Hothfield Cross Country Runners

Our Hothfield Cross Country Runners in years 4, 5 and 6 represented school on Wednesday 12th February at Cliffe Castle.

Looking at the photographs it is very clear that hard work and determination is very evident.

What adjectives would you use to describe the event / emotions and atmosphere to this event.

Hothfield Junior School is looking forward to our very own Cross Country event on Wednesday 19th March at 4pm. This event is OPEN TO ALL Hothfield Junior School pupils. If you are interested please go and see Miss Woffenden.


Which Christian creative story are you investigating 4W?

My Friend Walter

We thought about the different parts of the story and what has happened since Bess met Walter Raleigh in the Tower of London. We drew pictures using pastels and pencils to show our ideas and feelings.







Our book of the week…


6JC recommend Nelly the Monster Sitter by Kes Gray. It is funny, exciting and good for both boys and girls. There are
different monsters in each book, all with creative names such as Huffaluks and Thermits.

This week’s SPOTS…


Year 4 football at Oakbank


On Wednesday afternoon Hothfield’s year 4 football team took part in a competition at Oakbank School.

Hothfield played 5 matches, winning 4 and losing 1.

These results meant that Hothfield finished joint top of the group so have progressed to the Keighley area finals next Wednesday.

If you were involved, it would be great if you could produce a brief report of one of our matches in the comments section.


Working together to make our writing even better…
