The Digestive System

September 18th, 2017

The Hawks have been learning about the digestive system. They collaborated to take Mr Wilkinson’s breakfast through the digestive system. Everyone really enjoyed finding out about each stage of the process and there were some particularly gooey results!!

First Aid

September 13th, 2017
To begin the topic of ‘Feeling Fit!’ the Hawks have been learning how to look after each other. St John’s Ambulance visited the school to teach everyone how to react if they found someone who was unwell and some aspects of first aid they could administer. It was a fantastic beginning to term and helped everyone think more about their bodies.

Tour de Avening

July 3rd, 2017

To celebrate the start of the Tour de France the Hawks wanted to take part in their own cycling challenge. They brought their bikes to school and Mr Jennings kindly came in to share his expertise. They learnt about the checks they need to do before they go for a ride and some important safety information. Then they completed challenges to test their ability to control their bike. Importantly, they also had lots of fun!

Fun on the bikes!

Plant Puzzles!

June 13th, 2017

To help the Hawks learn to identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants they were given a puzzle. They had four plants in pieces and then had to put them back together again. Some super collaboration skills helped everyone put together their plant. They were able to examine similarities and differences between the plants and recognise the functions of the different parts.

Jason Kenny

Jason Kenny was born in Bolton on the 23rd April 1988. He is a world famous cyclist and has won many gold medals. His cycling dreams all started when he ‘stole’ his brother’s bike!
In Bolton, Jason grew up with his parents and his brother Craig. At the age of three, he ‘stole’ his brother’s bike and taught himself to ride (eventually he gave the bike back!) as soon as that happened he was struck by his future!

Jason went to Mount St. Joseph’s school. This is where he first figured out how fun team sports were, liking football, cricket and tennis. Another of Jason’s hobbies was playing the guitar.

Jason won the team sprint in the 2005 junior championships for team GB and went to the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics winning 6 gold medals and 1 silver.

In his youth, he was so good he qualified for London 2012 where he won 2 gold medals, 1 silver and 0 bronze! Straight afterwards he began dating Laura Trott, a fellow team GB cyclist. Jason was so determined he went to Rio 2016 winning 4 more gold, 0 silver and 0 bronze.

Whilst busy cycling for team GB, Jason married Laura Trott (a fellow team GB cyclist!) on the 24th September 2016 and announced they’ll be having a baby on the 14th February 2017.

Jason’s life will be more joyful with a first baby but will we see him at Tokyo 2020? Will he wear gold? We’ll have to find out!

Judo Taster

April 4th, 2017

The Hawks were very lucky to take part in a judo taster session at school. Mr Maidment, who teaches judo, generously offered a day of his time to give every class a chance to experience a new sport. He taught the children some of the history, vocabulary, basic skills and respect involved and everyone really enjoyed having a go. There were lots of games for everyone to play and Mr Maidment and Soni performed some demonstrations of the more advanced skills to the amazement of all the spectators. It was a very informative and enjoyable session the children now have a much better understanding of judo and recognise whether it is a sport that may become part of their healthy life in the future. A full gallery of pictures are on the school website.
