Platinum Jubilee Fun at HCPS .

We all dressed in red white and blue on Jubilee day at the end of Summer 1! Firstly, all of the children in school were presented with a special commemorative Platinum Jubilee mug after an Assembly given by Rev Tina Stevens. The mugs had kindly been donated by the Churches in and around Hornsea. We all sang the National Anthem too.

Then we made our own decorated crowns to wear during the day and other activities about the Queen and her family.  We played games outside and also contributed to an enormous paper chain of hope made by the whole school. The best bit though by far was the Jubilee picnic and the lovely buns made by our school cooks. Happy Platinum Jubilee !

British Values Day 23.02.18

   On Friday 23rd February we held a special "British Values Day " where we had another look at the list of British Values; Democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

   We were able to think about what they mean to us in school and teachers chose different activities throughout the day such as artwork , discussions, role play to help us.  As part of the day the children were also asked to design their own British Values "Mood Monster" showing each value as a "character," to make them easier to remember, particularly for younger children. Winning "monsters" to be judged by Mrs Whitehead... "Watch this "monster" space!!...

Summer 2 British Values 

The theme of the Hull City of Culture was a popular choice for a whole school arts week.

During the project the children worked co-operatively in mixed age groups on different themes organised by teachers. Some of the themes included; the Land of Green Ginger, The Hull Daily Mail, Humber Street Market, Hull's Whaling industry, and an excellent dance and Drama piece based on the Lost Trawlermen. Artwork included a multimedia collage based on East Park, Amy Johnson's Moth sculptures, Papier mache  Spencer Tunic 'blue people'and even a baked interpretation of The Land Of Green Ginger.

The children all enjoyed working with children of different ages They have gained some new art skills,have increased their cultural knowledge and overall they have gained a greater knowledge and sense of pride in the City of Hull and the local area.

                                    Spring Term 2017

British Values Day 17th March. 

 Teachers were invited to choose to explore any aspect of the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; to illustrate them in different ways and for the children to learn about each value. For example; Children in Year 4 drew their ideas about "respect" in chalk on the playground. EYFS acted out the story of "The Lion and the Mouse" during PE to learn about kindness, tolerance of others and mutual respect.
