Autumn Term 2018-2019
Class 4's Remembrance Assembly
9th November 2018 - In order to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1, one of our Governors and local Churchwarden, Mr Barclay, came into school and assisted with Class 4 in presenting a moving and poignant Remembrance Assembly for their parents and the rest of the school. The assembly took form of a 'Drumhead Service', similar to the type of service used when the troops are in the field and have no access to church.
The children of class 4 also developed a 'Field of Thanks', in which they each planted a named cross in thanks of those named on the Hook Roll of Honour who gave their lives, and who also fought and returned.
A Book of Memories holds pictures and details of members of successive Class 4 families who serviced in the Armed Forces, which includes civilian services such as Land Army and Merchant Navy.
Mrs Sue Walker produced a list of 96 names from the parish of Hook who served during WW1, and this will be displayed in our school.
We would like to say a big 'thank you' to the Humberside Police Band for their help in lending us the drums needed to create the drumhead for the service.
They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
Nor in the years condem.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them

Class 2's Visit to John Bull Rock Factory
25th September 2018 - We had an amazing time on our class trip this Autumn term. We became a real life Willy Wonka and made our own rock and chocolate lollies! We saw how all of the factory workers made sweets and biscuits. The machines were HUGE and so loud. We saw sweets being wrapped up and go into boxes ready to be shipped off all around the country.
After the tour, we played in 'Candy Kingdom'! It was so much fun, we pretended we were in 'Wonka Land' and everything was made out of sweets! We climbed on 'marshmallows' (steps) up to the river of jam and custard (slide), and went all the way down to the apple sauce (green mats). We were all exhausted after running around, the journey back to school was very quiet!
We cannot wait to continue lots of exciting activities based on our trip!

Class 6's Primary Futures Visit to Goole Academy
18th September 2018 - The children from Year 6 around the Goole cluster gathered together for a truly inspiring event arranged by the Heads in conjunction with Primary Futures, an organisation which aims to build aspirations for the future amongst our primary aged children.
The children initially were introduced to a group of 6 volunteers and invited to ask questions which might give clues as to the job. We then had a small amount of time to see if we could correctly guess the volunteers professions before the grand reveal!
We were close on 3, out of the 6 but the remaining 3 where quite a surprise. The children thoroughly enjoyed their morning which left them all talking about their hopes and dreams for the future and the clear message that it's all there for the taking if 'you want it enough'.
Class 3's Drama Workshop
11th September 2018 - To start our new topic of Dreams we were very lucky to have a drama company come and work with us for the day. We created our own dreamworld where we made individual characters and places and built stories around them. We absolutely loved this and came up with lots of imaginative ideas. It ignited our creativity and helped us to feel confident as Class Threes very quickly! We are planning to use what we did during the day to help us with our work.
SUMMER TERM 2018
Goole Times Teacher of the Year 2018 Result!
We are so excited to reveal that...
Mr Tutty is Goole Times' Teacher of the Year 2018!
The Goole Times visited us last week to surprise Mr Tutty with the award and some cupcakes for Class 2! Well done Mr Tutty! It's an amazing achievement to be awarded this in your first year of teaching, and Class 2 have been very lucky to share it with you!
We'd like to take this opportunity to say that Hook are exceptionally lucky to have such a wonderful and dedicated teaching staff across all our classes, supported by equally dedicated and talented TAs! We are so grateful for the time and effort put in by all, often going above and beyond to ensure the children receive the best education possible.
On 27th June, Class 2 held a Miracles Assembly at St Mary's Church. The children all did so well remembering their lines and re-enacted three biblical miracles in front of parents and the whole school.
Goodbye, Mrs Forrest!
On 13th April we said goodbye to one of our popular and long-serving Teaching Assistants, Mrs Forrest, who is relocating to the Durham area. Not only will Mrs Forrest be missed for her wonderful personality, but her amazing artistic talents were responsible for many of the incredible and imaginative displays throughout the school. In her honour, we held a secret art competition The Sue Forrest Award for Outstanding Art, with the theme 'Spring'. We asked Mrs Forrest to judge the winners on her last day of working at Hook.

Beth Dobbin - Inspiring Children of Today to be the Champions of Tomorrow
We were thrilled to welcome Beth Dobbin to our school on Thursday, 15th March. Beth is a star of athletics, having competed for Scotland (her dad is Scottish!) at the Loughborough International over the 200m and 4x400m. She has also competed for Scotland at Cardiff and Belfast Internationals over 100m, 200m and 4x100m relays. Her aim for 2018 is to make the team for the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast. The required qualification standard is 23.30, so as it stands she's only 0.01 seconds away from it and is awaiting to hear if she has been selected!
After putting the children through their paces with interval training, Beth gave a talk in assembly about her sporting career and how we can live a healthy lifestyle. The children had an opportunity to ask her questions and those who raised sponsor monies were given awards. Those children who individually raised over £35 each were invited to have a instant photo taken with Beth!
The total of the sponsorship raised will be announced shortly but we are so proud of the efforts made, it looks like it is going to be an amazing amount!
