Easter Gym Camp 2016
During the Easter break, a group of children attended the first Haselworth Gym Camp, a morning of gym-based activities, with an opportunity to earn a British Gymnastics Badge. Six of the children achieved the entry-level 8 badge, and another five also passed level 7 badge. Vanessa King and Mrs Millard were very impressed by the attitude of the children, who all showed great concentration, as well as clearing enjoying themselves.
Andy Briggs Author Visit
On Thursday 17th March the author Andy Briggs came to visit Haselworth School. He was promoting his Tarzan trilogy and managed to get the children enthusiastic about writing! He introduced himself in a whole school assembly and even played the trailer for the new Tarzan film.
Andy worked with all the children in KS2 (year 3, 4, 5, 6) in small writers workshops. He got them all writing their own adventure stories about things that interested them. He even sat and had lunch with the children; they asked lots of questions about how to become writers and he even showed them how to eat a banana properly!
At the end of a busy, exciting day many of the children bought one of his books and had it signed!
