Hooke Court Residential 2021

90 Year 4 children woke up this morning bright eyed after a brilliant first night of their residential trip. Today, the children have had a fun packed and educational day that included taking part in a Greek battle! Luckily, the battle ended with smiles on everyone’s faces and the children thrilled that they had experienced the excitement of battle.

The children have also enjoyed getting their hands dirty whilst making a Greek goblet. We have some keen potters in the year group!

Today, they have also learned about the Greek alphabet and tried to write their own names in Greek. It took a lot of concentration to use a quill and ink pot.

It is lovely to see them all having such an amazing time and we will share any more photos that we get from the staff with you all tomorrow.

Year 3 Ancient Egyptians

Today, Year 3 have learned just how gruesome the Ancient Egyptians were. They have had the opportunity to experience the process of mummification and created their own mummified tomatoes.

The children will be observing what happens to the tomatoes over the coming weeks to gain a better understanding of the mummification process.

Get Ready to Read!

Books, books and more books filled the hall today. All the books from across the school have been gathered together so that they can be banded, checked and redistributed across the classes. Have fun reading, everybody!

Year Three Are Water Wise!

Year 3 had their WOW day for their ‘Flow’ topic. They completed four activities:

  • Waterwise – a special guest worked with us to gain a better understanding about the water that we use.
  • Painting – we created water paintings having been inspired by Claude Monet’s work.
  • Science – we tested the ph levels of water from different sources.
  • Music – we made water themed pieces using a range of instruments.
