Hookstone Kids' Club
Epic Emeralds won the House Points Cup last term and enjoyed their own non-uniform day on Friday 12th January. The children are awarded points for a variety of things, including good behaviour, great work, polite manners and a positive attitude to work.
On Monday 15th January our Year 5 and Year 6 children travelled to Sheffield Arena to take part in the Young Voices Concert, in a choir comprising of over 5000 children. As always they had an absolutely amazing time and were a real credit to our school and their families.
Sporting influence continue to support our PE in school, they are working with our Junior children on a Monday and our Infant children on a Friday. They run a Friday lunch club for our Junior sports leaders and for the children who compete at the Tchoukball competition at Harrogate High on a Wednesday after school. They are also currently running an after school Tchoukball club for our Year 3 and 4 children.
A few year 5 and 6 are also going to Harrogate high after school on a Wednesday and taking part in a Tchoukball comp with other schools.
Rowan Class had their own non-uniform day on Friday 19th January as a result of them winning the Term Class Attendance Cup for the whole of last term, with a percentage of 97.80, achieving well above our target of 97.00%
Year 3 and Year 4 enjoyed a magical performance of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, a wonderful launch into our literacy and reading for this term.
The children in Willow had a surprise visit from “The Snow Beast” and had to gather evidence and write down what they saw.
The children wrote some fantastic reports about the incident and came up with some amazing vocabulary. He made a bit of a mess, let’s hope he does not return too quickly!
