Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘Stars’ of the week, receiving special mention from Mr Peace and their teachers in our Prep Department Praise Assembly this morning, are:

Grace (Nursery) for helping others and for her friendly and kind behaviour.

Charlie (Reception) for self-improvement and for being very kind and helpful. Charlie was also Top Athlete for Reception boys at yesterday’s Sports Day!

Jessica (Year 1) for creating a lovely zig-zag book reflecting her journey across the day on our trip to Amy T’s Willow Farm last week.

Theo (Year 2)  for pushing himself in PE lessons – his effort was well rewarded on Sports Day yesterday as he was Top Athlete for Years 1 and 2 boys.

Well done to all of our ‘stars’! The photos are from another recent assembly.

Sports Day is still in progress…

…and what a day it has been! There has been plenty of fun and excitement, with some records slashed (more of this in the next day or two!) and close finishes.Lots of pictures to follow.

Parents – did you get some good photos or video of your child today that you would like to share with the wider school community? If so, please email your favourite to marketing@hohs.co.uk and we will include them in our online gallery!

Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘Stars’ of the week, receiving special mention from Mr Peace and their teachers in our Prep Department Praise Assembly this morning, are:

Oliver (Year 3) for making a wonderful Tudor house. He researched first and produced a very detailed model.

Matilda (Year 4) for amazing ICT work including completion of her Tudor project using her ICT skills. Matilda enjoys ICT and picks up new concepts quickly.

Maxim (Year 5) for excelling in maths – using his time in exams to check that his answers were correct.

Skyla-Grace (Year 6)  for being amazing at spellings! Skyla gets full marks every week and always learns the ‘bonus’ spellings.

Well done to all of our ‘stars’! The photos are from an assembly last week.

Chicks update!

Last week we reported on the clutch of baby chick eggs which had arrived in the Prep School.

The children have been fascinated to see the little chicks hatch (it takes a while to break through the eggs’ shell, and looks like hard work!). They have also observed how the chicks need a bit of time to rest and let their downy feathers dry out and fluff up before they venture out and learn how to drink from the water bowls and find their food. The pupils have taken turns to handle the chicks, too. Here are some of our Year 1 pupils – they were being very, very careful and gentle!
