A Day in the Life of Harbury School – film

World Kindness Day, Anti-bullying Week and Children in Need
The whole school took part in a paired reading and art activity to celebrate World Kindness Day, Anti-bullying Week and Children in Need.  Here are children, from across the whole school, working together to create a whole school display of Hands for Kindness before having some time to read together.

Operation Christmas Child
Harbury School is once again running our successful shoebox charity campaign, it would be wonderful if we could get as many filled shoeboxes ready to be sent before Christmas.

Leaflets can be down loaded from the official website. Leaflets will also be available in the school office and boxes can be left in the school entrance Hall.

The deadline is November 20th so we haven’t long to fill our boxes with joy and make a difference.

Year 2/3/4 NSPCC Disco-dance-athon!
On Friday the hall was full of glow sticks as the year 2/3/4 children danced their socks off to raise money for NSPCC. Thank you for sponsoring them – they were brilliant!

Year 3/4 WOW day
Oh my goodness! Year 3 and 4 really impressed us with their fabulous costumes on Thursday morning! After a catwalk in the hall they went into groups to make clay jewellery and weave cloth. In the afternoon we created freeze frames based on the book “Stone Age Bone Age” and had a hunter and gatherers picnic.

Replacement Perimeter Fencing Works
The Council have started work on the Park Lane section of the school fence. There will be no access through Park Lane entrance for the rest of this week. The main school entrance is open for access.

Apologies for any inconvenience this will cause.

Earthworms
Earthworm groups have been hard at work in our school grounds now that Autumn has struck! The Reception children had a wonderful time digging up the old weeds, raking up the leaves and finding many different minibeasts too.

 

Dear Parents,
It’s the last day of term and we just wanted to share with you, the amazing success that we have all worked so hard to achieve recently.

In the last month, we have raised a total of £5,000 for Harbury Primary School. We are absolutely over the moon and you should be too. We really couldn’t do it without all the help and support from parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, local businesses and the wider community. THANK YOU!

Have a wonderful Summer and we will see you in September.

Lego WeDo
On Wednesdays, our class, Year 5 have been working with Lego WeDo in the computer suite. We have been building models and programming them to bring them to life. In this video you can see how two groups worked together to build a footballer and a goalie. As you can see, we had a ball!

Earthworms
Each Friday, under the direction of Mrs Crowder and with the help of members of staff, different groups of children stay behind after school to do a little gardening. They sew seeds, plant seedlings, weed and tidy to keep our school gardens and planting areas looking great. The fantastic, spacious, new greenhouse is being put to great use!
