Hoxton Garden recently supported Anti-Bullying Week! Throughout the week, there were special assemblies, PSHE lessons, circle times and school council meetings centred around the topic of bullying. On the Friday of Anti-Bullying Week, children came to school wearing as much blue as possible! Each child donated a £1 and we managed to raise over £200 for the NSPCC.
Hoxton Garden recently celebrated their annual Harvest Festival. Children from Reception up to Year 6 travelled to our local Church to celebrate the successful growing of crops. Thank you to all of our families for all of the contributions of tinned and dried goods that were donated to the Hackney Foodbank and a thank you to Father Christopher for welcoming us into the Church.
At the time of the last newsletter, we were celebrating World Week. Thank you again to all of the parents who joined us to share food from around the world. Here are some photographs of some of the things that we got up to that week. Lupin class made African masks. They used bright colours to create their own unique designs. They also enjoyed listening to African music. Year 3 took part in a virtual reality workshop. They used virtual reality headsets to explore locations around the world! We also had steel pan and Chinese music sessions.
Congratulations to Kornelia and D’Vante for gaining the most votes in our School Council elections during Democracy Day and becoming our Head and Deputy Head of School Council. Along with all of the other candidates, their speeches were of a very high standard and the school are incredibly lucky to have them championing the voice of all of our pupils. After the election, our Head of School Council Kornelia said, “I am very excited to be Head of School Council this year. I am looking forward to making Hoxton Garden a happier and even better place to learn!”
