Welcome to Hawk Class!
Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse all of the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera in our gallery page!
Be sure to return soon as we regularly update our pages.
The first ever camp out on the school field was a huge success! The children (and adults) had a wonderful time trying out archery, building dens and making some Native American headdresses. Playing hide and seek and sardines in the woods at twilight was a particular highlight and we may have given some people quite a fright with our authentic war cry!
This event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our dedicated staff who gave up their time and a full night’s sleep. A big thank you to Mrs Cameron, Mrs Duffield, Mr Clark, Mr Cattermole, Miss Bush, Mrs Frost and Mrs Rutterford for their support. We’d also like to say a big thank you to all the parents and carers for their help, enthusiasm and tents!
We hope you enjoy looking at some photos from the night.

We hope you all had a lovely break over Easter. The first two weeks of term have simply flown by! Our topic this term is called The Wild West. We will begin by looking at Native American life. Each week we plan to study a different tribe: considering where and how they lived. We will move on to investigating the impact the British had when they arrived in search of land and gold. Please do read our curriculum newsletter (see below) for more detailed information about this exciting topic!
To run alongside our topic, we have also updated our home learning menu. There are lots of great ideas for some extra learning but we're always happy for children to come up with their own ideas too! Please see below and remember that children should return spellings once a week (Friday is fine) and complete at least one three star challenge.
Following on from the success of Forest Schools we are hoping to hold an overnight camp on the school field. We are currently investigating logistics and will soon be able to provide you with more information. Watch this space!
We hope that you are looking forward to the rest of the summer term as much as we are!
