River Model

January 19th, 2018
To help everyone learn the vocabulary to communicate their learning about rivers, the Hawks have been busy building a model. First they used papier-mache to create the model and then painted it. Everyone used their collaboration skills to succeed in the task and produce a fantastic model.

A team from the Hawks went to Deer Park School to compete in a gymnastics competition. They were all aspiring to do their best by thinking carefully about how to improve their performance. Running powerfully, the team used the springboard to leap onto the vault and jumped with confidence. During the floor routine, everyone took great care to perform with control and combine their movements with fluency. Well done Team!

Gym competition


January 5th, 2018

The Hawks took part in a gymnastic competition at SWR against other local schools. They were able to apply a floor routine and a vault they had been learning in PE. It was really pleasing to see everyone having a go and doing their best. They also enjoyed the opportunity to do some team balances and learn to use the beam with the help of SWR’s fantastic Sports Leaders.

After all of their fantastic efforts one team finished second and one team finished first! A full gallery of pictures is available on the school website.

Healthy Meal

October 20th, 2017

The Hawks have been learning how to cook a healthy meal as part of their topic of ‘Feeling Fit’. They learnt about a healthy diet and then helped design a meal that would be part of a balanced diet. While they were making the meal, they learnt knife skills and how to work hygienically. When the meal of chicken couscous, followed by mango and banana muffins, was ready, everyone really enjoyed tasting the result of their hard work. They have taken their recipes home and will be able to prepare a delicious meal for their families as well! A full gallery of pictures is available on the school website.

The Hawks have been learning about the functions of different types of teeth and were wondering how toothpaste worked. They have been making their own toothpaste and testing how well it worked compared to toothpaste they could buy at the shops.
