At Haworth Primary School all of our children from Year 1 to Year 6 belong to one of our four houses.
Our ‘House system’ was set up some years ago but has recently been restructured in order to have a much more emphasis on developing teamwork and problem solving skills. As part of the restructure, children put forward ideas about possible House names. Ideas such as planets, birds and famous rivers were put forward. The outcome of a vote resulted in the names of British trees being chosen to represent the fourhouses.
Our four houses are :
Willow - Green
Rowan - Red
Elm - Blue
Oak - Yellow
We hold house challenges each term when the children from across the school work together in different age groupings within their houses to do various challenges to earn points for their house.
