Welcome back! /

Good afternoon and a warm welcome back to staff, pupils and parents.

Our teachers have been busy over the planning some fantastic topics for the new term and I know that everyone is excited to start the new term. Over the next week, we will be setting up the school council, appointing new ‘Head Boys and Girls’ for each house and setting up after-school clubs for the new term.

Our very first stars of the week have been selected in assembly today and have been selected for their resilience, effort, collaborative skills and for settling into a new class quickly. Well done to all – you are a great example to the rest of your class already!


Over the next few weeks, we have a range of visits planned and the eagerly awaited visit to Thornbridge for the Y6 residential. I know the Y6 teachers are already excited to give parents a week off. I am sure they will bring back slight more confident, resilient (and muddy) children!

I would like to thank all pupils and parents for how quickly the children have settled into their new classes. As always, if there are any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Happy Friday!


Mr F 🙂

Friday celebrations! /


Good afternoon and thank you to all for another fantastic week of learning at Hoyland Common Primary.

I have been really impressed with our storytellers in FS week – I love how the FS2 classes have used ‘Talk for Writing’ to retell the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’. We have also had some fantastic writers in Y1, who have made some super descriptions of the Iron Man.

Both Key Stage One and Foundation Stage have enjoyed the challenge of keeping up with ‘Freddie Fit’ this week – I can’t remember the last time I saw so many red faces!

In Y3/4, I have been so impressed with pupils’ understanding of the Great War poets – I am looking forward to some powerful performances in the upcoming Easter production.

I have been inundated this week  with Y5/6 pupils who have blown me away with their descriptive eye witness acoounts of the Titanic’s sinking!


I hope everyone is looking forward to nexs Friday’s events for Comic Relief – thank you to the School Council for coordinating this year’s fundraising! We are also looking forward to having ‘Google’ come in to our classrooms next Friday, where children will get the opportunity to explore the very latest in virtual reality.

A huge well done to all our stars once again. This week, they have been selected for their descriptive writing; excellent effort and attitude; fantastic work in school and at home; and for helping others. Congratulations!


Kind regards,


Mr F 🙂

Good afternoon and welcome to the final Friday of this half term.

I have been so impressed with the exciting activities I have seen in class this week. In Foundation Stage this week, we have been hot on the heels of the gingerbread man. A huge thank you to parents for contributing too.

Y1 are now well into the building of their human bodies – Dr Frankenstein would be proud! Our Y2s have enjoyed helping Mr T with his job as a tour guide in Egypt, while Y3/4 have now completed, and are ready to test, their Anderson shelters.

I have been so impressed with y5/6’s formal persuasive letters this week – the Titantics’s company, White Star Line, will need to be ready to deal with some serious complaints!

Stars have been chosen this week for their effort in writing, fantastic design skills and for effort in maths – a huge well done to all!
Finally, I would like to say thank you to staff, parents and pupils for another successful half term at Hoyland Common Primary. Have a safe, restful and I look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready for a new half term!

Happy holidays!

Good afternoon and happy Friday,


It is a pleasure to report on another fantastic week of learning at Hoyland Common Primary. The week began with our Y5 visit to the Titanic museum in Liverpool, where pupils enjoyed workshops and got up ‘close and personal’ with artefacts, reports and illustrations of Titanic memorabilia. They really did work as historians to uncover clues to the sinking of the most infamous nautical voyage of recent times.


I have to say that the DT ‘let’s build days’ have been a huge success right through school this week.   In FS, it has been great to see our pupils creating bridges from different materials in order to save the ‘Three Billy Goats’, whilst Y1 have been busy creating different joints for their human body creations. Y2 have been asked to Help Mr T by designing and producing a health packed lunch for his travels. Whilst in KS2, our Y3/4 pupils have worked as builders to design and construct Anderson shelters, which will be bomb tested next week! Our Y5/6 designers have been tasked with saving the Titanic and have drawn up plans and constructed their own electronic propellers and designed hulls to withstand the impact of icebergs. It really has been fun to speak to children about how they are challenging themselves to solve problems this week – definitely ‘head-hurt’ learning.


Our stars have been chosen this week for effort, focus, perseverance and excellent design skills and fantastic writing – well done to all – you deserve your moment in the limelight. I would like to end by saying a huge thanks to parents, staff and pupils for such a fun-filled, hardworking term. I hope you are all looking forward to a well deserved break at the end of next week.


Happy Friday,


Mr F 😉
