Time to sparkle

On Friday we asked staff and children to wear their 'Christmas sparkles' to school and it made me think how people manage to bring a bit of 'sparkle' to HPS every day and I want to thank the staff team for being able to add that bit of magic even when it's tough.

Christmas in a primary school is a very special time of year and always produces moments that are totally wonderful, The BIG little Nativity and The Willows performance of 'Any dream will do' are fantastic examples of HPS at its 'sparkliest' best. To watch children from our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes sing, dance and act with such confidence is great. The family members sitting in the audience were so proud of their children and it reminded me of how important it is for children to have the chance to perform. There is so much learning that comes from such opportunities. I absolutely loved it!

School has been filled with joy all week and I am very much looking forward to our final 4 days of fun next week. It will be party time across all year groups!
