Sports Update: Summer Term

Sports-icon

Welcome back, everyone, from the PE Department – an exciting term awaits us! Now we have the daylight on our side, we commence a term of athletics, cricket and rounders.
We have plenty of rounders fixtures in place for our teams, starting with the U16 team next Wednesday vs Sprowston at home. The picture below is from last summer.

We will be developing our ability to run, jump and throw in preparation for Sports Day which will be on Thursday 21st June. This is a whole school event and something we all look forward to. Sports Day support from parents and family members is greatly encouraged – so if you can come to cheer us on, please do!

We will be introducing the pupils to our new fitness suite and look forward to seeing them all in action. I am wondering whether we can row, ride, run or cycle to somewhere far away if we keep track ofour collective distances as a school?!

Mrs Woods, Head of PE

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?

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.

Years 3 and 4 inspired by Paul Klee

Last half term, Years 3 & 4 created some beautiful artwork inspired by the work of the famous artist Paul Klee. Aren’t they colourful! You can see them on display in the Prep corridors – do come and have a look when term starts again!
