Welcome to Hawking Class!
Hawking Class have made a great start back after Christmas! I've really enjoyed listening to what they got up to during the Christmas holidays and see some of the photos from thereading challenge.
Our topic this term (Spring 2018) is the Neighbourhood Plan; more information about this can be found within the class letter. I'm certain that that the children will love this topic.
During this term, we have forest school on Tuesday afternoons, so please make sure that your children are sent with the right clothes to get changed with.
We ask that PE kits are in all week, please.
This half term, we will be focusing on the value of integrity; we will talk about this in class and during assemblies
Mrs Johnson, Mrs Godfrey and I have really enjoyed teaching your children so far and getting to know them. We look forward to having your children in our class and seeing them progress.
Royal International Air Tattoo
All of Years 3 to 6 had a great day at the Air Tattoo. We watched aerobatic displays from around the world and explored planes new and old.
Hawking class have worked hard to create their own companies. The children could make their own product to sell and their profit would either be donated to a charity of the children's choice or buy something for the school.
I'm really proud of how the children have worked and how well they sold their products after school on Friday.
We had lots of fun at Burford today! We did 4 different activities. We learnt about Ultraviolet lights, reflecting and refractive lights, made kaleidoscopes and pin hole cameras.
It was great fun and hope to go again soon!
We had a good turnout for the annual swimming gala - despite it being on an Inset Day!
The children that came performed brilliantly - with some having to swim up a year group, and others being asked to swim even though they'd only come to watch!! We managed to fill all races and had many children placed in the top 3.
Thanks to all the children that came along - and to all of the parents that came to support.
On 22nd May we had another fab visit from Mike Mullen -3x Pro BMX Halfpipe Champion and Former World Master Champion. Once again, he came in and started the day with an assembly that reminisced about his life and encouraged the children to keep going and never give up; whatever their passion, continue to work hard and -if you fail - pick yourself up, dust yourself down and have another go!
Throughout the day, each class got to take part in a workshop with Mike. He taught some children to ride a bike, boosted the confidence of others and encouraged all of them to be daring and step outside their comfort zone.
At the end of the day, he put together a small team of children to take part in a show for the rest of the school and parents. To the amazement of the children, he even jumped over 7 teachers and parents!!
If the day did anything, then hopefully it inspired children to dust of their bikes and scooters and get outside.
