In September 2022, Harton Academy will be introducing a new PE kit for the new year 6 intake. The kit can be sourced from Bolam Sports, South Shields. Bolam Sports will be coming to the new intake evening in July, where children can be sized for the kit. Further information will be in the Transition booklet which will be sent out to parents later in the term.
Congratulations to Jack in Y6A. We have another Word Millionaire! Jack has really enjoyed reading the Harry Potter books this year as well as lots of non-fiction texts which have helped him achieve this award. Well done!
This year Hadrian’s Wall is celebrating its 1900th anniversary. Years 1 to 6 took part in online workshops delivered by Tyne and Wear Museums as part of their ‘Virtual Hadrian’s Wall Day’.
We are working on a very exciting project in school. We have all been learning about Hadrian’s Wall and every child has made their own ‘fact brick’. We look forward to sharing the finished project with you soon!
Here are some pictures of our bricks. Can you guess what we are building?
Congratulations to Conner (Y6F) and Jack (Y5F) who have become our latest Half Millionaires, reading over 500,000 words this academic year.
Another huge well done to some of the children in Mrs Fawkes’ English group also who have worked so hard on their reading this half term and achieved their points target on Accelerated Reader. Well done everyone!
Check out some of the amazing newspaper articles Y6 have written this week. The Y6 children have loved reading Macbeth this half term and have completed some fantastic pieces of writing including diary entries, letters, play scripts, characters descriptions and even their own version of the witches’ poem and chant.
Congratulations Lily (Y6D) who is now a Word Millionaire. We are so proud of Lily’s wonderful achievement. Lily loves reading and this year she has developed a love for the Harry Potter novels, reading all 7 novels in the space of a few months. She is now reading the “His Dark Materials” series by Philip Pullman. Well done Lily!
On World Book Day we created book profiles of authors who have written series of books. These are going to be displayed in our Accelerated Reader library to promote some of our favourite authors to children who may not have discovered them yet.
We had a great day celebrating World Book Day too. Check out our costumes!
