Sports Day 2016

This week’s SPOTS. ..

South Craven Cup

Glorious sunshine and glorious football. The annual South Craven Cup at Steeton Primary School didn’t disappoint. 

Our Year 6 boys team drew both of their matches against Steeton and won both of their matches against Eastburn. Lewis G sealed a last gasp victory in our first game with a right footed finish into the bottom corner after a superb Zidane-esque pirouette set him clear. Joe A scored the pick of the bunch in our second win with a thunderous drive into the top corner from distance. Sam B made an exceptional diving save to preserve our clean sheet in the second draw v Steeton. Unfortunately, we finished 2nd on goal difference to Steeton.

Well done Joe A, Lewis G, Sam B, Josh E, Harvey D and Spencer B.

Our Year 6 girls team won all four of their games by scores of 3-2, 3-2, 4-1 and 5-1. The pick of our goals came in our first match against Steeton – Alana sweeping the ball home after an intricate passing move. Rachel S made some tremendous saves in her first ever appearance in goal. Marissa and Scarlet used their strength and skill to dominate the opposition defences and scored goal after goal with tidy finishes. Lola was a rock in defence and midfield – hardly letting a single ball get past her. She scored 4 penalties and a couple of shots from long range. Hothfield were deservedly crowned the champions.

Well done Lola C, Marissa L, Scarlet B, Rachel S and Alana M.

So four years of Hothfield football for these children has come to end, but what a four years it has been. I’m sure we will see your names in sporting lights in the future. Well done all!

Rounders tournament

On Wednesday evening, our Year 5/6 rounders team took part in the Oakbank finals. We played 4 games, winning 1. Mrs. Meakin was exceptionally proud of all our players.

Well done Rachel S, Haris H, Daniel M, Tom W, Oliver W, Sofia K, Harvey H, Chloe H, Sam B and Emily S.

Gears, Levers and Pulleys

Year 5 have been busy investigating gears, levers and pulleys over the last two design technology sessions. Today we had great fun with the Lego sets in order to build simple machines.

What a Performance! Y6 teach us all about Shakespeare…

We so enjoyed Year 6’s Leavers Performance – all about Shakespeare…  The children were so creative and expressive and performed with such a fun spirit.  Our wonderful Year 6s have done Hothfield and themselves proud – well done.

Spotted! – Year 4s on their Habitat Walk


Year 4s were out looking for wildlife habitats on Tuesday when they were spotted by John Liddle with his camera…  Thank you for the lovely photo, John – I bet the Y4s were not the kind of wildlife you were looking for!
