Welcome to Hawking Class!

Hawking Class have made a great start to the year! I've really enjoyed listening to what they got up to during the summer holidays and sharing what was inside their boxes. 

Our topic this term (Autumn 2017) is the British Monarchy; 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 swimming on Wednesday afternoons, so please make sure that your children are sent with a towel, swimming costume and a hat. 

We ask that PE kits are in all week, please.

This half term, we will be focusing on the value of respect; 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.

Legge House

The children are having an amazing time! They have been orienteering, team building and singing round the camp fire among other things. Look at the pictures to see more. 

Multi skills at Cokethorpe

Our team of Year 3 and 4 children had great fun and took part lots of different activities, including target throwing, relay racing, speed bouncing and keeping a tennis ball up - Ashley managed an amazing 240! Well done to everyone, and thank you to Cokethorpe School for the pizza and ice cream afterwards.

Bookfeast visit for Years 3 to 5

On a very rainy Wednesday 17th June, Years 3 to 5 visited St Hugh's College, Oxford to meet the children's author Claire Barker. 

We all enjoyed listening to her speak about her inspirations to write (she has always loved reading) and we all enjoyed creating a new Pirate character with her. 

She told us that she had been a teaching assistant and was frustrated by the lack of exciting books around. This inspired her to start writing her own stories, the first of which, Wishbone Pepper- Ghost Dog, we have been enjoying at snack and story time. She reminded us that it is never too late to start writing and that it is very, very easy to quickly develop a character and a setting.

So maybe we can all have a go!

Year 3/4 tennis tournament

Well done to everyone who took part in our tennis tournament at Carterton Community College. Fantastic effort and enthusiasm all round!

Science

We have begun to experiment with our bean plants and we have been working very hard to ensure that we are carefully measuring and controlling our plants' conditions. 

The plants that are in very little light in our classroom cupboard are particularly interesting- the leaves near the door are growing and the leaves in the dark are withering away.

We think that this is because plants use light as energy to make food in the leaves.

Photos to follow soon!
