Happy Easter NHPS

What a busy term! I am so proud of the progress the children throughout the school have made over the past few months. This term is always one of significant progress both academically and personally, and I am pleased to say that I have certainly witnessed this from many of our pupils of late.

Looking back into deepest, darkest January seems like so long ago, ending our first week with some panto fun for the children. Since then we have seen our school athletics team win three rounds to retain our county title; our Y6s visit Sponne to experience DT through planned transitions sessions; we have hosted FONHS Movie Nights for everyone; had the Young Shakespeare Company in to workshop and perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Y6; Seen our Y5&6 pupils perform on stage in Milton Keynes for the Dance Project, and also our very own production of Macbeth; we have retained our Trust Swimming Gala title in Brackley; hosted FONHS Mother’s Day sales; were visited by celebrity author, Christopher Edge on World Book Day; won the Sponne cluster netball title, and went on to finish 5th in the district overall; delivered a Y5 Islam assembly by pupils to parents; raised money for Comic Relief with a bit of dressing up fun; had the Life Space tent in to teach the children some key aspects of our health & wellbeing curriculum; partied hard at the FONHS disco; and finally Y3 got some residential adventure at Everdon woods this week – it has certainly been a jam-packed term!

In amongst all of this, the children have worked diligently in lessons, making good progress and I hope you were impressed with their efforts when you visited for parents’ evenings earlier this month. We have now completed the term with our traditional Easter services for KS1&2 and the children have shared their knowledge of the Easter story through readings and music so beautifully today.

A final reminder about the new FONHS Challenge 2024 fundraising activity. This optional event is designed to engage the children in something fun and entrepreneurial over the Easter period – it may also be a great way to keep them occupied during the holiday! I am looking forward to hearing all about the creative ideas that they come up with, and all who take on the challenge will be celebrated in assemblies in the summer term.

All it leaves me to say is to wish you all a wonderful Easter break. I have reminded the children all about some of the key assembly messages this term including responsibility, manners, patience and kindness and I am sure they are going to demonstrate these to you in spades over the course of the fortnight at home.

Happy Easter to all the Hawksmoor family!
