Year 1: Letter Formation

Year 1 have been recapping how to form their letters correctly as well as revising their phase 2 phonics. They have all been working very hard so as a treat, they were able to practise their letters in glitter, with playdough, with chalk and using felt tip pens! 




Year 2: Bread Making

To begin our History topic on The Great Fire of London, the children in Year 2 experienced making bread rolls from scratch. They used traditional ingredients and were shown how to make the rolls by hand. They enjoyed mixing, kneading, rolling and shaping their bread dough into a design ready to be baked in the oven. 

This week, the children will learn about how Thomas Farriner baked his bread for his bakery in 1666 and how this compares to modern times. They will discuss the dangers in the past and how this led to the start of the Great Fire. 

This was a fun, enjoyable, tasty and engaging way to begin our History topic in Year 2. We just hope they tasted as good at home as they smelt in school!

Year 3: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

This afternoon in Year 3 was a crazy one indeed! We discussed the importance of teamwork and thought about how working well as a team will help our learning this year. To test the children's skills, they created their very own crazy golf courses. It was clear to the Year 3 teachers that the children can definitely work well together - teamwork makes the dream work! What a great start to the year 3PP, 3EM and 3NZ!

Year 1: A Very British Affair

In Geography Year One have been learning about the four countries in the UK. To celebrate the end of the unit, Year One had a very British afternoon. The children had strawberries and cream whilst watching Wimbledon, learnt about the Queen and then had an afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was the highlight of the afternoon tea and the children loved trying a scone with jam and cream.

This week the children also took part in the readers' treat for those readers who read three times every week this term. The children enjoyed a refreshing ice lolly in the sun!

Sports Day 2021

Although run slightly differently this year, our Hacton athletes had a fantastic time at our annual sports day. Running, jumping, throwing and soaking were just a few of the challenges children took on. Great fun was had by all in the glorious sunshine.


Have a Great Summer!

Have a great summer everyone! Love Hacton x




















Year 6: Goodbye and Good Luck

It’s been a very emotional day for our year six pupils. Good luck at secondary school in September - we miss you already!

 





Year 6 Awards

Year 6 have had a fantastic morning celebrating the personalities of all the different children during their year group awards ceremony with some dancing thrown in for good measure. They are all excited and ready for their final assembly. 




Year 6: Penultimate Day Shirt Signing

It was a slightly emotional afternoon yesterday afternoon watching the Year 6s signing each other's shirts in preparation for their last day today and taking the next big step in their learning journey. Lots of smiles but also a few teary eyes. 

We're hoping that today, their last day, is one to remember.
