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.

See the full diary...
We've got some super readers in Hawking Class. These children have read every day since getting their reading diaries and bookmarks.
I'm really impressed with the enthusiasm to want to read by all the children and some already filling in their reading diaries answering some of the questions in their diaries left by Mrs Johnson and I!!
Lets keep up the amazing reading and see if we can all fill in our bookmarks and get those prizes at the end of the term!
The Adventures of Robin Hood
We have been learning all about Robin Hood's adventures. We've started looking at how Robin Hood became an outlaw and wanted to help the poor.
To help us remember the story we put actions to the sentences and drew our own story maps.
See if we can perform the actions to you and see how much we know.
Hawkings Class Bears Adventures
Not only have the children been getting used to a new class but they've also been getting used to two new class members. Lily and Harry (names chosen by the children) get to go home with two children on a Friday and come back to class on Wednesday and share all the adventures they've been getting up to during that week.
Imogen and Luke got to take them home in the first week and the whole class enjoyed hearing what they got up to.
Oscar and Jamie get to take them home this week, we can't wait to hear what they got up to!!
KS2 trip to Chedworth Roman Villa
On Monday 10th July the whole of Key Stage 2 visited Chedworth Roman Villa to help bring our Romans topic to life. It was a really magical day.
We all experienced being archaeologists by working out what the Romans would have eaten and drunk by studying real artefacts, such as bones, rocks, metalware and earthenware.
We also had an amazing tour of the excavated site and could imagine what it would have been like to take a bath (a lot of oil and scraping), dine, make offerings to the gods, walk along the beautiful and intricate mosaics and use the 'lavatorium'!
In one workshop we dressed up as Roman slaves and were allocated jobs. We had to wear tags around our necks and sacks as tunics. We also ground up herbs and spices that the Romans would have used to cure illnesses or help people sleep.
A lot of fun was had and a lot of learning was done by all!
Legge House Day 2
Lots of fun, including a birthday!
