Special moments 🙂

It's that time of the week again when I get the chance to highlight some special moments from the week that has just gone.

Having spent time with AHTs submitting all our data for F2, Year 1, Year 2, and Year 6, it is very evident just how much progress children have made and how well the HPS staff team have planned and targeted support to enable all children to...

Refugee week including, 'A day for Ukraine' 

Ukraine flag heart

Last Friday it was wonderful to see the colours of Ukraine everywhere I went when I arrived at school; thank you to staff, children and families to show your support for a country that is being devastated by such a cruel and unjust war.

This was the perfect end to all the activities that had taken place for the years Refugee week.

The theme...

The Great Outdoors

The last couple of weeks have seen UKS2 classes embrace the great outdoors with trips to both Yeadon Tarn and Malham Cove and we have been so lucky that the sun has shone. As we enter trip season, I want to recognise all the hard work that goes behind making a trip a happy, quality experience for our children. From Evolve, booking coaches, arranging lunches, driving buses,...

Picking up where you left off

It has certainly been a happy start to the final half term of this school year and great to see the children straight back into learning. It has been a very busy week indeed.

📝📚Year 1 children have been taking the Phonics screening check along with Year 2 children that needed to retake it. I have been so impressed by the confident way they...

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...

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...

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...
