  • Sports Day

    Published 30/06/23

    With clear skies and hardly any rain, Sports day saw over 450 children participate in activities ranging from the 50m sprint to the Egg and Spoon Race. During half time we were treated to a cheerleading performance by our charismatic cheerleaders, who spent only a term practising their routine. After the half time show, the children participated in year group races with finalists being crowned with medals. A highlight for most of the children were the parents, guardians and carers races! It was a joy to see so many step up and participate. Well done to all the children who participated in Sports Day. Moreover, thank you to all the parents, guardians and carers who came to support in full force. We look forward to hosting you next year

  • Empathy Day

    Published 23/06/23

    At Hewens Primary School, we believe that Empathy isn’t just important, it’s everything. Rather than celebrate Empathy Day on the 8th June, we celebrated it throughout the week! The week started with the children attending an assembly, where they learned more about empathy by developing their empathy skills before putting them into action. Other activities throughout the week included children creating their very own empathy superpower glasses, which they used whilst having their empathy power book read aloud. A highlight for most of the children was the empathy exchange discussions as they enabled the children to walk in someone else’s shoes. Well done to all the children who participated in all the activities throughout the week.

  • What a close Claw!

    Published 09/06/23

    Last term, a selected group of children across Key Stage 2 were chosen to represent the School at an NFL Flag Football Tournament. Having won both their friendlies, Hewens Tigers narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Nationals, where the winning school has the privilege to represent England in an international NFL Flag Football tournament held in Las Vegas!
