Welcome to the Community News and Friends of Hornsea Primary School page. We have lots of exciting 'Community Events' showcased on our 'BLOG' and on our 'SCHOOL COUNCIL' page to show what has been happening in school this Spring.
SUMMER TERM 2017
In June the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will be coming to talk to Year 3 & 4 children about the importance of looking after the marine and beach environment. After the talk all children will be participating in a beach clean as part of their Archbishop of York Young Leader's Award.
Approximately 30 KS2 children will be meeting members of the Rotary Club to help with the design and planning of a new sensory garden for Hall Garth Park.
A team of six Year 6 children are entering the Speaker's School Council Awards as part of UK Parliament Week. This is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with Parliament. Our pupils will be explaining how children from our school are having a positive impact on the school and the local community by working together to create a positive difference.
SPRING TERM 2017
So much has happened this term in regards to Community!
The children have experienced:
AUTUMN TERM 2016
Updates from 'The Friends'.
A massive thank you to everyone who supports us in our fund raising efforts. We have purchased a 'Tanoy System' for the school, they have always had to borrow one in the past. This is to be used for public events on the school field.
Four microwave ovens have been purchased for use in class and for 'Baking Club'.
We have contributed £3000 to the regeneration of the 'Quiet Area' to make a new 'Outdoor Reading Area and extend 'The Reading Jungle'. Watch this space for updates!
Funds have been provided to buy News Stands to display the children's newspaper 'First News', children can now easily access current news.
The School Library system is now up and running with keen Librarians. The barcode scanner we bought is used everyday!
The next PTA is on the 19th of April 2016 at 7pm
TIGER TRUST - SPORTSMANSHIP ASSEMBLY
Our Community link with the 'Tiger Trust' is truly embedded in our school. Yesterday Richard Dexter a representative from 'The Tiger Trust' came to our special assembly to talk to us about sportsmanship. He talked to the children about how rules, attitudes and behaviour all contribute to how well we do in life. He talked about how 'Sportsmanship' can take place anywhere in everyday life. Then Dean Windass appeared and Mrs Wiles became over excited and squealed loudly!
Dean held an open floor session with the children, they asked him about his career, whether he had always shown good sportsmanship and if he had learnt from mistakes made along the way. He talked to them about being the very best they could be and how to achieve their goals in life!
Tuesday 9th December 2014
'Carols around the Tree'
The Friends would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who made last night such a success. We raised £500.00. The children had a fabulous time making some of the lovely gifts on sale last night. We hope you enjoyed the evening as well!
Monday 10th November
Run 2 Remember
All the children in the school will run around an area of the school during the morning. Each child will bring home a sponsorship form and proceeds will go to 'The British Legion'. A representative will be with us on the day, together with the local press.
Thank you for your support!
We welcomed Cathy Webb to our assembly today, a representative from 'Samaritan's Purse. She talked to the children about Operation Christmas child. Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child – an initiative of the Christian relief and development agency Samaritan’s Purse – has been blessing underprivileged children around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in the UK. It’s a campaign that thousands of schools, churches and other organisations from across the UK get involved with between September and November each year.
The 'Messy Church Leaders' (organised by our local church groups) are starting their club on Monday after school at 3.45 for children and their families. There will be activities, stories, time to talk and refreshments will be available. Please come along and get messy!
September 2014 is Blood Cancer Awareness month when it is hoped that as much money as possible will be raised to fund the research and clinical trials of all blood cancers. The Hull and East Riding Fundraising group of Leukaemia and Lymphoma have contacted us to support their campaign, 'Small Change, BIG Impact'.
During the week September 13th - September 21st we would like the children to bring in as many pennies as possible with a view to building a penny pyramid.
All money raised will help life-saving work improving the lives of blood cancer patients.
Thanking you in anticipation
Mrs L. Wiles
