"Buzzing"

The atmosphere in school on Friday was buzzing and the energy created was infectious. HPS is at its best when there are lots of things going on. 😁

In the hall Year 6 were treated to a Music Nugget fun session which saw them totally engaged. One Year 6 boy described the experience as 'fabulous". Thank you to musicians from Artforms for creating something so...

Key Stage 2 SATs 2022 - just fantastic 👏

After 3 years of disruption to their education, last week Year 6 children were expected to sit their Statutory Assessment Tests in English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, English Reading and Mathematics. Although I think this is very unfair for so many reasons, as with anything else we do, Harehills Primary put 100% into making the week as happy...

Making the most of May

We started last week with many of our staff, children and their families celebrating Eid-al-Fitr. The celebration day we had in school on Friday was such a special time for everyone.

It is always lovely to see the children come dressed in their beautiful Eid clothes. I was out at the gate as everyone arrived at school and it was like a fashion show. During the day the...

All the little extras 🙂

It has been another week crammed full of exciting experiences including the Year 5 ISL for their theme, 'Were the Greeks Groovy?' which saw a few members of staff transformed into Greek gods taking part in Aphrodite's reality show?!! 😉 I know from my conversations with Year 5 children that these inspirational starter lessons really do activate their curiosity and...

Earth Day 🌍

It was a very happy start to the Summer term and the whole school embraced Earth Day on Friday. School Councillors had visited assemblies before the Easter holidays to share their vision for the day. This included us coming to school dressed in 'earth' colours which they decided are green, blue, white, and brown.

All classes spent time sharing a presentation approved by school...

A week packed full of events 🌳🎨✍✨👏

The final week of this term has been packed full of so many things to celebrate and has been the perfect way to end such a busy term. The Art exhibition at Shine showcasing our children's artwork is wonderful, and I know staff have popped down with the children to see it. I visited with our Chair of Governors Julia Shemilt and she was full of...

Thank you to the Year 2 team for a supremely well organised week which has enabled every child to feel confident about 'having a go' - I think they have enjoyed the experience.

I have also...

The power to change lives

I know, like me, you will have been outraged and saddened by what has been happening in Ukraine over the past few weeks. It is hard to believe that in 2022 such a situation can arise. I am pleased that on Friday last week we did our bit to fund raise for the Comic relief fund. The powerful message for this year’s Red Nose Day is whatever we do, no matter how small,...

What a busy week!

After missing out in 2021, Year 6 completed 2022 KS2 Mock SATS week in style. Thank you to everyone for making this such as huge success, especially Mrs McMullen who masterminds the complex operation. 👏 I know this is another key step in making sure our children are ready for their tests in May. Having missed so much time in school over the past two years due to...

Adding the love into learning

It certainly has been a seamless start to the new half term with every year group picking up where they left off in terms of high quality and interesting learning experiences - our children are so lucky to be in classes where staff spend so much time ensuring that every child loves learning. The smell of freshly cooked pancakes wafting along the corridor outside...
