Our ‘stars’ this week are…

Star-of-weekOur most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention by Mr Peace in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Edward B (Nursery Yellow) for progressing well in swimming and jumping into the pool for the first time. Edward’s teacher says he is a joy to have in the class!

Millie A (Reception), for the diary she made over the Easter holiday, with beautiful pictures, writing and photographs.

Charlie Mc (Year 1), for his great Easter holiday homework. Charlie completed every bit of the work on senses for science with lovely writing and presentation.

Sophia S (Year 2) for excellent comments and thought in science and great work on fractions in her maths lessons.

Adam S and Chloe T  (Year 4) for excellent work on poetry! Chloe made an entire booklet on limericks and Adam wrote an impressive limerick during the lesson.

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week?

Welcome Back

A very warm welcome back to school to all our day pupils, boarders, parents and staff! Mr Crump led the seniors in an assembly this morning before the girls started lessons in what will be an important exam term for many. The younger pupils, meanwhile,  have had an exciting morning learning and catching up with their friends and have just enjoyed their tasty lunch before going off to play outside. There are spring flowers around the grounds and the sun seems to be trying to shine to prove the point that this is, after all, the summer term!

Lost…large HOHS gym bag…can you help?

lost-and-found

On the last Friday of term, Sophie (Year 2) mislaid her gym bag. It was last seen in the car park and her mother wonders if another parent may accidentally have picked it up while loading their car…if you were there that afternoon please could you have a look? The bag contains a named dress and shirt, swim bag and book bag and the bag itself is also named.  If you find it, please call us on 01603 810390 or email ljones@hohs.co.uk so we can let Sophie know before the beginning of term. Thank you!

Easter bonnets!

Our Lower and Upper Prep pupils paraded with their Easter bonnets this afternoon – great fun! Thanks to all the parents who helped the children with these beautiful, imaginative creations at home – it was a visual feast and they were all winners! Happy holidays, everyone.
