Rambling for Pudsey at HOHS

We promised some more pictures of last Friday’s sponsored ramble through our Autumnal woods and gardens. All the Prep children took part and enjoyed being together outside…we love that our school nurtures co-operatoin between different year groups, the older children always keen to encourage the younger ones.

Fundraising for Pudsey at HOHS

We had a great time today with our Children in Need activities including collecting pennies for Pudsey, taking a leisurely ramble through our beautiful grounds in the bright Autumn sunshine, a “Runsie” (fun run wearing a onesie) and scavenger hunts! Looks like we have raised over £300 in total: we’ll be able to confirm this on Monday, and let you know which house won the donations competition, too.  More pictures of today’s ramble will be on the blog next week… WELL DONE, everyone!

Scavenging for Children in Need this week!

With Children in Need this Friday, activities are underway at HOHS! Mia and Maisy (Year 12) have been running scavenger hunts since yesterday, with pupils encouraged to find the 15 spotty images they have placed around the grounds and gardens. Here are some of the Prep children having fun locating them all!

Roald Dahl inspires Year 5!

Over the half term break, Year 5 were set some explorer homework; the challenge was to produce a piece of work based on Roald Dahl. The pupils were very inventive, creating power points, oompa lumpa masks, BFG’s dream jars and even George’s marvellous medicine!

Micro:Bit power for Year 6!

Year 6’s first computing lesson of the year was very exciting! We investigated the power of the BBC micro:bit – a simple credit card-sized computer that can be connected to a PC, laptop or tablet via a USB cable. We visited www.microbit.co.uk and followed a YouTube tutorial to discover that we could display our name on a scrolling L.E.D. display. It only took three lines of MicroPython code to do so and Mr Peace is letting us take the micro:bit home over the weekend to see what else it can do! Happy coding!
