Hello! Bonjour! Buongiorno! Guten Tag! Kalimera!
Today is European Day of Languages. This is a day celebrated across Europe on which people celebrate linguistic diversity and think about language learning. This week, each class has chosen a language and had a go at learning some words and phrases in that language. Yesterday we came together on special assemblies to share what we had discovered. We were treated to posters, pictures and photographs as well as songs and demonstrations of how to speak French, German, Italian and Greek. The children all enjoyed the assemblies including ‘Let it go’ in 25 languages! We even discovered that animals speak different languages too thanks to a very clever goldfish, and some dogs!

The children have enjoyed a fantastic last full day in the Lake District and are now toasting marshmallows on the camp fire!
Mrs. Hawkesworth's group spent the day on a hill walk along Gowk Hill and Steel Knots, enjoying the spectatular views.
Many of the other children took part in activities on the lake including canoeing and raft building, then ending up in the warm bath of Lake Ullswater!
Tunnelling and the challenge course developed the children's teamwork skills today and they were all extremely brave.
We are planning to leave the centre at 12pm tomorrow to arrive back at school for 4.30. We will keep you updated via text.

Well done to all the children who took part in the WSAS Cross Country event yesterday evening at Bishop Walsh RC school. The children had to run very far whist competing against over 120 pupils from other Sutton schools. For some children it was the furthest they had ever run!
We are very proud of our children (all of whom were in Year Five) because many of the competitors from the other schools were all a year older from Year Six classes (of course our own Year Six children are all off on holiday!).
WHC showed determination, perseverance and collaboration to make the finish line.
The next Cross Country event will take place in a few weeks’ time with the final two events taking place close to Easter.

Today the children have enjoyed another fantastic day in the lakes. We began the day with morning presentations from two of the groups and then began our day's adventures.
Mrs. Hawkesworth's group went for a canoe today with the intention of rowing back, however due to a certain lack of rowing power they had to 'suffer' being toed back into port!
Miss Greenwood's group went for a hill day, which the children greatly enjoyed - some hoped to see the sea from the height we were at and guessed that it was nearly as high as Mt. Everest - but found out that the mountain was actually only a sixteenth of its height.
Miss Maugham and Miss Johnston's group took part in a hike, which to the delight of their tired legs was only short. Once in the woods they explored, gathered firewood and proudly boiled water for hot chocolate on their own camp fires. After this they canoed back to the centre in the sunshine.
Other activities consisted of gorge walking and climbing.
The children are now enjoying their night time activities before a hot chocolate and bed.
Over and out from Howtown.
