Home Schooling during Closure

3 April 2020

We hope that you and your families are continuing to stay safe in this unprecedented time. As we adapt to working and learning in this new way, we have taken feedback from a number of parents and are reviewing the home learning that is being shared via SMHW. Further information and guidance will be shared in due course.

Don't forget you can access a range of resources to help with home schooling here: https://bit.ly/2UHhK6I

We are continuing to offer care provision over the Easter holidays for children of key workers, but must stress that children should only be in school if there is no other safe alternative for them. Please email key@haygrove.somerset.sch.uk if you require your child to be in school over the coming weeks. 

Be safe and have a happy Easter holiday.

Drop Everything and Read for World Book Day

"Please sir, can I have some more?", Sam from 7CL representing Mallory house, dressed up as a very identifiable Oliver Twist and was declared the winner from all the Year 7 characters who turned up at school this morning to honour the annual book-reading event. The runners up were the Seven Dwafs, the White Rabbit and an Oompa Loompa! The Seven Dwarfs were from 7ACW representing Stephens house who were Georgia, Phoebe, Araiana, Megan, Tabitha, Poppy and Chloe. Nell from 7GH and representing Hargreaves was dressed up as the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland and Elizabeth from 7CL was representing Bonnington came to school dressed as an Oompa Loompa from Chrlie and the Chocolate Factory! 

Year 7 Haygrove students had been invited to dress up as their favourite book character to mark World Book Day which is held every year to celebrate authors, illustrations, books and (most importantly) reading.

Lots of our Year 7 students made the effort to come to school dressed as their favourite character and during the morning a short list of finalists was selected. Mrs Hodder-Williams, the school librarian, arranged an extra special assembly during which teachers read extracts from their favourite books which included Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K.Rowling (Miss Mitchell), Macbeth by William Shakespear (Mrs Stitfall), How to Train your Dragon by Cressida Cowell (Mrs Harper) and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (Mrs Hodder-Williams).

At lunchtime the students who dressed up gathered in the library, where they could buy homemade cakes, with the funds going to support Book Aid and Haygrove equipment, for the final judging. Miss Mitchell donned her sorting hat and with help from members of the English teaching staff, four winners from each house were selected and then, after much discussion and deliberation, the final top four prizes were awarded.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the students and staff who donated and purchased cakes.
