The children of Rockingham have designed their own trophy which celebrates their house and it’s local importance.


It is a chalice being held by the hands of the miners who dug the coal in the former colliery.

Can you see the pieces of coal inside?  

Tomorrow when it is dry and finished we will post a completed photograph.

This week the children are working with children from the same house as themselves. So years 1-6 will get the opportunity to meet other children who are in Rockingham, Wentworth, Strafford or Fitzwilliam.

The children are using the work of Barnaby Barford as a stimulus for their first task.


We will be posting updates as the children design their ideas on paper before creating the final piece in clay.

A fantastic afternoon at the Lamproom! /

    • Comments Off on A fantastic afternoon at the Lamproom!

Wow!  Yesterday afternoon saw the culmination of nine months hard work  by 31 children from HCPS. Our production of Macbeth was a remarkable achievement performed by some very talented actors from Y5/6.  An almost full (7 empty seats) Lamproom was enthralled for an hour by the performances of our amazing children.  They received lots of praise and compliments from parents, theatre staff and the general public. One particular lady commented how she had never seen anything like this before and couldn’t believe primary school children could perform to such a high standard.  

Please look at a few photographs taken during the technical rehearsal during the morning.

If you see any members of the cast please congratulate them on a fantastic achievement and a great afternoon’s entertainment!
