Craft Club and the Furry Aliens

Year 1 Craft Club had a fabulous session this week making furry aliens out of pipe cleaners, beads, pom poms and googly eyes. Pupils and teachers (Miss Winkler, Miss Hornsby and Mrs Perry) had great fun making the out-of-this-world creatures and they are rightly proud of their handiwork. We look forward to seeing what they come up with next!

Mrs Delmonte's Marathon

Having trained for many months in preparation for the London Marathon, I was not disappointed. Once I had conquered my nerves and settled into the race, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event from start to finish. Seeing familiar faces along the route shouting words of encouragement certainly boosted me towards the end. In glorious sunshine, I crossed the finish line in 4 hours 16 minutes (and 4 seconds)! My 2012 marathon experience is one I will never forget... the sense of achievement is incredible. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of everyone at Hacton Primary and would like to thank everyone for their encouragement, support and sponsorship raising over £1000 for my chosen charity, Help the Hospices. Thank you.

Mrs Delmonte.

Roman Day by 3AW

On Roman Day we marched loudly around the hardworking school. It was funny and really exciting. As we invaded 2CL there was no-one to be seen but when we went in further we saw 2CL Celts hiding under their desks in fear! The Celt man told us that Emily had the same colour hair as Celts and dressed her up as Boudicca. With some Roman soldiers we learnt Roman commands and how to make a tortoise with our shields.

We had a lovely banquet with pitta bread and grapes. To entertain the parent helpers we sung some Roman songs. We had an entertaining and fantastic day learning about the Celts and the Romans.

Running The London Marathon

On Sunday our very own Mrs Delmonte (Acting Deputy Head) will take to the streets of London to run in the Virgin London Marathon. After months of intense training Mrs Delmonte is apprehensive but excited to finally be running in the prestigious 26.2 mile race.

Mrs Delmonte said: "It's been hard work training for such a long run and I know the marathon is going to push me to the limit but I'm raising money for a very worthwhile cause, Help the Hospices, and that's motivating me to succeed".

All the staff and pupils of Hacton Primary wish Mrs Delmonte the very best of luck for Sunday: Come on, you can do it!

Please contribute to Mrs Delmonte's fundraising for Help the Hospices here:
