This academic year has started well and we are pleased to welcome our new Year 3 children to the school. A huge thank you to the parents for supporting them in the transition and we look forward to working with you all.

We have been celebrating Black History Month throughout October and been tak-ing part in a big art project with HMDT music. We have been working hard at making our curriculum even more repre-sentative of all and also improving the diversity of our books. A huge thank you to those that have donated books to us using our wish list from twitter, we really appreciate your support.

Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,

This year has been another huge success and we are incredibly proud of all that the children have achieved. They have worked hard in lessons, played sports, attended competitions and festivals, put on plays and performances and tried their very best in everything.

A huge well done to Year 6 for their superb end of year performance which was enjoyed by the school and parents alike. I would like to wish them all the very best in their new secondary schools, and I hope you know how proud we are of you and how much you will be missed. Happy holi-days!

Hillborough Junior School are thrilled to be part of the Tower of London Superbloom pro-ject. There are only 50 schools in the country who are partners with The Tower for this pro-ject, and the children are very excited to be joining in. The Tower of London is transform-ing it’s Moat into a garden to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, but to also encourage people to spend more time outdoors for the benefit of our mental health following Covid. The moat will be a walk-through garden that will be filled with plants and flowers and at a certain time, the whole moat will turn blue! We have some of the same seeds as the Tower and have planted them here. We hope that our own ‘Superbloom’ will occur at the same time as the one in London.

Newsletter Spring 2 2022

We have had quite an array of visitors to Hillborough this term including the Young Shakespeare Company, Power 2 Inspire, Bikeability and M&M productions. On welcoming them to the school, I am overwhelmed by the positive comments I receive about the school and its pupils.

We have been treated to the Year 3 performance, their first at Hillborough, and they were magnificent. My thanks to the whole of Year 3 for bringing a smile to our faces. Our Year 5 pupils returned from their stay at Kingswood – lots of outdoor activities and fun was had by all. My thanks to the staff members who made it such a great experience for the children.

This last half term has been concluded wonderfully with our Year 4 performance of Aladdin and our rescheduled Hillborough’s Got Talent Final. The talent that the children possess at Hillborough is phenomenal and never ceases to amaze me. I have certainly witnessed some stars for the future over the last few days. We have been thrilled to be able to invite parents back to watch school performances: it means so much to the children. A primary education should always aim to unearth the skills and talents in all our children. The opportunities that we provide for the children are designed to do just that. Recently, we have had pupils competing at county and regional levels in a range of sports with one child being talent spotted by the British Paralympic Association. Amazing!

We are still in the midst of a pandemic although we are starting see green shoots of recovery. The attendance at Hillborough, although below our normal high standards, is still very good in relation to attendance locally and nationally, so thank-you.
I wish you a safe and restful half term break.
