Year 5 have been busy hanging bird boxes in our new forest school. Now for some birdseed!


As part of Year 5’s art unit on sculpture, we have made some maquettes based on Henry Moore’s sculptures. We drew them and then made them out of play dough (Thank you YR!). We can’t wait to make our final pieces!


🌈 We are especially proud of our Year 6 children, who have finished their SATs tests today. We couldn’t be prouder of our staff, parents and brilliant children who have applied themselves phenomenally well throughout this week. A group of superstars! 💫


Good luck to our amazing Year 6 children who have their SATs this week. You are all superstars!


Year One had a virtual visit from the National Gallery on Friday! We were taken around the gallery, with paintings and sculptures from famous artists on display.


Last week, some of our year 5 children were selected to represent our school in a ‘Quad Kids’ athletics competition. Our children represented our school so brilliantly. Well done!


Ahead of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we have planted 3 crab apple trees. These three will form part of the Queen's Green Canopy. A nationwide project to plant native trees. 👑🌳🌿


As a part of Year 5’s unit in English, the children have been innovating sentences from Louis Sachar’s There’s A Boy In The Girls’ Bathroom. We have been building our vocabulary and superb description to create some outstanding writing!


🌈 Year 5 have visited the residents of Sloane House as we have been making links with the local community. The Year 5s impressed with their fantastic reading and the residents all loved their visit.


🌈 What a fantastic first week back for our children and staff. We topped off our week with our first use of our forest school: reception and year 1 enjoyed making medallions, using our mud kitchen and playing games!

Year 2 and 6 teachers from HPAS, HPABG and HPABe met today for writing moderation. Fantastic opportunity for professional dialogue.


🌳 🪵 A HUGE thank you to our parents and staff who gave up their Saturday to come in and help construct our forest school. We can’t wait to show it to the children after a well deserved Easter break. See you soon!

It was special to be all together again at St George’s church for an amazing Easter service. With thanks to St George’s, and to Father Jeremy who also gave some of our children a tour afterwards. Thank you also to our amazing parents for coming to what was a fantastic spectacle!
