Here are some of the recent events which have taken place at Hampton Infant School and Nursery

Arts Week

It was lovely to see all the colourful artwork displays in the school hall and reception area for Arts Week and the children really enjoyed sharing their projects.

Bounce Beyond Trampolining

All the Reception to Year 2 classes enjoyed a fun and active trampolining session on 6th & 7th June. Lots of coundowns, music and laughter could be heard coming from the hall and it was a definite hit with the children (and the teachers).

The Easter Bunny Bounce

The Easter Bunny has been busy today at HISN visiting each class and joining the children in a sponsored bounce in the playground to raise money for HISNA. The children have had fun and the bunny is off for a well-earned rest!

LazerLions Visit

Over March and April all Infant School classes will have the opportunity to experience a fun lazer session. The children who have taken part so far have really enjoyed it and it has been a great physical activity for everyone.

West End Dance Workshops

This week all classes are being given the opportunity to attend and experience an interactive West End dance workshop based around a text. Nursery, Reception and Y1 explored ‘How to Catch a Star’ and Y2 explored ‘The Enormous Crocodile’.

Author Visit - Mrs P

To celebrate World Book Day, all the children enjoyed meeting author 'Mrs P' and listening to ‘JoJo and Jessie’', a wonderful story with an important message about the importance of friendship.

Author Visit - Mike Brownlow

This week we were delighted to welcome well known author Mike Brownlow to HISN.  He worked with all the children in groups to share some of his books from the 'Ten Little' series such as Ten Little Pirates and 10 Little Penguins. The children were very engaged and we hope this will inspire them to continue their love of books and reading. We are very lucky to have such a visit and are very grateful to the team at HISNA who have supported us with this. Children enjoyed creating their own ‘10 little’ book based on their class pet and we are really proud of the results.

Internet Safety Day

On Tuesday 7th February we celebrated Safer Internet Day 2023. This is an annual global event that takes place in over 170 countries, in an effort to make the internet a safe place for children and young people. This year the theme was ' Want to talk about it? Making Space for conversations about life online'. The children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all completed Safer Internet Day activities and learnt about how to stay safe online, as well as completing an online safety quiz. Safer Internet Day provided us with a great opportunity to have a conversation with our children about their online lives and how to stay safe when using the internet. At Hampton Infant School and Nursery the children are taught the SMART rules to help us do this.


Christmas at HISN

Throughout the month of December the children really got into the Christma spirit, enjoying a Christmas Shopping day, a visit from Santa and his elves as well as Christmas parties and a special festive lunch. We were very proud of the class Christmas shows and the children enjoyed laughing at our annual staff Christmas Panto performance on the last day of term!



STEM week was very busy and exciting with lots of science experiments, an adventure inside the Explorer Dome and a brilliant show from Professor Bubbleworks who made a toliet roll fly and put people into huge bubbles.


Author Visit - Lucy Reynolds & Jenna Herman

To celebrate the opening of our new Reading Den in the playground we were very lucky to have a visit from Lucy Reynolds and Jenna Herman who shared their lovely book 'Hedgehogs don't live in the city' with all our children. Lucy and Jenna gave lovely feedback on the experience and our wonderful and enthusiastic children.

Arts week and gallery for visitors

All the children enjoyed the arts week and produced some fantastic art which was much admired in the gallery. Thank you to all the parents and carers who visited and supported the the children with this.
