Our school commemorated Remembrance Day on November 11th 2021 with a service where we listened to poetry and readings by our year 6 pupils as well as listening to a reading of In Flanders Fields (John McCrae) beautifully read to us by Wright in year 5. We all thought about why we hold the service near to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year and how we might have hope that all wars could end one day . We also welcomed Mr Steele who played the Last Post on his trumpet and Mr Fleet who read For The Fallen by Lawrence Binyon. All of our children were wonderfully respectful during the two minute silence which followed.
LOGAN’S MASSIVE AUTUMN 2021 PUMPKIN
Logan from Discovery Class has grown a huge pumpkin from a seed.
It took ages to grow but was well worth the wait!
Well done Logan!!
We have a great 'Green Team' in year 4 and 5 who take pride in keeping the school site clean and litter free. The school looks amazing thanks to their efforts. Well done team!
Harrison, Betsy and Sophie are just a few of the children helping with this brilliant work.
During October we were fortunate enough to enjoy a Harvest Festival Assembly and as part of this we thought about helping other less fortunate than ourselves. Our children and parents each contributed a food gift which was gratefully received by the Curry Rivel Food Bank Charity later on in the day. Our thanks goes to Mr Cottington who led our assembly and helped us all to reflect on how to help others.
During the Harvest Assembly corn is ground in a pestle and mortar by Eddy and Felix to make flour.
Roald Dahl Day
We all had a phizz-whizzingly fun day dressing up as our favourite Roald Dahl characters.
Hambridge Summer Reading Bingo!
Well done to all of the children who took part in the summer reading bingo! They will all be presented with a certificate and their wonderful photos will be displayed in the library. From reading in the bath, to reading whilst eating an ice cream to following a recipe and making a den to read in. You all looked like you had a fun and fabulous time and please enjoy looking through the photos below.
Well done to all of the children who took part in the poetry competition and learnt one of their poems off by heart and performed them in class. We held the semi-finals on Monday and Mrs Chesterfield and Mr St John had the very difficult task of deciding on 2 winners from each key stage who will go through to the final on Tuesday and compete against children from other schools. Congratulations to our finalists: Flynn, Erin, Scarlett and Jack.
Women's History Month 2021
Yet again the children of Hambridge have risen to the challenge and blown us away with their efforts and skills! They have spent time researching and creating amazing projects to learn about and celebrate the achievements of women throughout history. We have all learned so much about these amazing women, what it took for them succeed, and the impact their achievements have had on our lives today. Hopefully this will inspire all of us to pursue our dreams and know that anything is possible!
Here are some of our amazing competition entries for the potato book characters. It was a very tough decision as all entries were fantastic, but the winners are:
