Inspire+ Mini Olympics 2019 - The Greatest Show!
The Year 2s had an amazing time at the Mini Olympics! We were chosen to represent Zimbabwe and all helped to create a banner and torch! We took part in lots of different sports and activities and it's made us very excited for sports week!
The Year 2 Infant Festival at Lincoln Cathedral
It's almost the end of the academic year and it's an extra special time for the Year 2 children as not only will they be moving to a new class, they will also be moving to a new school! To celebrate this special time and to think more about this transition, the Year 2 children attended the Infant Festival at Lincoln Cathedral! We got to take part in lots of different activities such as a special tour of the cathedral where we learned about Saint Hugh and the history behind it all, singing where we sang hymns and learned about how some instruments work and construction where we built the structure of the cathedral using giant building blocks!
Science Week 2019
Here at Harrowby, we’re just mad about Science! Over the half term break, we challenged you to create a Science project to share with everyone during Science Week! We've also been very busy carrying out lots of different investigations and experiments... Take a look and see!
We walked to the library this morning and learned about how it all works! We got to listen to a story and lots of us even have our own library cards now and have borrowed a book to read at home!
Apollo the Dog!
Today, we had a very special visitor from the Blue Cross animal charity... Apollo the dog! He's 3 years old and a golden retriever! We learned all about how to care for dogs properly and even got to stroke Apollo.
Happy Easter and Welcome Back!
We hope you enjoyed the Easter break and had some well deserved rest! Well done for creating such wonderful Easter themed projects - they all look amazing!
What a lovely first day back we have had! We have some special little visitors at the moment - they're very small and fluffy and they hatch from eggs... Can you guess what they are?! Yes that's right... CHICKS!!! We're so excited to see all of the eggs hatch and to watch them grow.
We've also been busy this afternoon baking Easter nest cakes - they were delicious!!!
World Book Day 2019!
Happy World Book Day everyone! We all dressed up in our favourite book characters today and even got to walk the red carpet to show our costumes off! Every class had a different author to focus on today and the Hedgehog's looked at Julia Donaldson! We learned a little bit about her life and looked at some of her most popular books before creating a brand new character for her!!! This was a whole school competition and everyone did an amazing job so a huge well done to the winners! We also shared stories with other classes and made our very own bookmarks! A fun filled day and hopefully an inspiring one too!
Road Safety Training!
We have been on a little walk around the local area this morning as we have been learning all about road safety!
Home Learning Projects!
We set you the challenge of creating something (anything really) based around our recent visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and you certainly delivered!!! You've worked so hard on your projects and they look great! Take a look and see for yourselves! Well done and thank you parents for all of your continued help and support!
Yorkshire Wildlife Park!
Last term was yet another busy term and what a great ending to it we had! To launch our new topic 'Planet Earth', we went on a whole school trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and saw lots of amazing animals! Which animals can you spot in the photos below?
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Wow! What a wonderful but very busy term it's been! We've had so much festive fun over the past couple of weeks! We put on an amazing performance of Ned's Christmas Discovery for all of the parents - thank you so much to everyone that came to support us! We've been busy baking and decorating gingerbread men - they were delicious! We were also very lucky as Grantham College invited us to go and watch their special Christmas panto! It was very funny and we all got stuck into it! The last day of term was party day and we definitely did that! We played games like pass the parcel, musical bumps and musical Christmas statues! We also had a party food for lunch with the rest of the school! The afternoon was extra special as Santa came to see us!!! And those are just some of our highlights! Half term has come at the perfect time as we are all in need of some rest now... Have a very merry Christmas everyone and a happy new year - keep safe, keep warm and eat lots! :)
Christmas Fair Day!
We loved wearing our Christmas themed fancy dress costumes today - it was so much fun! Congratulations to the winners of the fancy dress competition and thank you to everyone that came to the Christmas fair! There's so much more to come over the next couple of weeks so it's going to be a fun and busy one! Watch this space...
It’s almost that that time of year again and we’ve been busy little elves this week making special treats ready to sell at the Christmas fair which will take place after school on Friday 7th December. Not only will you be able to buy these fabulously festive gifts (and a little something extra which we’re keeping TOP SECRET) but there will also be plenty of other exciting things happening too! We hope to see you there!!!
Children in Need Week 2018!

What a fantastic day we've had dressing up as our favourite superheroes and doing lots of fun superhero themed activities! It's been a fantastic way to end our 'Incredible Me!' topic and a fantastic way to end the first term! Have a lovely half term break everybody... Get lots of rest, have fun and be safe! See you all soon!

The Hedgehogs are very excited to be back at school after a long summer break! We are looking forward to a happy and busy year!
Also, P.E for the Hedgehogs is on Wednesdays and Fridays so please ensure your child has the correct kit at school.
