Joyeuses Pâques from Year 2

Year 2 had a very creative French lesson with Mrs Evers-Jones in the last week of term, colouring and cutting out pretty little Easter baskets and learning the names of many colours and Easter-related words.

Pancake-tossing in Year 2!

Yesterday was Shrove Tuesday, or pancake day, so no prizes for guessing what was on the lunch menu! And in Year 2, there was a bit of fun to end the day…
The children learned all about the old tradition of pancake races (originating in Olney, Buckinghamshire) where you have to flip the pancake in a pan and decided to have a go themselves! They discovered it is harder than it looks, but some people were VERY good at it!

Costumes at the ready..

It’s that time of year for digging through the dressing-up box and taking an extra hour in the morning to get our children ready for school! Yes, World Book Day is tomorrow  (Thursday 2nd March) and we are looking forward to seeing our Prep pupils dressed as characters from their favourite books.  We also have a Where’s Wally? hunt and a visit on Friday from Ketts Books in Wymondham. The pictures below will bring back memories – look out for new ones on the blog tomorrow evening and over the weekend!

At HOHS you’re never too young for hockey!

We had a great half term of hockey for all ages as you may have read in Miss Mickleburgh’s hockey report. Here are Year 2 in full kit having a lesson towards the end of term in the sports hall, and getting ready to go to an away fixture. They have really enjoyed their hockey lessons, learning dribbling, passing, tackling and shooting skills as well as playing games and learning the rules. Well done, everyone!
