Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 30th October 2017

We welcomed children back to school after the half term break.


On Monday Year 5 went along to Ellenden Farm to do some cooking. The children worked brilliantly as a team measuring and weighing all of the different ingredients. They practised lots of skills such as grating and mixing. Thank you to everyone at Ellenden Farm for having us, the children had a great time.


A football match was hosted at Harvington First School at 3:30pm on Wednesday 1st November. The great Harvington took on Bengeworth! After school, the two teams trained to make sure they were ready for the big match. Bengeworth were extremely good and scored the first goal. Quickly after, Matthew Turner scored a great equaliser for Harvington.

At half time Miss Beaver made a couple of changes and we were raring to get back on the pitch. Reece Brighton soon scored a great goal which took the score to 2-1. Shortly before the end of the game, Bengeworth scored their final goal, making the final score 2-2.

Harvington First School hosted a netball match on Wednesday 1st November for children in Years 3, 4 and 5. The teams were Harvington and Bengeworth. The girls were all feeling nervous but were excited for their game. Sophie Newrick managed to score two great goals for Harvington and the Harvington crowd roared with encouragement! Bengeworth put up a good fight and the final score was 15-2. Although Harvington did not win this match, they are preparing for more matches in the future.

On Thursday we had a VIP visit our school. The bear himself - Pudsey - made a surprise visit to talk to the children about Children in Need. The children were very excited to see him! We will be fundraising to support Children in Need on Friday 17th November when children are invited to come into school dressed as 'Super Heros' in return for a suggested donation of £1.

As part of their theme 'People who help us', Reception class had a special visit from a Policeman this morning. Sergeant Beard talked to the children about his job and how he helps us in our day-to-day lives. The children also had fun trying on some police uniform. Many thanks to Sergeant Beard for visiting us.
