No Pens Day 2016
On Wednesday 5 October 2016, pupils and staff at HMS will once again put down their pens and pencils for a day of no writing! Following a successful day of events last year, we have once again signed up to this special day. No Pens Day encourages schools to focus on the importance of great speaking, listening and communication. Pupils will enjoy a wide range of stimulating and engaging learning opportunities; all of which they will have to approach without the reliance on writing to communicate! Keep an eye out for photos to document the imaginative and creative lessons we come up with to enjoy the day!
Year 6: Supporting English & Maths
Welcome to a new year at HMS! We are really pleased with how our Year 6 pupils have settled into their English and maths learning. We will be sending home bulletins throughout the year which, we hope, will provide you lots of information that will help your child with their home learning; see below for an electronic copy of the first bulletins. As always, please get in touch with us with any questions you may have. We thank you for your continued support with homework; it is hugely appreciated.
Mr Watters (Head of Maths) and Mrs Roff (Head of English).
