What an exciting week Year 6 have had. We hope you managed to catch us on BBC Look North on Monday evening.

Some of the children were interviewed and they discussed the importance of staying safe online. At the end of the week Y6F also had their class assembly. They told their parents all about the work that they have done this term and shared some of their work.

With only 2 weeks left until the end of the term, we are still working hard and we have lots to look forward to including our Y6 Christmas party (14th December) and our Christmas Carol Concert (21st December).

Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Sock Day!

This year’s anti-bullying week got off to a fantastic start with our school’s involvement in Odd Sock Day , organised by the Anti-bullying Alliance.

First, the children were involved in an assembly, where their views on how they are kept safe in school and suggestions for developing this further were taken into account.

After taking some ‘creative’ photographs of the vast array of children’s socks, we talked about being unique – All Different, All Equal.

We will be entering our photographs in an Odd Socks Day Competition on Twitter – we are proud to be All different and All Equal.


St Michael’s Carol Concert

We are so proud that our choir were asked to perform at St Michael’s Memorial Service on Thursday 9th November.

The children performed very well, filling the church with their wonderful singing.

We received a lovely letter from a lady who attended the concert and wanted to share her thoughts with our parents, staff and all of our children.

“From the moment I stepped into the church and  saw ‘Harton Primary School Choir’ in my programme, my mood lifted. The children may not realise the positive impact they have on people’s lives by being lovely children, bringing joy and happiness with their singing and ultimately, being wonderful ambassadors for your school.”

We were delighted to receive such a positive letter and proud of everyone who attended the service.

Y2 Maths Parent Workshop

Each week we will be looking at a different area of maths and showing our parents what is expected in year 2.

This week we looked at place value and the fun ways of learning it take a look at our parents getting involved in problem solving with the help of base 10!



Zulu Warriors Visit Harton Primary School

Zulu Warriors visited school today and everybody got to take part in the activities.  Zulu warriors are extremely strong and also very graceful.  They shared their music and dance with children, even getting some of them to join in.

We hope you enjoy our photographs and videos.

Zulu warriors use drums and percussion to create rhythms for their dances.

We took lots of photos – the zulu warriors wear amabeshu and use fur and feathers to decorate their heads. They use goat skin and fur to decorate their arms and legs.

The Zulu Warriors enjoyed the spectators in school – they wanted us to join in with their dances.  One of our children joined the warriors – he was very good!

We loved the dances and the singing – we hope that the Zulu warriors will visit our school again.



We will be celebrating Children In Need Day on Friday 17th November

It is a non-uniform day!!!!  And we would be grateful for a £1 per child to support this charity.

We will also be involved in Anti Bullying Week from Monday 13th November until Friday 17th November.  We are asking all children to come to school on Monday 13th November wearing odd socks!

Letters for both events to follow in due course.
