We have been thinking about our ‘Diverse planet’ this week in STEM week. Linking Science and English together, we have been researching and writing fact files on the famous female scientist, Dorothy Hodgkins who received the Nobel peace prize for Chemistry when she discovered Penicillin and B12. We have also had a lot of fun in the Science shed and have thought about the conditions we need for plants to grow. We got our hands dirty this week planting Nasturtium seeds and this has been one of our favourite activities – We can’t wait to see them grow!
Next Thursday (the 18th) HPS will be holding a Farmer’s Market in the Purple Main Hall/Courtyard areas.
We will have handicrafts, fruit, vegetables and prepared food for sale – all lovingly created and grown by the children of HPS!
We look forward to seeing you there, and the children are keen to know what you think of their farmers produce. In some cases, it’s been a whole year of work growing the produce!
On the morning of the Thursday 18th July, we would like you to bring your Foundation Stage/KS1 child to their classroom as usual. Please go back around the front of the school and through the KS2 playground area to wait for our Market to open.
Due to space restrictions, your child will come into the Purple Hall/Courtyard area at the following time:
Foundation Stage, Year One, Year Two
9.15 a.m. – 10.30 a.m.
In the afternoon, the KS2 children will be ready for their Farmer’s Market at the following time. Please walk through the KS2 playground area to wait for the KS2 Market to open.
KS2 classes – Years Three, Four, Five and Six

We have been busy preparing our allotment ready to harvest our crops in the summer!
Year 3 have taken their vegetable growing to new levels today! Some children had to use their teamwork and resilience to build some ‘grow houses’. It took some working out! But they were very pleased with the final result as you can see.
