Gold Award & National Fitness Day

As we celebrate achieving our 3rd Gold kitemark award for sport, the whole school joined in the ’10 at 10′ initiative on Wednesday 27th September. The aim was to have children in 10,000 schools being active for 10 minutes, to highlight the benefits of regular exercise – a healthier heart, increased wellbeing and a better quality of life.
As you can see we had a great time!


Comic Relief

Everyone had a lot of fun raising money for a Comic Relief today. We came to school with wacky hair and throughout he day we all encouraged one another to run a mile around school.

World Book Day 2017

We all enjoyed activities based around books and our enjoyment of reading today. It was great to see the children mixing with other age groups to read and listen to their favourite stories. We also enjoyed hearing stories read by different teachers and all came together to share our learning at the end of the day.

Birds of Prey
We would like to thank Cameron and his parents for bringing in
their birds of prey. We enjoyed learning about Storm, the Barn Owl, Chewy and R2D2, the Harris Hawks and Yoda, the Kestrel. They looked amazing flying around the orchard.

Gold Celebration and Sports Relief

We have enjoyed trying out a lot of sporting activities to celebrate our Gold Award and raise money for Sports Relief. We joined in with some old favourites but also some sports we have not tried before. It has been a very exciting few days.
Our Primary Leadership team took our Act of Worship where they told us all about the amazing achievements they have had. First of all our leadership team won the best sports noticeboard. They were praised for the bright colourful look of the board and for how informative it is. Next they told us how they had won t-shirts for being the 1st team leaders to write a sports blog for the schools in our area and for being the best at blogging they won a Sports Day pack for the whole school. Finally they helped us celebrate that Hildenborough School has won the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award.

Following the Assembly we tried Tennis, Judo, Tri-Golf, Yoga and Stoolball.

The staff also challenged the netball team to a High 5 Netball match in front of the whole school. Support was split between the two teams making a fantastic atmosphere as they cheered on their favourite team. The staff did extremely well coming out at the final whistle winning 7 – 6 unfortunately they had to be deducted 2 points for being too tall! so the final score was School team 6, Staff team 5. A big WELL DONE to all who took part. 

Science Week

In science week we did lots of different experiments and investigations. There was one challenge every class carried out The Spaghetti Challenge – Who could build a tower strong enough to hold a small bear?
On Friday we made displays of all of the work from the week and had a Science Fair in the hall for everyone to see.
Science week helped us to persevere and work in teams!

In class children told their classmates why the books they had bought with them were their favourite stories and a little bit about the story.image image








Book reviews were written and shared to encourage other children to read a story they had maybe not thought of reading before.image image









During our Act of Worship children from each class came to the front to tell the rest of the school about one of the Dr Seuss books they had looked at and the activities that followed the story.

food they like to eat and drew pictures
