Our Topic this term is
'Time Traveller'

Tick, tock, tick,tock... the hands o the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man.

Find out what happens to our bodies and brains as we grow older, and how do we cope with these changes.

How long does a human baby take to grow inside the womb? Does it take longer than an elephant calf? Or a kitten?

Take a good look at yourself... How has your face changed since you were a baby and how will it change as you grow older? Can you photograph it, change it, age it?

And what would happen if the clock struck 13? In 'Tom's Midnight Garden', he travels to the past. What an adventure! Imagine you could time travel too: where would you go and what would you like to see/ Will you head back to your past or into your future? You decide.

Tick, tock, tick, tock... the hands on the clock never stop!

Den Building

On Thursday, the children of Hockney class and the Year 6s from Walmore Hill had a great time taking part in Den Building.

The children were split up into groups and had to work well as part of a team, creating dens in the nearby Forest.

The children worked really well together and had a great time! Fantastic effort everyone!

Dean Academy Taster Day

On Monday 18th June, the Year 5 children went to Dean Academy for a taster day. They got to take part in Science, Maths and Cooking. The children had a fantastic time and were a true credit to the School.

Sadly, none of the children gave Mr Forster any pizza that they had made. Well done all!


It was a lovely end to the first week back in School, as the Year 6 children from Pillowell, Blakeney and Walmore Hill took part in Battlesports!

The children were split up into two teams, (Red and Blue) with the Red team winning by the narrowest of margins 4-3. After this we had lunch, before venturing up to Beechenhurst, where the children explored the adventure playground and were treated to an ice cream!

The children were superbly behaved and a true joy to take! Well done all!

Three Counties Show

On Friday 15th June, Hockney Class had a special visit to the Three Counties Show. The weather was beautiful and the children had a fantastic time, looking at different farm animals, watching Horse racing, exploring the different stalls and eating Ice cream!

A huge thank you to Caroline and Ingrid, who helped out on the trip! A great time was had by all! Well done!
