School Election day

On 8th June 2017, as the UK went to the polls in the general election, HWPS held its own vote. The school association, HWSA, donated £150 and children in KS2 formed polictical parties, each based on an idea for spending the money. Following an intial selection process, four parties were chosen to go through to the election proper. They were:

The Tuck Shop Party

The Hydration Station (healthy tuck shop)

The Snack Farm Party

The Clubs Party

All the children in school, from nursery to Y6, voted in a process which was as close to the real general election process as possible. One of our parents even supplied us with some authentic ballot boxes that weren't being used elsewhere!

The final result was a landslide victory for the Clubs Party - no hung parliament here!

The Queen's Birthday

In June 2016 the whole school celebrated the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We used the book "The Queens' Knickers" as inspiration for lots of fun activities including decorating knickers! Between us, we designed a pair for every possible royal occasion - from parties to important state visits.

Some of the children from Year 6 visited a local day centre and interviewed people who were also 90 years old. They made some vidoes which they brought back to school so that we could all learn about what life was as the nonagenarians were growing up.

In the afternoon we all had a massive tea party for the whole school.
