William Porter, Max Nicholls, Eliza Porter, Imogen Taylor, Tane Wallis, Oscar Simmonds, Victoria Harris and Emily Outten were named as Sporting Champions. Year 3 & Year 4 enjoyed two sessions of golf run by Chipping Norton Golf Club. Some Year 6 pupils spoke with their penpals in Sweden.  Year 2 walked around the village as part of their Big Question ‘What would Katie Morag find exciting about Hook Norton?’ looking particularly at different buildings, and Year 1 had a fantastic day at Banbury Museum yesterday looking at toys for their Big Question ‘Do we have better toys than our Grandparents did?’.

We had a very successful Health & Safety audit, an annual check by Oxfordshire County Council staff.

Year 6 Residential Visit : Next week, Year 6’s will be spending the week at Yenworthy Lodge in Devon, one of Oxfordshire County Council’s Outdoor Education Centres, (now leaving at 10am due to adverse weather conditions – children should arrive at school at normal time) where they will be taking part in exciting team-building activities and challenges, with Mrs Peters, Mrs Robertson and Mr Newman. Mrs Inglis will be joining Mrs White in Year 4 for the week.
