4W recommend The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis because we find it intriguing and imaginative. What else can you tell us about it, 4W?

Hothfielders support Sport Relief

Hothfield School Council organised a non-uniform day and a ’10 laps for Sport Relief’ event to raise money for Sport Relief on Tuesday.  We raised £351!  We were able to meet Harry and Amy from Look North as they cycled through Silsden on their fund-raising bike ride and hand over the money.  Well done Hothfielders.

This week’s ‘Thunk’.

Each week I will upload a ‘Thunk’ to our blog.

Spend some time talking about the Thunk with a friend or family member, perhaps during a family meal or when you are on a journey in the car.

And don’t forget to share your opinion in the comments section.

There are no right and wrong answers to these questions, but make sure you give a reason with your answer.

This week’s Thunk:

If you borrowed a million pounds, would it make you a millionaire?
