Our Spelling Bee starts at 2pm this afternoon and our children have been revising like crazy!
If parents/carers are coming to watch, you’ll need to get to the office around 1.45ish to sign in before the event.
We don’t want you to miss the start!
Our new playground structures are coming along nicely!
The willow tunnel on the playground is not ready for use yet, and is already in danger of being damaged before we’ve even finished! Please try and keep children from playing on/in the tunnel before and after school until we’re entirely finished. It’s still a little delicate!
A reminder that tomorrow is our wear something orange day in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance, the charity that Y4 are supporting. Wear something orange and bring a pound for MAGPAS!
Our kitchen staff have been hard at work making hundreds of orange helicopter biscuits too! These will be on sale in the snack shack tomorrow (20p) and after school. Yum!
Our new school dinners menu starts after the half term break.
View and download a copy of the menu on our School Dinners page.
Just a reminder that there are no clubs tomorrow (Thursday) – this is KS1 Football, Gym and the Stay and Create club.
HPS will be taking part in Fairtrade Fortnight from Monday 25th February to 8th March 2019. We will be investigating where Fairtrade goods are grown around the world and how they are processed. We will look at why supporting Fairtrade is important to the grower and how it benefits their way of life.
We will be learning about cocoa, and the process of how chocolate is made, and the children will cook a range of yummy foods using Fairtrade chocolate.

Magpas Air Ambulance is a charity which brings essential lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies in the East of England and beyond. Magpas Air Ambulance is NOT state-funded and relies on donations to continue saving lives and fly their helicopter.
HPS will be raising money for Magpas with a special Magpas Day on Friday the 15th of February. Bring in a £1 donation on the day and wear something orange to celebrate Magpas!
The money raised will be split equally between Magpas and our children’s school fund.
We’ve been thinking a lot in H.P.S. about the amount of single use plastics that we use and dispose of in our school.
Our children have been taking on the job of improving things.
Due to a late clarification by the Local Authority – HPS, along with most other local schools, has had to slightly alter our 2019-20 term dates.
The new dates can be seen on our Term dates page, where you can download a handy PDF calendar:
