Red noses almost sold out…

Parents, please note that we have limited supplies of the red noses left to sell tomorrow and Friday – so if your child doesn’t already have one, or wants another, please ensure they come to buy theirs promptly at break time! We’ll announce how much we have raised after Friday, which is Red Nose Day itself – remember, it is a non uniform day so please wear something red!

British Science Week Demo Day at HOHS

As part of British Science Week, Nursery to Year 7 pupils took turns this afternoon to get a close look at a variety of exciting experiments relating to ‘change’,  demonstrated by our Head of Science Victoria Mann.  From King Kong hands to pressure changes, vacuum suction to methane bubbles, plasma ball, powdered flames and more, the children enjoyed the chance to see science in action in our senior school labs.

Yesterday and today in the mornings, Year 1 pupils took on the role of demonstrators for a range of hands-on activities enjoyed by all the year groups in our Lower and Upper Prep Departments. From a sniff test to a shadow puppet theatre, sound vibrations to a wormery,  and  a ‘feely bag’ to  taste-bud tests, this was a great way to explore the science of our senses. The children were totally engaged and learned so much about how our senses work. Thank you to Mrs Bird and Year 1 for all their hard work! A  full gallery of images and more information is coming soon on the blog.
