Archery Competition

Some of Hockney Class took part in an Archery competition at Viney Hill Activity Centre on Monday 26th April.

The children performed really well, stepping out of their comfort zone to try a new sport! Well done all!

Farewell Mrs Miller

It was the final day of term before the Easter holidays and sadly we had to say goodbye to Mrs Miller, who has been working as Hockney Class TA for the past 5 years. Over that time, Mrs Miller has been an invaluable member of the class, helping with Residentials, Leavers Services and SATs. During the morning, we held a surprise assembly, where we showed her the videos below!

Thank you for everything you have done and good luck in your new job Mrs Miller, you will be truly missed!
