A huge well done to all of the children that represented Hillocks in the year 5/6 Cross Country yesterday! They were brilliant! We were extremely proud of their positive attitudes, resilience and teamwork. All of the children supported each other from beginning to end!

Breaking News!


In Year 3/4 something strange has happened. Wednesday 27th September was not like any ordinary day; a dragon nest appeared in Miss Gayfer’s classroom…

CIMG6081 We have been reading lots of information about dragons which have come directly from the Herpetological Society (the society which concerns lizard welfare). This has included being literacy detectives and identifying different species of dragons, which special infrared cameras have detected  on our playground!




Please come and take a look at our nest!
