Warwick University Science Fair 2018
On Tuesday 27th March, Olivia, Charlie, Evan, Oliver, Peyton, Archie and Joe competed with other Warwickshire schools in a science project competition. They all went to Warwick University to exhibit their projects where a team of judges discussed their work with them. They also got an opportunity to hear a fascinating lecture called, ”What are we made of?” and take a tour round the university campus. Everyone was super proud of Olivia when she won first place in the EYFS category. Many thanks to Dr Hartwright for making this event possible and the Ogden Trust for their sponsorship.
A guide for parents is designed to support mums, dads and carers in developing positive relationships with their children. In turn, this will help to strengthen emotional resilience and wellbeing, so children are able to bounce back from life’s various challenges.
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.
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.
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.

Second-hand School uniform wanted.
Harbury Primary School and Church are collecting non-logo school uniform to donate to Carriers of Hope, Coventry.
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!
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!
