E for Effort

Every week, teachers recognise pupils in their class who have made an extra effort. These pupils are awarded the E for Effort cup in front of the whole school during our Friday afternoon assembly.

Congratulations to all the wonderful children who made an extra effort during the first week of the summer term.

Summer Term Begins

With the sunshine making a welcome appearance and our children rested after the Easter break, the summer term got off to a bright start. As usual, we have a busy term ahead with plenty of inspiring activities planned for our pupils: school trips, theatre visits, sports competitions and much more! Please check the regularly updated school calendar for the list of upcoming events.

Year 4: India Day

First we showed off our costumes at the start of India day, then we made delicious veggie samosas. Chloe said "I liked the samosas because they were yummy. We put curry power in them along with the mixed veggies and potatoes." (by Sophie and Arabella)

For our dessert Mrs Cornish made delicious barfi, it was made out of coconut, icing sugar and condensed milk. Caution: don't make it to runny. Fantastic Miss Wells taught us some interesting Bollywood dancing. The moves were: first one hand apple in the basket then two handed apple in the basket, chop and swish, tornado punch, twisting snake and lastly the turn and step. In talented Miss Claridge's class we made some detailed mehndi patterns. That was the end of our wonderful day!  (by ChloĆ© and Chikosi)

Literacy Week: Hogwarts at Hacton

Thank you for all the effort that went into providing your children with Hogwarts costumes for today's celebration of Harry Potter. Perfect Potters, sneaky Snapes, hard-working Hermiones and even michievious Malfoys filled our classrooms ensuring a fantastic end to a magical Literacy Week.

Happy Birthday Mrs Ware!

Not only was today a special themed day for the pupils of Hacton school, but Mrs Ware celebrated a very special birthday. We are not allowed to mention the age; however, the children wanted to show her how much they value her involvement in their lives. Performing her favourite Ronan Keating song, children sang her a birthday treat whilst showing the words that had chosen to describe her.

Happy birthday, Mrs Ware - we all love you!

Science Club: Chemical Reactions

During a recent Science experiment, children in KS2 had the opportunity to work with a range of different materials and substances to create a variety of chemical reactions. They used baking soda, food colouring, citric acid and many other substances to create some wonderful potions (some of which became very messy). The super scientists then changed the amount of the things they were mixing (adding more of some ingredients and taking away others) to see if this affected the type of reaction they were getting.

Hogwarts Takeover!

Hogwarts has officially taken over Hacton today as even the staff have transformed in to characters from the book!
