Achievements of the Week (w/c 11th July)

Congratulations to our Times Table winners this week! These pupils have hopped aboard the Times Table train to continue their journey to becoming a Times Table Champion. They have worked exceptionally hard to learn and master their multiplication and division facts. 

Congratulations to our Reading and Poetry Superstrs this week! To achieve this award, all of these children have either read poems or books by their year group authors (Bronze is 5, Silver is 10 and Gold is 15). A big well done to this week's winners who have demonstrated great commitment and dedication to reading. 

Our Achievements of the Week winners should be very proud of their success! 

E for Effort and WOW! Winners (w/c 11th July)

In order to reward our pupils who have gone above and beyond in their learning each week and put in extra effort, each class teacher chooses one pupil to receive the E for Effort cup and certificate. 

This week, lots of teachers have awarded E for Effort to their whole class for their hard work and enthusiasm throughout this academic year. 

Here are this week's individual winners. Well done - we are very proud of you all!

Times Table Challenge 2022

Throughout the year, Mr Hobson runs a highly competitive times table competition for our KS2 children. With each round of the competition, the points are collected in preparation for the big reveal of who the times table champions are going to be! 

Well done to this year's winners who scored 150/150 and 146/150! Very impressive results! 

Caring and Achievement Awards 2022

Proud parents and teachers joined our pupils in the hall for Hacton's annual Caring and Achievement assembly. Carefully chosen children were presented with awards for their academic achievement and their kindness throughout the year. 

At Hacton, we are incredibly proud of each and every one of our pupils and the way in which they represent the values of our school in the classroom, around the school and in our local community. It was an almost impossible task to select the winners but all of the children chosen have displayed outstanding kindness or impressive progress throughout the year. 

Congratulations to the wonderful children who were presented with awards this year. 

Year 6: Forest School

Last week, 6KB celebrated the end of their time at Forest School with a wonderful campfire. Despite the warm weather, everyone enjoyed hot dogs, s’mores and cups of hot chocolate around the fire. All the children toasted a marshmallow on the fire under the watchful eye of Liz Ladybird and Paul Pine. As the children enjoyed their snacks, we talked about the things we have enjoyed the most and what we could do to make it even better. Our favourite suggestion was a tree house and a park; we will see! 

Thank you for being wonderful participants over the last few weeks!

Sports Day 2022

Our EYFS pupils were the first to kick start our Sports Day line up! With smiles on their faces, our enthusiastic athletes hurdled, balanced and ran to encouraging cheers! Thank you parents/carers for making it such a special occasion for the children. 

Next, it was the turn of our KS2 athletes. The children took part in eleven different events that tested their skills of throwing, jumping, running and ball control. Fantastic teamwork was demonstrated by all. At different points of the afternoon, each team took a turn to be in the lead but the final result was decided by the highly competitive relay race! There could only be one winner and this year, the winning house was...Ascot!

Finally, it was the turn of our KS1 children. Heading out to the field in their red, yellow, green and blue outfits, our keen athletes were bouncing with excitement! The children took part in six different events including the relay, football dribbling and bean bag throwing. It was a close competition but this year, the winning house was...Goodwood!
