Neighbourhood Plan Logo Competition.
On Friday the 14th October we had the Mayor come into school for assembly to award one of our pupils a certificate, a prize of an art set, and a voucher for the school for winning the competition. All she had to do was create a logo that shows what she loves about Huntingdon. Not only did she get a certificate, an art set, and a voucher but her logo will also be used for the Neighbourhood Plan Project. Well Done a true Hartford Star.
The Clowns Craze
Over the last couple of days, many of our children have been talking about the ‘Clown Craze’ that is happening at the moment. They have seen reports on the news and in newspapers and have been sharing what they have seen with their peers. Some children have reported that they have been left a little frightened by what they have seen and heard.
We spoke to all children in assembly on Thursday 13th October to explain that it was nothing to be scared of. Some adults were not being sensible and thought it was funny to dress up as clowns to frighten people. We explained that it was not something that they should concern themselves with and we asked the chidren to refrin from talking about clowns in school. If they were concerned or worried about anything we suggested they spoke to their parents or carers or to an adult at school.
To help us explain we showed them a video from Newsround that investigated this new craze. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/37616622)
