The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Whilst tending to the grounds today, Mr Young came across this rather large caterpillar. It is an elephant hawk-moth caterpillar which is one of the largest caterpillars found in the British Isles. The species is named after its resemblance to an elephant’s trunk. Eventually, it will turn into a beautiful elephant hawk-moth as shown below. Have a look at this fascinating video, too!

King’s Camps first week success!

The first week of activity camps at HOHS provided by kingscamps.org is just drawing to a close in the sports hall this afternoon, and has been a great success!  Manager Ryan and his team of coaches Emily, Dom, Dan and Megan have kept nearly 40 children from HOHS and other schools locally active all week with a range of exciting games, sports and active play. Safeguarding means we couldn’t take pictures while the  sessions were in progress, but Agata, Vera, Alfie and Matthias were very happy to be pictured with their coaches. Alfie’s mum told us, “It has been absolutely amazing, Alfie has really enjoyed every minute and we will definitely be signing up for the summer sessions!” Agata said, “It is really fun, we love it!”

The next sessions will be in the summer holidays,  in the weeks beginning July 30th and August 6th.  To book, go to the Hethersett Old Hall page of the Kings Camps website here.

Something fishy in Year 6…

This half term, Year 6 have been getting creative with clay in their DT lessons with Mr Johnston, learning a variety of techniques while making different kinds of pottery fish. We think the final results should be decorative enough to earn a place on a display shelf at home!
