Horizon Fun Run – 13th June 2017 Great turnout from pupils at, Netherton Moss, St Oswald’s CE Primary, Hatton Hill, The Beacon and Bishop Martin CE Primary.
The Young Leaders from Litherland High were fantastic.
I chose to do my teacher training via a school direct PGCE in one of the Horizon schools as I felt that this offered me the best opportunity for on-the-job learning. Being in a busy classroom for most of the week, I was able to observe great teaching practices throughout the school. As the weeks progressed I was then able to start teaching small groups and then whole classes . My school mentor was always on hand to offer support and guidance , as were all the other staff in school. Along with the other Horizon trainee teachers, I received great CPD throughout my training year led by schools from the Horizon network. I am now lucky enough to be working in a Horizon school , and the support from staff continues.
“Training through Horizon gave me the experiences of working with such a wide variety of pupils and individuals, preparing me for my future career. Horizon offered consistent training and opportunities to explore new and exciting avenues of teaching. The support that I received throughout my training was amazing – from the first meeting up until the day I received a permanent job at my placement school!”
I am so grateful for the Horizon Network, not only for providing job opportunities but also for such supportive training.
The additional CPD sessions were informative and enjoyable whilst allowing networking.
Antibullying ambassadors Rebecca, Kayleigh and Ellie visited Hatton Hill School to talk to Key Stage Two pupils about their role. They were joined by Sharon Hall who was born with Goldenhar Syndrome. She talked to the pupils about her early life experiences.
Young Leaders from Litherland High School were brilliant teaching games to pupils from Netherton Moss. Lunchtime Supervisors from Netherton Moss, Hatton Hill and Bishop Martin joined us.
Each year, Horizon hold three Spelling Bees, Y5 and Y6, Y3 and Y4 and Y2.
Competition is fierce for the winner and runner up trophies.
Staff from Horizon schools worked with ‘Place2Be’ to better understand emotional health and wellbeing.
Choirs from Horizon Schools entertained residents from St Nicholas Court with carols and readings at St Oswald’s Church.
On Tuesday 7th June, 520 pupils from Horizon Schools competed in a Fun Run at Litherland Sports Park.
The event began with young leaders from Litherland High School leading a warm up with year one children who then went on to complete a lap of the track.
The morning progressed with each year group warming up and completing increasing distances. This culminated in year five and six running around both the cycle and running tracks.
All pupils were presented with a medal for completing their races and the fastest girl and boy in each year group were awarded with a commemorative trophy.
The enthusiastic runners were supported throughout the event by young leaders from Litherland High School.
The fantastic young leaders led warm ups, marshalled and timed races, ran with pupils, operated the finish tape and gave out medals. They were a credit to their school throughout the event.
