Autumn is here!

This week we have been looking for signs of Autumn. 

We looked in our school yard to see what we could find.

 Using leaves we made leaf print pictures.

 

Harton Primary Summer Fayre

What a fantastic turnout we had on Saturday for our first Summer fayre.

Even though it was raining, it didn’t deter the hundreds of families who joined us on Saturday morning.

Some of our stalls were sold out within the first hour and our rides and games stalls were a huge success.

Our choir were outstanding and sang some crowd-pleasing songs.

Well done to all the raffle winners and a huge thank you to all the staff for giving up their Saturday morning to put on such a successful event.
I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

We are already starting to plan our Christmas Fayre!

We hope you enjoy looking at some of the photographs of a fantastic event.

Change4Life End of Year Celebration!

Today, the children who took part in the Change4Life club were invited to take part in a very special celebration to mark the end of the school year and being part of the club.

The children took part in a range of different sporting activities including : hula hooping, boxing and so much more.

 

Check out our photos to see what fun we had!

Art Workshops With Zoe Emma Scott

The whole school have participated in Art workshops with local artist Zoe Emma Scott.

Zoe inspired the children by sharing pieces of her artwork and explaining ways in which they can make their work their own.

All children were set the challenge to illustrate their idea of a happy day. The artwork the children produced throughout the school was fantastic!

After much deliberation Zoe chose some final pieces to receive an art award and one lucky person had their art work printed! The children who received the art awards are as follows:

Nursery-Darcie D

Reception-Lexie H

Year 1-Maizie R

Year 2-Lily D

Year 3-Andrew A

Year 4-Maisie S

Year 5-Daniel R

Year 6-Kaitlyn E

Playground Buddies, calling all Year 5 children!

Do you have what it takes to help children who are feeling lonely in the yard? Are you kind, thoughtful and a good listener? Could you be a Playground Buddy?

 

The School Council are currently looking for Playground Buddies to help those children who come to one of our Buddy Bus Stops in need of help. They have been busy thinking about all of the qualities that a good Buddy should have.

 

If you would like to apply, please see your School Council member for an application form.

 

Could you be a Buddy?

Excited by the delivery of our Buddy Bus Stops, School Council members met to discuss how these might best be used to help children feeling lonely in the yard. Council members explained that it will be important to have thoughtful children playing close to the bus stops if those feeling lost are to receive the help that they need. Could you be one of these helpful children, or Buddies, that the School Council are looking for?

 

Making a difference in school and out!

Members of the School Council have been busy working their magic again. Not content with making a huge difference to their local community, the children have turned their attention to how they might be able to help fellow pupils within school.

Members of the School Council explained in their recent meeting that the yard can, at times, be a lonely place for some children. It is not always easy to find someone to play with, especially when close friends are absent or are eating lunch. After a lengthy discussion of possible ways around this issue, the School Council decided upon installing a ‘Buddy Bus Stop’ in each yard. Children who are feeling lost and in need of a friend can come to one of the Bus Stops to receive the help that they need.
