Tasks

Reading Records must be signed weekly by a parent and returned to school on the child's allocated day. This is the case even if the child is reading a novel which is not yet finished. It is vital that children are reading frequently for sustained periods of time to prepare them for future learning.

As part of our work on shape, we have been learning about the parts of a circle and finding the area. We also had a bit of a giggle to the song below - it is very silly but quite helpful too! 

 

Class 6 enjoyed a fantastic performance of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' at Stafford Castle in June. Thankfully, the rain stayed away long enough for us to fully appreciate the thrill of outdoor theatre in this spectacular local setting. We were treated to music, dance, puppetry and even magic throughout the spell-binding performance. Hopefully, this first taste of live Shakespeare will engender a life-long passion for his work!

For the first time in Hob Hill history, year 6 children had the opportunity to spend a whole night in school. Huge amounts of fun were had with very little sleep! The children enjoyed playing games outside before munching snacks on the field. This was followed by a campfire, built expertly by Mrs Adams and Miss Smy (Forest Schools practitioners) and a good old-fashioned sing-song led by Mr Preston and Mrs Davies. It was a fantastic way to celebrate their time at the school and great preparation for camp.

 We are very grateful for your kind donations of cakes and biscuits for our Comic Relief cake sale. We raised over £217 so we're rather proud of ourselves!

   

We couldn't have done it without your support - thank you x

Hob Hill really went to town for this year's World Book Day!

Hob Hill's Christmas Carol Concert at St. Michael's Church, Brereton

Back in December, children from Years 5 and 6 treated a congregation of parents, family and staff to a beautiful carol concert. It was a marvellous evening of readings, prayer, celebration and song enjoyed by all in attendance.

Class 5 & 6 Outing

The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery

Children and staff enjoyed an educational day learning about the culture of the Ancient Greeks. In the morning, we were able to create our own Greek-style pots. The session was led by Lisa, a 'clay-expert' who expertly guided the children through the process. the end products are fantastic and we were even allowed to bring them back to school.

After a picnic lunch, the afternoon session promised to be very exciting with rumours of real Greek artefacts. We weren't disappointed and were lucky enough to see a crater and amphora which were over 2500 years old!

It was a really fun day, enjoyed by all in attendance.

Rugeley Schools' Peace Service

On Wednesday 19th October, Class 6 represented Hob Hill at Saint Augustine's annual Peace Service. The pupils joined other local school children to reflect on the global plight of refugees and the need for peace. 

The congregation was treated to a variety of performances including poetry, songs and readings. Class 6 shared their Recipe for Peace and gave a heart-warming rendition of 'Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace'. 

Staff and parents were extremely proud of their efforts.

Class 6 had a truly fabulistic day dressing up to celebrate Roald Dahl Day! See which of your favourite characters you can see hanging around in these pictures.
