Class 5/6 Outing to Blists Hill Victorian Town
Children from Class 6 enjoyed a fascinating day at Blists Hill Museum. It is a brilliant museum with so much to see - definitely worth another visit!
Our morning was spent visiting the many traditional retailers in the town and learning about how Victorians would have done their shopping. We spotted some familiar brands such as Heinz and Cadbury's in the grocers, learnt the secret of keeping little children still in the photographers and spent most of our Victorian money in the sweet shop (not surprisingly)!
After a quick lunch in the Boys' Brigade Hut, we rushed up to the school where we were met by our teacher for the afternoon. Hurriedly, we were ushered to a changing room where we were to be transformed into the glum-looking, yet obedient, children you see in the picture above.Even Mr Haynes, Mrs Grimley and Mrs O'Hagan dressed in role. That was pretty hilarious; Mrs O looked like Mary Poppins!
The Victorian school-room was certainly an experience.....
But we are a tough bunch and survived to tell the tale!
Enjoy looking through the photographs of our day.
Our topic in the Spring term is the Vikings. Fierce warriors, adventurers and raiders, these people had their own gods and goddesses, nine Norse worlds and knew how to tell a good saga.
Class 5 & 6 will be studying Tony Bradman's novel 'Viking Boy' to support their learning.
The Hart School Christmas Quiz
A huge well done is due to the six children who represented Hob Hill at this annual event: Owen Quinn, Lexie Poole, Jamie Jessop, Aimee Goldsmith, Charlie Sayle and Neve Wagg. The children achieved a fabulous score and came a close second out of eleven Rugeley primary schools - congratulations!
Class 5/6 Outing to Blists Hill Museum
The weather, unfortunately, was against us and we were forced to turn back to school when a blizzard began as we approached Telford.
Not to be beaten, we remained cheerful and enjoyed our packed lunches back at school.
The visit will be rescheduled in the new year; watch this space!

Hob Hill 2016-2017
Take a look at what last year's Class 6 got up to....
For the first time in Hob Hill history, in July 2017, 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.
On Wednesday 6th June, Class 6 visited the beautiful cathedral in Lichfield to learn more about pilgrimage and the life of Saint Chad. They took part in a variety of activities with children from other Diocesan schools. A great day was had by all!
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
Check out these brilliant costumes!
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.
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.
