Our first week back in Hawkstone Class

Well back to the last half term of the summer. This one is a busy one with sports day, a trip to the local art gallery, year 4 multiplication test and so much more.

Well done to Niamh who is our star of the week. 🌟

Niamh was chosen because of the writing. Niamh was able to describe a cave using key vocabulary and senses. Well done 🌟

In comprehension we have been using dictionaries and thesaurus’s to understand the key vocabulary within a text.

As part of our English unit, the children had to write a set of instructions using adverbs of time and imperative verbs. The aim was to draw out our plan and write the instructions using the grammatical features.


well done to all the children who have taken part in the multiplication test so far. We have another week ahead of the test so good luck to all this week.

Dementia Awareness Week

This week we will be taking part in Dementia  Awareness Week

We are well on our way to becoming a ‘Dementai Friendly School’ and the journey so far has been both inspirational and informative.

This week is our Dementia Awareness Week at Holy Trinity and we have several things happening.

  1. We will be selling badges in school for £1, the badge is of a forget -me-not and all money raised will go to Alzheimer’s Society:

A forget-me-not is a small blue flower that represents remembrance.

People with dementia may experience memory loss, among other symptoms. This makes the forget-me-not the perfect flower.

If you would like a badge please speak to your class teacher.

2. We have the official opening of our ‘Garden of Hope’ where we have a special section dedicated to Dementia with a selection of blue flowers and forget-me-nots. We have invited residents from New Fairholme Nursing Home and local companies who have kindly donated to help us officially open the garden. Once opened, we will be inviting parents and carers to visit – Date to be confirmed for parents and carers.

3.  Across the school we will be making homemade blue flower bouquets to take to New Fairholme Nursing Home for the residents to keep. These flowers not only represent Dementia but the growing bond the children have.

Thank you for your continued support and if you have any questions about Dementia or this wonderful charity we are supporting – please visit their website:

A week in Hawkstone Class

We have been very busy week this week and all children have worked exceptionally hard in all areas of the curriculum.

Our unit is Geography is coastal areas of the UK. This week we looked at the effects of erosion and discussed whether we would like to live near a coastal area.

This piece of work is presented beautifully and outlines the different effects of erosion.

In Art this week, we planned our own typography art using a single letter. From this, we will be creating a print art piece and then evaluating it.

The children wrote book reviews on books that they read for pleasure. We discussed the plot, characters, whether it was fiction or non-fiction and who they would reccomend the book to.
