Hogarth had a great world book day!
Call to Action
Last week our school councillors were involved in a regional SC meeting where they discussed global issues threatening the planet.
They also participated in several activities exploring how media can play a huge part in raising awareness, educating the public to help them see how they can get involved and help save the planet from further damage. Children were asked to explore how these global issues, and highlight how they impact on their local communities.
They were asked to choose a topic, and create a ‘call to action’ video to promote action in schools.
The videos and photos are below.
The whole school walked up to our local church to celebrate Christingle. We learnt about the symbolism of the Christingle and what it means to Christians.
We were delighted to receive this letter from Nick Gibb today congratulating us on our achievement in the phonics screening test 2018. We are very proud of all our children and staff here at Hogarth.
Sports Hall Athletics Tournament
Well done to year 5 and year 6 who participated in the LEAD sports hall athletics tournament yesterday - fantastic achievements at individual and team level
well done team Hogarth!
We collected tins and produce at our harvest festival this week. The food is going to our local food bank to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We are extremely thankful to our generous families for supporting this cause. Well done team Hogarth!
Hogarth School Council
Hogarth School Council met for the first time this week. We had lots to talk about!
We have got off to an active start here at Hogarth.
We loved the training session with Nottingham Rugby Club and Y1,2 and 3 will be having TAG rugby with the coaches and after school club session this term with Sam.
We were so excited to have a coaching session from the Nottingham Wildcats Basketball team too, all our children will have six weeks of professional coaching this year from the professional team at Nottingham Wildcats.
Our ducklings are growing and now have names!
LEAD Running Event
Our running club participated in the LEAD running event today - well done to everyone that took part!
They have hatched!
We have been eagerly awaiting the duck eggs to hatch and we have four so far. We have enjoyed the awe and wonder of new life and amazed at how they enjoyed their first swim.
Year 5 and Year 6 went to visit the Gurdwara in Nottingham City Centre as part of our RE curriculum.
The children were respectful of other worshipers and asked questions about the building and religious artefacts showing how interested to learn they were too. They learnt about how Sihks worship and the 5 Ks. They also visited the Langar.
When we returned to school the conversation was all about the interesting information they had learnt.
Thank you Hogarth, real ambassadors for the school.
We really enjoyed the stay and play in nursery this week. "It was good to learn how our children learn and see what they enjoy once in the the nursery session" said a parent.
Year Three and Four started the summer term participating in the STEM day, we tested towers to be hurricane proof, robot driving and our physicality against timers and sensors. A great start to the term. We were able to use our science and technology skills to learn and have fun!
As part of our school ethos to EMPOWER and ACHIEVE, the school council members participated in a days training led by St Johns Ambulance and they all ACHIEVED a pass and are now qualified in student first aid. Well done everyone, you were a credit to the school and are EMPOWERED. You will be able to use the skills you have learnt not only in school but in life!
