A reminder that here at HPS we’re celebrating World Book Day on FRIDAY.
The children are invited to dress up as a character from a book of their year group author;
EYFS – Julia Donaldson
Y1 – Road Dahl
Y3 – Marcia Williams
Y4 – Laurence Anholt
Y5 and Y6 – William Shakespeare
That’s Friday (not Thursday!) – World Book Day @ HPS.
We have been invited by the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Education to take part in their Initial Teacher Education. This means HPS will be helping to shape the teachers of the future!
The trainee teachers will be in HPS for one week starting on the 18th March, and then returning in the summer for a second placement.
It also means that while they’re here the children will have more adults in the room during the day and have opportunities for more one to one learning.
Those of you who use our online payment system SIMS Agora will notice that from today it’s had a rebrand. It’s now known as SIMS Pay.
You still sign in with the same details as before, but the website will look a little different, and now has a new address: sims-pay.co.uk
Congratulations to our first Top Chef nominees -they were nominated by our Midday Supervisors for showing the HPS values at lunchtime. Each week 7 new children – one from each Year group – will be nominated by the Midday Supervisors to cook with Mrs Griffiths our Catering Manager each Tuesday afternoon.
Our winners baked and took some great brown soda bread – plus the recipe – home with them.
Who will be nominated next week?
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.
