Good Work

Thank you so much for your contributions to Padlet! Here are some of our favourite bits:-

Class R Archie B for reading his books and Charlie B for making a beautiful backpack with his craft materials!

Class 1 – Bodhi C for his AMAZING world war tank which was made out of cardboard boxes to commemorate VE Day, and Ivy B for her wonderful Andy Warhol inspired artwork!

Class 2 – Mrs Bucknall would like to put forward ALL of Class 2 children (and their parents) for their fantastic Toilet Roll challenge. It has been the highlight of Mrs Bucknall’s lockdown and she’s still smiling about it now!

Class 3 Liam W for making a menacing great white shark out of recycled materials and creating a colourful factfile, and Minnie R for her super sea turtle collage made from a variety of materials! Mrs Bainton would like to say that ALL the children who have posted have amazed her with the standard of work in the things they’ve posted this week!

Class 4 Jacob C for his human body labelling activity, Elijah W for his Parrotfish fact file and Joel W for his graph to represent sea water temperatures in Newquay!

Class 5Ethan R for his very scientific surface friction experiment and Fran D for her fantastic work for VE Day!

Class 6 Tobi E and Alfie J for their wonderful Britto-inspired artwork and their scrumptious summer dishes (summer pavlova and three course, Star Wars themed delight!)

Legs Leetham!

Message from Mrs Ainley

So we arrive at the end of the seventh week of lockdown. Hopefully, you all got a message this week with the link to watch the special video the adults wanted to make for you. We wanted you to know just how much we are missing you and how we are looking forward to being together again.


You will have heard us talk about our Hook family, and may think that is a strange thing to say. No mum or dad (and certainly no grandma or grandads!) in our family, but we do have lots of children and lots of caring adults. We are now preparing to welcome a new class of children into our family and hope that we get a proper chance to say goodbye to our year 6 children. Hopefully, after Sunday we will know a little more about how we can ensure this. Remember that even once you are at your new school, you will still have a special place at Hook. One of my favourite things is to see past pupils coming back into school to find their picture on the wall of fame. 
I think this quote explains how we feel perfectly:
“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what. “
