Sacrewell Farm

Sacrewell Farm

We had a fantastic day in the sun at Sacrewell Farm yesterday. We enjoyed a tractor ride, a visit to the mill and a small animal experience where we go to meet a guinea pig, rabbit and even a duckling! There were also lots of goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and horses to see.

Thank you for your support which enabled the trip to go ahead.

Duxford Trip Y2

Duxford Trip Y2

Unfortunately the coach taking Year 2 had some mechanical issues on the way and had to stop. A replacement coach came to pick everyone up, but by the time that had happened there wouldn’t have been much of a day at Duxford for Year 2, so they have returned to HPS.

We will be taking Year 2 to Duxford, free of charge, as soon as we can arrange another visit. Hopefully this will happen in the next few weeks.

Apologies to Year 2!

Year one arrived as planned and are having a great day.

Chocolate Tombola

Chocolate Tombola

Before the Easter holiday, Year 2 organised and ran a chocolate tombola and raffle in order to raise money for our charity EACH (East Anglia Children Hospice). Each helps and supports both children and families when a child is poorly.

The tombola raised an amazing £300! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the event and helped support raise money for this wonderful charity!

London Trip

London Trip

With the trip to The National Gallery in London fast approaching, we wanted to clarify the final details and expectations for the days. We’re taking around 500 children with us, so there’s some organising to be done!

Year 1 and 2: Monday November 12th
Year 3: Thursday November 15th
Year 4: Tuesday November 13th
Year 5: Wednesday November 14th
Year 6: Tuesday November 20th

Children will be expected to arrive promptly at school for 7:50am to leave at 8:15am. All children must wear full school uniform on the day, including comfortable and durable school shoes. We ask that children do not bring portable electronics including mobile telephones on the trip.

Children may bring a maximum of £5 spending money which will be their responsibility for the duration of the trip and should be placed in a purse or wallet.

As we know, the weather is often unpredictable so please ensure all children have appropriate clothing e.g. rain coats. All children must bring a packed lunch, unless you have previously stated that your child is eligible for a free school meal. We strongly advise that children are packed up with an extra drink and a snack as it will be an extended day for the children.

We will be Leaving the National Gallery at 2:30pm and aim to arrive back at school for around 4:30-5:00pm.
However, these timings are dependent on traffic and so you will find timely updates on the school website and social media pages to keep you up-to-date as we approach HPS.

Many thanks,
The Huntingdon Primary School Phase Leaders

Year Five Receive a Letter!

Year Five Receive a Letter!

Year Five have been lucky enough to receive a reply from one of the companies we wrote letters to.

Histon Produce Co.Ltd thanked us for the letters we sent them and provided us with some examples of the work they are doing to have a more positive impact on our world. The examples include: Recycling cardboard boxes, using reusable containers and getting up to 50% of their produce from East Anglia to save on fuel and support our local economy.

We are looking forward to hearing back from the other companies we have written to.

Hope to make a change

Hope to make a change

Following our single-use plastic research, Year Five have been writing letters to the food produce companies who provide us with all the food the children eat during school dinners. We have given the companies lots of suggestions as to how they could change their single-plastic use ways. We hope they will take on board what we have written and try to change for the better.
