried food and other items which were later packed up carefully by Sixth Form and Year 7 pupils. Rob from Norwich Food Bank collected the haul at break time, and took them back to the Norwich distribution centre to be sorted and made available to local people in need. Thanks again!
