To mark the start of their new topic, Year 5 and 6 received a surprise on Tuesday when they were raided by a Viking warrior named Hrothgar! After capturing the children, Hrothgar brought them to his camp and taught them about Viking weapons, games, gods and even funerals. A fun day was had by all and the children were buzzing with excitement to learn more about Viking life as they prepare to host their very own museum at the end of term.
On 21st October 33 lucky children (and lots of helpers!) enjoyed a trip to Bath. This was sponsored by our business friends Deloitte, to reward some of the children whose behaviour was excellent last school year. We visited the Royal Crescent Museum and had a picnic lunch at the Royal Crescent hotel! Here are some pictures from the day:
We even managed to fit in a quick visit to the park!
We are really pleased that our Holiday Club has been chosen as a 'Netmums Favourite'. Holiday club will be running once more from 27-31 October. You can collect a booking form from the school office or call us if you would like to be added to the email list. You can also download one here.
Day 3: Swimming today was lots of fun if a bit chilly. Ms Ramsay was very impressed how brave everyone was!

Day 2: Everyone got some sleep and after breakfast the dormitory inspectors came round!. The children made rockets and launched them, to see which was the toughest. Karima and Hamda's rocket went almost to the moon!
Everyone is well. We picked lots of blackberries for tea. Many games have been played, many songs sung and much fun has been had by all. We ended the day with a great game of 'The Best Game in the World Ever!!'.
More news tomorrow!
Green noses... versus the red and blue noses...
Day 1: Our first day of camp was beautiful! The weather was lovely and the countryside looked beautiful. We settled in, met our monitors and enjoyed lots of games. The smiles of the children said it all.

On Friday Ms Ramsay, Ms Judge and Ruth were invited to visit the Mansion House for tea with the Lord Mayor, Alastair Watson and his wife Sarah. They had heard about the award we received for our fabulous work helping parents and carers get involved in Reading with children. The city's Director of People, John Readman was also there. We had a lovely afternoon meeting new people and talkign about the great community at Hannah More.
This term we will be running English, Family Learning, Parenting and Cycling as well as continuing our drama group. We also have Outdoor Adventure Play on Tuesdays (open to all children who have an adult with them). Later this month we have two Family Swim sessions and another open-top bus trip (as the last one was so popular!). Look out in the newsletter for full details!
This summer we organised a seris of trips in and around Bristol. Lots of people enjoyed an open-top sightseeing bus ride (we only got a little bit wet!), a small group of us challenged ourselves with an 8-mile canoe adventure on the River Wye and lots more went exploring in the Forest of Dean. Sadly the weather was just too wet for our mountain trip but we will rearrange this for September - along with another bus trip for those people who missed out this time.
We said a sad farewell to our Year 6 children on Tuesday. They did an amazing performing of "Going for Goal" with some beautiful singing including a solo from Kayleigh, and a duet. There were a few tears but we know that they will do themselves proud at their secondary schools.
We are really looking forward to kicking off the new season in style since national property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton offered to sponsor our new football kit!
The sponsorship is part of a wider partnership being established between the school and LSH, whose Cheese Lane offices are less than half a mile away. We are also looking forward to developing our links with LSH in order to bring children closer to the business world.
Peter Musgrove, director of office agency at LSH Bristol, said:
“We all enjoy working in the community and because Hannah More is the closest school to us, we thought it would be a great opportunity to see how we can help to make a difference to the young children.” .
“Sponsoring the football kit is just the first step in this. We hope this support will give the teams a small boost when the new season kicks off.”
