Welcome to Howard School. This is a county comprehensive co-educational day school which caters for students of the 9-13 age range. It is a purpose built middle school and we are extremely proud of its excellent facilities which include well equipped design technology and art rooms as well as two purpose-built science labs. We also have a huge sports barn and extensive fields attached to the school.
Friday - Explore Outdoor
The whole school enjoyed a glorious day of outdoor fun on Friday. The pupils took part in climbing, a cycle course, archery, water rockets and fire making amongst other activities. The weather was great, which was a good as there was a BBQ as well.
Headway Coin Drop
Once again we are collecting money for Headway. Headway is a real lifeline for people who have suffered a head injury. They supply the rehabilitation that the NHS are not able to. Unfortunately few people know about this great charity, making fund raising difficult for them. On February 11th we created a huge picture on the Hall floor made of coins donated to Headway. We raised £131.78, which will be added to the total that Headway Suffolk will receive from us in October. Thank you to all those who donated coins.
500 WORDS asks children aged 13 and under up and down the UK to put pen to paper to compose an original work of fiction using no more than 500 words.
Children will be able to submit their stories via the entry form on the 500 WORDS website at bbc.co.uk/500words. Listen out to the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Monday 19th January for details on how to submit your story and how to become a volunteer judge.
The competion promotes literacy among children, encouraging them to explore their creativity through writing and reading, providing them with a wealth of tips from published writers and other resources (including the Alphabot v2.0) to support their learning.
Every single story submitted will be read by a brilliant, book-loving army of librarians and teachers from around the UK. The Reading Agency are back on board, to shortlist the Top 50, and the competition's panel of best-selling authors return to Radio 2 HQ in early May to pick three medal winners in two categories: 5 - 9 years old; and 10-13 years old.
The top 50 authors will all be invited to the 500 WORDS Final on Friday 29 May to hear the winners announced live on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show.
