Physical Education at Hillocks!

Physical Education at Hillocks!

At Hillocks, we are so lucky because we have Mark Dobb & Miss Dunn helping to deliver the PE curriculum across all key stages and organising lots of extra-curricular activities.

All children should have their PE kit in school at all times.

PE Kit at Hillocks consists of:

  • Shorts or Jogging bottoms

  • T-shirt/Polo

  • Plimsolls/trainers

  • A suitable sports jumper/jacket

Children should NOT wear any jewellery during PE lessons and should be removed before your child comes to school (staff are not permitted to put earrings in for children).

In the Summer we often increase the amount of outdoor PE taught, it is therefore so important that children apply and wear sun cream to protect them. 

KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity of swimming lessons during the year, your children will given a letter to confirm when their lessons are. Swimming takes place at Lammas Leisure Centre on Tuesday afternoons.

If your child is unable to take part in PE lessons for medical reasons then a letter should be sent with them to school.

Mother’s Day Sweet Peas

Hopefully by now your sweet peas should be growing well and looking beautiful, but can we please remind you that the ‘peas’ are NOT edible. They are poisonous and children should not be encourgaed to touch and eat them.

Thank you

F2 Summer Term

For our final topic this year we will are going to explore fairy stories and traditional tales through the topic ‘Will you read me a story?’

Every week we will look at a different traditional tale, starting with The Three Little Pigs. We will look at the different characters, what they do, and how stories start and end. We will decide who is a good character and who is bad.  Also, we will look at the words that are repeated throughout stories, this will encourage children to retell, read and write their own stories.

If you have any stories that are special to your family we would love you to share them with us.

Welcome back to the final half term of the year. This half term we are going to be continuing our topic of The Enchanted Woodland and we started this off with a launch day. We made some African Rain Shakers, animal masks and learnt about our native flowers including drawing pictures of them. We are all really looking forward to our trip in July to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

Wild FlowersNewsletter2 – The Enchanted Woodland

Welcome back!

Welcome back to our final half term of the year! We hope you all had a lovely half term break and are ready for the exciting weeks ahead of us.

We had a very busy last half term following our topic ‘Let it Grow’. We took part in lots of activities involving listening and retelling stories, planting and growing, observing, painting and printing, cooking and many, many more. A few of the activities are listed below, talk to your children about them to find out more!

  • Stories we read – The Tiny Seed, Jack and the Beanstalk, Oliver’s Vegetables and Jasper’s Beanstalk.
  • We grew our own cress, then made egg sandwiches and ate them.
  • We planted our own magic beans and watched them grow. They are now planted in the garden  – I wonder if we’ll have a giant come to visit us?
  • We looked closely at different vegetables, drew them, painted them, chopped them and made soup from them. A display all about this work will be going in somewhere in school shortly – can you spot where it is?!
  • We ran our own garden center role play area.
  • We planted some flowers in pots to brighten up our garden.

We also had a very special week celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan. We made crowns and decorations for the classroom, watched the wedding of Prince William and Kate to see what a grand Royal wedding looks like, had a miniature Windsor set up on on small world area with the castle, church, well wishers and the wedding party all there and finally we had a special tea party at the end of the week complete with our very own wedding cake and cucumber sandwiches!

This half term we will be going on a Camping Adventure. We will be using our camping role play area, finding out about the seasons, going on animal hunts and using our Forest School site again on Fridays. We cant wait!!






The children enjoyed using their map skills to design their own theme park linking to ‘Billionaire Boy’. They also wrote some fabulous persuasive writing to go up on our new display in school.
