Year 6 recently enjoyed taking part in the Junior Citizen event. We learnt about how to stay safe in and around the community and enjoyed exploring scenarios such as being in abandoned houses, discovering a fire and swimming in the sea. We now feel really confident about leaving Hunters Hall, ready for the adventures of secondary school and the responsibilities that come with growing up.
Book Swap event held in school.
Our Tombola raised £128.
Thank you to everybody who supported this event and a special thank you to the organsing team led by Mrs Kemp.
World Peace Day 2016
Hunters Hall Primary School's whole school community was invited to attend a special event to raise awareness and provide support for world peace on Wednesday 21st September.
A talented team of teachers organised and ran a thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking celebration. Children from across the school read peace poems, which they had written. The whole school sang, "No Wars will stop us singing!" and the choir sang, "Unity".
The event finished with a peace parade made up of origami doves and peace windmills.
Remember that, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
Hunters Hall Euro 2016
As Euro 2016 kicked off last Friday, Hunters Hall Euro 2016 commenced with the "Czech Republic" (3B), "Croatia" (3F) and "Sweden" (3P) competing against one another. Each match played ended with a score of 0-0 despite some excellent shots on target and some equally fantastic saves. However penalites loomed; leading to a play-off between 3B and 3P, with 3P scoring a magnificent goal which takes them into the semi-final to be played on the 8th July 2016.
On Friday 17th June , it was the turn of "Romania" (5C), "England" (5R) and "Ukraine" (5T) to show each other their brilliant football skills. After standing for their national anthems, the teams each put up a fight for their place into the semi-finals, however it was Ukraine's day and they gracefully won the group stage.
There are two more weeks until the semi-final, I am sure that Year Four and Year Six are having sleepless nights in the run up to their matches.

Great Britain Triathlete, Mark Threlfall, visits Hunters Hall.
