Stars of the week /

Good afternoon and welcome to the end of another week of fantastic learning at HCPS!

 

This week has seen our Year 5s begin their bikeability training. I have been so impressed with their resilience, particularly putting up with the wet and windy weather conditions – I hope it improves for next week!

In FS pupils have been making comic strips using ‘Super Daisy’, while Y1 have been storyboarding their 3 little Pigs narratives. thanks you to all the parents who attending the Y1 phonics meetings last week.

In Y2 our children have had the smelly task of finding out about Mr Stink – and deciding what would happen if he had a lottery win. I have been so impressed with the engagement and quality of writing this term!

In Y3/4 this week, our pupils have had their last visit to the Apple store, where they have been busy learning about how to use IMovie to make their Batman films, while in Y5 I have been really impressed with problem solving using fraction and time in maths.

In Y6, final preparations are underway for our annual residential visit to Thornbridge activity centre. I am sure we will bring back a group of muddy, tired, enthusiastic children.

 

Stars have been chosen this week for their fantastic writing skills, excellent manners, being a role model for their peers and for showing resilience. Well done to all!

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 🙂
