At HCPS children are put into House groups from when they enter Foundation Stage. Throughout the year, we have many house events where our houses come together from all ages. We have 2 house captains from Year 6 for each house. Our house teams are named after trees found at Highwoods Country Park: Ash, Fir, Chestnut and Oak.
Stone Art House Event – July 2018
A big thank you to all of the Ash families who attended our last family House Event of the year and a big thank you to all of the children and families from across the whole school who provided stones to make this event a success. We had a great time and the stones look great. Look out for them in the Autumn Term – will you find yours?
Games House Event – May 2018
In May we had a games house event when children got together in their house teams to play board games and other traditional games. We welcomed the families of Fir children who enjoyed playing games with their children in school. As always, there was a great atmosphere and our older children supported our younger children incredibly well in playing the games. We look forward to our next house event when we will be inviting the families of Ash children into school.
Inter-House Competition April 2018
Tensions were high when representatives from each house competed against each other in a Boggle competition. Our next inter-house competition will be organised by the House Captions and will be a quiz, to be held after half term.
Autumn 2 House Event – Winter Art
On Wednesday 29th November 2017, our four houses got together in their bases to produce some amazing winter art work. As usual, our older children supported the younger children. Chestnut House were particularly lucky to have mums, dads and grandparents come along to join in.
