Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 6th November 2017

We were blessed with a lovely clear, dry night last Friday for our annual fireworks event organised by our wonderful PTFA; perfect for enjoying soup, hotdogs and hot chocolate whilst watching the professional display.  Thank you to everyone who supported this event and those who gave up their time, to help it run so smoothly. In particular, special thanks to those who donated food to sell on the night:

The Golden Cross
Ralitza Gilbert
A.P. Meats
Ferry Fast
Harvington Guides

These contributions make all the difference to the final amount raised, which will be confirmed as soon as possible.


On Monday, Miss Beaver gave a Phonics Presentation to parents which was followed by visits to Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to see how phonics is taught in the classroom. Thank you to those parents who attended - we hope you found it informative.


Mrs Clark and the Eco Warriors met on Tuesday lunchtime to discuss how we can make our school even more eco-friendly.


Our Roots and Shoots have been busy harvesting, drying and hand packaging sunflower and runner bean seeds from our school garden.  These hand-crafted packets will be for sale on Tuesday 14th November after school outside Year 5 at the amazing price of of 50p!


The governors, staff and children of Harvington C.E. First and Nursery school took time out from their classrooms for two services of remembrance today.


Firstly, the school remembered all those who lost their lives or who were injured in the wars. The Year Five pupils read out the names of the fallen and the whole school stood in silence. Ethan Nicol, Lotty Sealey-Wade and Freya Dishart played the Last Post with Mrs Fishbourne and then the whole school honoured the two minutes silence. After the service the children walked back to their classrooms silently, placing their poppies on the altar as they went. It was a very moving service and one that is so important to us as a school.


In the afternoon we all went outside and stood around the new tree and bench that we have in our outside area. These have both been placed in our grounds to remember our special, best friend Brian Tarling who sadly passed away last year. We held a short service to remember all that Brian did for the school, not only in his long standing role as Chair of Governors but also as a supporter of the school. The children turned and looked at our sports field and buildings and had time to reflect on all Brian achieved.
