HOHS at the Royal Norfolk Show!

Despite heavy rain causing a bit of a mishap with our marquee the day before, we had a great two days at the Royal Norfolk Show this week and it was a delight to see so many current and past pupils and some former staff members, as well as chat to families interested in our school.

We were so proud of our pupils who won art and writing prizes at the Show and would like to thank Mr Crump and some of the parents who attended the presentations for these pictures, as well as the ones of the children enjoying themselves at the Show.

Our ‘free verse poets’ in Year 5

Since half term, the Year 5 class have learnt about the free verse poems by Michael Rosen and Roger McGough. We created our own ‘working wall’ to feature the different poems each member of the class looked at.

Some of the children are now writing free verse poems for their entry into the Royal Norfolk Show poetry competition!
