Recent School trips
The Year 6’s and a group of Year 5’s went to the Brecon Beacons in South Wales to the Hampshire and Sir John Cass Mountain Centre for their school journey, to participate in five days of outdoor pursuits including late night walking; team building; orienteering; mountain climbing; kayaking and caving. It was fun getting to know each other and of course the best thing was sleeping together in dormitories. On the final night we all came together and had a disco.
Everyone learnt how to work as a team and achieved goals, overcoming personal challenges. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and would like to thank everyone who made this trip possible, especially the Sir John Cass Foundation who provided a grant towards the trip.
Year 4 have been on a residential trip to Cardfields in Essex
Transforming our learning environment
Every space is a learning opportunity at Hungerford! As you know, our staff had training last half term led by professor Stephen Heppell (http://www.heppell.net/) and we’ve already started making the changes… There will lots of exciting changes happening in classrooms.
Well Done Jordior!
We are very proud to share that Jordior in Year 6 has won a Gold Award in the Islington in Bloom Poster Competition. A record number of 522 entries were received for this competition including a number of fantastic posters from Hungerford School.
Jordior won one of of three prizes awarded taking out the Best Poster in the ten and over category which she received from the Mayor of Islington at a special ceremony on Monday evening.
Workshop at The Globe
We looked at the themes of air, water, fire and wind and how they are expressed in the Tempest. We then partook in an acting workshop, where we experimented with the characters of Prospero and Caliban. We asked ourselves: Should Prospero be the leader of the island? Everyone participated and Leo played the piano to accompany the words. It was an enjoyable day and it provided a flying start to the new term.
We shared in assembly, how hard the children had worked on their Shakespeare project. Everyone worked so hard and it was amazing to see so many talented children on stage.
