Over the next couple of weeks each class in school will be finding out about a person that has shown great courage in their lifetime. This may be someone that is still alive now or someone from our recent or distant past.

We will then be presenting our courageous people in a gallery in the learning zone with a brief biography of their lives. Each class will also get to present their argument for their elected person both in assembly and on film.

Deciding who is the most courageous person will be down to all of us; pupils, parents and staff will get to cast their vote during the last week of term before Easter. It will be a very interesting topic to discuss and a very interesting choice to make!

Some possible suggestions for people that have shown grand acts of courage:

  • Martin Luther King Jr. standing up for equal rights.
  • Nelson Mandela for fighting against apartheid.
  • Anne Frank and her family living in secret and quiet to hide from the Nazis.
  • Mother Teresa living amongst the poorest of the poor and helping them to thrive, learn and grow.




Mr Hill reads Tom Palmer


World Book Day turned Where's Wally style today at HFJS! I spent the first hour of my day enjoying the Tom Palmer book 'Foul Play' with the lovely group of chidlren you can see in our book day selfie. All the children took turns reading pages from the book to each other with great expresssion and enthusiasm whilst also tucking into a book day breakfast together.

Shortly after that we ventured out onto the Infant School playground for a photograph with all the chidlren from each school together dressed up in their costumes! A fantastic effort by everybody and great fun!

The next question is how will everyone get on with the 'Where's Wally' hunt?
