Little workers on Open Morning!

We can’t resist sharing these pictures from last Saturday’s Open Morning….

In the first image, some of our Year 2 pupils are demonstrating their creative skills for visitors to admire, while the rest show Year 1’s little Van Goghs hard at work. The children have been studying the life and work of the famous French Impressionist and have been really enthusiastic about his colourful sunflowers!

Please share our Winter Wonderland Fair poster!

From Joy Elsley, Chair of our Parents’ Association:

Parents and friends – if you haven’t already made a note in your diaries, please do now – and tell your friends and families. If you can, please share our poster, below!

Saturday November 18th is our big Winter Wonderland Fair. There will be stalls galore (over 45 of them!) selling everything from crafts to Christmas decorations, artisan foods and handmade clothes.  You can also enjoy food and refreshments from our wonderful chef and games and activities for the children.

Interested in having a stall, or know anyone who would like one?  There are just a very few spaces left now, so please email me at PA@hohs.co.uk as soon as possible! It costs just £25 for a 6ft table (supplied) plus a donated item for our raffle.

Speaking of the raffle – parents, could you consider donating a prize? The raffle is always one of our biggest fundraisers and the proceeds all go towards buying items to benefit all our children. You can bring prizes into the school office anytime from now. Thank you so much!

Year 1 trip to Bridewell…the gallery!

Last week we reported briefly on Year 1’s fantastic trip to the Bridewell in Norwich. At this treasure trove of a museum, they explored all kinds of items from the last hundred years or so, such as mangles, shoes, games and even Christmas crackers! The main focus was on toys, though, and the children were able to look at and handle toys from the past, compare them to ones from present day and – as a link to our science topic – talk about the different materials they are made from. They sorted, drew and made a climbing man puppet each and enjoyed their lunch in the prison yard.  The children are now busy learning songs and poems about toys for their toy-themed assembly next half term on Tuesday November 7th.
