Canaries adventure for Samaara!

Great to hear from Samaara (Year 1) and her family, who have been visiting Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.  As you can see, Samaara did a lot while there; seeing the volcanoes, up close with dolphins, camel ride and parasailing!

Farewell to Michael Reeves

After 28 years looking after our school (and cooking for us for many of them, too!),  Michael Reeves is leaving us in June to pursue a life of leisure in his native, beloved Ireland. Many parents, past pupils and friends of the school will know Mr Reeves as a lynchpin of school life at HOHS, an extraordinarily resourceful, practical and helpful ‘Mr Fixit’. Over his tenure here he has also ably managed all of our commercial lettings, for organisations who hire our wonderful swimming pool, sports hall and other facilities when not in school use.

If you would like to show appreciation for Mr Reeves’ hard work and dedication, please send or bring donations to school Reception before 25th May (end of half term). Mr Reeves’ last day in school will be Friday 8th June.

No after-school fun swim today

Parents, unfortunately there will be no swimming for Years 3-6 after school today as Mrs McEvoy is unwell.  Children are, of course, very welcome to stay and join in the other fun activities organised by our after-school co-ordinator, or you may collect them earlier if you prefer.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Worms in the Nursery (the good kind!)

Our topic in the Nursery this term is Mini Beasts. Last week the children got hands-on with earthworms and built their own wormery. It was a lot of fun and they learned plenty of fascinating worm facts, too!

Little monkeys in the Nursery!

As part of our jungle topic, the Nursery children have been looking at monkeys this week. We have moved like monkeys, danced like monkeys and every child has painted a monkey to hang around the classroom!

Everyone has made their own monkey to hang around the classroom

Some monkeys like to hang upside down!

Dancing like monkeys!

Busy Nursery days!

Everyone has been quickly getting back into the swing of school in our Nursery classes this week, and on Thursday the roving camera spotted children doing all kinds of
interesting things…identifying animals, role-playing, sponge painting, cutting-out-and-sticking and playing imaginative games together.
