Reception assembly – the pictures!

Yesterday’s class assembly by our confident little Reception pupils was a delight, as already reported. Here, now, are some more pictures from the performance. You can also see some of their colourful artwork, including brightly painted Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired giants! Thank you once again to all the parents, grandparents and family members who came – we hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and share in some of their achievements. It is great to see their growing confidence in performing and learning lines!

Reception show us how beans grow!

What makes a little bean grow into a big, healthy plant? Our Reception pupils know – and they told us all about it in a wonderful assembly this morning. Look out for more photos and a report coming soon. Meanwhile, here is a lovely picture of the children on stage, showing how their confidence is growing, and showing off the giant paintings they had done!

Thank you to all the parents who came – we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and showcasing some of their achievements. Well done everyone!

Fairies and Elves in Reception!

There are hundreds of opportunities for creative and imaginative play at HOHS. This week we spotted some of our Reception children enjoying a recently-acquired fairy and elf house, complete with miniature furniture and little characters. Perfect for all kinds of role-play adventures! The children were also keen to show off the beans they have started to grow. They have planted them in jam jars so that they can keep an eye on how well they grow. We will have another look, too, later in the term…

Noah’s Ark floats off in Reception’s assembly!

Our Reception pupils have been learning all about things that float and sink, including the story of Noah’s Ark.  Jake and Chloe have even made their own boats at home  and in one of the pictures here you can see Chloe holding hers, made from drinks bottles and pipe cleaners covered in a waterproof plastic bag.

Yesterday, in an enchanting Noah’s Ark-themed assembly, the children told us all about what they had been learning and doing on this topic.  They all spoke very clearly and sang beautifully – well done, everyone!  A big thank you to all the parents and family members for coming to watch and for helping to provide some amazing animal costumes, too!

Reception show us how beans grow!

What makes a little bean grow into a big, healthy plant? Our Reception pupils know – they have been experimenting and discovering that the magic ingredients are light and water. The children told us all about it in a wonderful assembly this morning, with Jasper the cat’s story helping to get the message across!  As always,  the class assembly is also a lovely, family occasion, as these pictures show.

Thank you to all the parents who came – we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and showcasing some of their achievements. Well done everyone!
