A little bit of magic ✨

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 🎄🔔❄️🎁 What a wonderful time we had last week, sprinkled with a little bit of magic that HPS does so well 😍✨.

We have been busy finding ways to make school feel festive and enabling our children to have fun whilst keeping them safely in their class bubbles. This week they have watched a ‘virtual’ assembly which included the lighting of the Advent crown and the Senior Leadership team decorating the Christmas tree and switching on the lights.And who would have thought that Mr Matthews our Assistant Headteacher would turn out to be a master criminal, stealing a chocolate from my calendar, disguised as an elf! 😆 I think the case of the stolen advent calendar chocolate will be remembered for a long time. I have loved reading the emails the children have sent me and talking about this with them when I have seen them outside. It has really captured their imagination.

The children have also been on a ‘Spot the Advent window’ walk around school to find the 24 windows created by different classes.

Our staff team are doing a fantastic job of embracing all the different ways they can add in festivity to our Covid world.
