Rewarding Reading

In school, every week in our Friday assembly, children would be celebrated for their reading achievements. We want to make sure that everyone still has the opportunity to earn their bronze, silver and gold certificates for reading books by their year group authors. 

Continue to write down the books you read by these authors and record them on your boarding pass. In the new school year, we will give out your certificates and celebrate your achievements before starting on the authors for our new year groups.

Who are your year group authors?

Reception: Martin Waddell, Julia Donaldson and traditional tales
Year 1: Jill Murphy, Allan Ahlberg and Oliver Jeffers
Year 2: Alex T Smith, Lauren Child and Dick King-Smith
Year 3: David Walliams, Roald Dahl and Andy Stanton
Year 4: Kate DiCamillo, Cressida Cowell and Louis Sacher
Year 5: J.K Rowling, Anne Fine and Lemony Snicket
Year 6: Malorie Blackman, Anthony Horowitz and Micheal Morpurgo​

Junk Modelling Challenge

Calling all pupils who are up for a creative challenge! In school, we love our junk modelling, so why not give it a go at home?
  1. Collect old cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, lids, toilet roll tubes and scraps of coloured paper. 
  2. Stick them together, decorate them and make a fantastic model of anything you want. 
Please take a photo of your model and send it to art@hacton.havering.sch.uk.

We look forward to sharing your captivating creations on our blog. Before the end of the term, our Art and Design coordinator, Mrs Murphy, will decide who is the Hacton junk modelling champion. It's time to get creative!

Thank you also to our Team A parents who have followed the exact guidance regarding drop off and pick up arrangements and for your kind words and positivity over the past 2 days. What a fantastic school community we have.

We look forward to welcoming our Team B pupils back into school on Thursday.
