Y4 at Hooke Court Day 1!

24/11/2021

 Evening 

 

Well it's been a busy evening! We have explored the life of a  Roman soldier - our photos show that Mr Stafford and Miss Bissell really do make the most imposing Roman soldiers! (see our pics!) We also designed and made mosaics, which look rather good and we enjoyed a good chat with each other about our day as we made them. We then chilled out in front of a DVD, caught up on some Horrible Histories and got ourselves sorted out for bed. We were all tucked in by a member of staff and, after a few last minute toilet trips, everyone is almost almost asleep - here's hoping for a peaceful night! We are hoping you can see some photos in the album; we are aiming for photos of everyone but, as I'm sure you can imagine, we are rather busy! Please bear with us and we'll get there.  

 

Afternoon

Hi all. It’s been a busy afternoon. We had lunch, made our beds, and got cracking on some team building activities really quickly. We had to get everyone to one side of a ‘river’ using only plastic mats and arrange ourselves in date of birth order on planks of wood (without using our voices!). We've practised ball skills and put together giant jigsaw puzzles as a team. So far it’s been a great afternoon and the children have all done themselves proud with helping and supporting each other. Already they are proving themselves to be kind, understanding and empathetic friends. We hope to upload some pics soon. The WiFi isn’t as strong here as at school so they may take a while to upload and, of course, we are rather busy with lots of Y4 children who are our priority! Please be patient with us, we will get there! We are all okay though and having a fabulous time. (We are rather surprised that it is 'only' roughly the end of the normal school day, already it feels like we've been here for ages!)
