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.
Autumn Term 2019 KS2 House Event – Countdown
Well done to all of the house representatives who took part in our Countdown competition. All of Key Stage Two gathered in the hall for the tense occasion and the House Representatives, chosen by the heats we had in house teams, did very well. Congratulations to Fir House who were victorious!
Spring 2 2019 – Oak House Event for Science Week
We welcomed Oak families into school to take part in a science challenge with their children. The whole school worked in house teams to attempt to build the strongest possible structure using just newspaper and masking tape. It was wonderful to see the older children supporting the younger children and the parents having fun too!
Spring 2019 – History and Art Event
We had a fantastic afternoon when our house teams got together to produce artwork for our new timeline. The timeline will be on display in the large hall and will chart our learning through our Highwoods Curriculum, from the moon landing in Year 1 to the Industrial Revolution and World War 2 in Year 6. As always, our older children were excellent mentors when working with our younger children. Thank you so much to Chestnut families who came in to help their children with their artwork. We look forward to welcoming Oak families after half term.
