Friday 23rd June
Following requests by KS2 children for opportunities to organise fundraising events for various charities, a special fundraising day was arranged for Friday 23rd June. As well as the fundraising for Maisie’s Challenge,(Maisie’s Marathon Challenge managed to raise over £1000 so far and the sponsor money keeps coming in!) We also raised lots of money with a non-uniform day, selling pens and wristbands, buns and cakes and a ‘Guess the name of the Teddy’ stall. A number of KS2 children have also run bun sales and a ‘Guess the number of sweets in the jar’ stall. We were really impressed with how well organised and well supported these fundraising activities have been.
EYFS 'learning how to dribble' with the Tigers Trust
Ryan and Jack from Hull City Tiger's Trust have been teaching groups in EYFS how to play lots of games and use certain skills whilst using a football.
The children have been working in pairs, teams or just by themselves to master these new techniques... 'We know how to dribble properly!!'
Tri-School Sports Day 20th June
Hornsea Community Primary School played host to two other schools on Tuesday 20th June, for a special Tri-school sports morning.
Hornsea Burton School EYFS children, joined Hornsea Nursery Children (including a group of 'very grown up' 2 year olds) and our own EYFS children for a series of 10 exiting sporting activities. All of the groups were mixed together in order to 'have a go' at each event; which included an obstacle course, football goal scoring, bean- bag throwing, parachute and running races. At half time we sat in groups for a drink and biscuits and created a huge circle at the end to sing a song. Everyone had lots of fun!
Faith in Art Day 15th May 2017
Art is one way of trying to express the inexpressible, using not words, but the language of line, colour, shape and texture. Because art often captures what words cannot, it has been a powerful medium for conveying spiritual ideas for centuries
Teachers were invited to explore “Faith in Art” by either choosing a religious work (or works) of art /sculpture, icon or symbol building of significance from any of the six main faiths; through different art related activities eg OR to create their own religious work of art to match any of the six main faiths. The children showed their finished artwork during our Assemblies
Family Learning day 1st April 2017
We all enjoyed our Family Learning Day On Saturday.
Lots of parents, grandparents, carers and children came to school to take part in different activities; such as building models, British Values, science experiments, crafts, maths and even a reading trail around school, during the morning.
Guardian Angel Week 6th -10th March
Once again it has been Guardian Angel week in school which started on Monday 6th March. Children and adults had the chance to prove that they could be a "good friend" to others by becoming a Guardian angel or helpful friend to another person for a full week.
The whole school including the kitchen, dinner and cleaning staff, all of the teachers, TA's and HLTA's and even the office staff. have participated by picking out a "name "from a hat. The rules are; the person must not know who is treating them or doing them a good turn, so it has been a fun and exciting time. There have been lots of smiles, helpful children, special cards, flowers, bubbles, homemade biscuits and poems and lots of kindness given throughout the week by all.
This year in recognition of all the kind and helpful things that our children perform for other people at home, parents and carers were invited to write and tell us about these lovely moments in order to nominate their child for a special "Kindness certificate." We received lots and lots of really heart-warming examples of VERY KIND children and so have given out many special certificates during our Assemblies. This week has put a smile on everyone's face.

Amy Johnson Festival 2016
Hornsea Community Primary School celebrated the Amy Johnson festival in Hull when they were asked to decorate or design the livery for the famous local aviator's biplane "The Gypsy Moth" Here are some of their amazing designs...
I liked the play because I think it taught us a lot about how to change your lifestyle and how to change to be healthy. It also told you how and why you need to be healthy and to spend time with your family. Rose.
