Year 1 had an extremely successful trip to RHS Wisley last week. Thank you to our parent helpers for joining us on what was a   lovely day out. Joshua said “I loved the coach and the glasshouse where there was a rainforest”. Avi said “I loved the coach and planting the tradescantia”.

It will soon be time for Year R to go on their first school trip to the Gordon Brown Centre, payments and lunch options can be placed using your Parentmail app. Tracksuit and other uniform orders can also be placed via Parentmail. Good Luck to the runners, joggers and walkers taking part in the Hook Fun Run this weekend. We would love to celebrate the children’s achievements if they would like to bring their medals into school on Monday to show and tell.

We will be having a favourites day menu on Thursday 19th May with choices of a Chicken Hotdog or Vegetarian Hotdog with baked beans or peas and wedges. Dessert will be chocolate sponge and chocolate sauce. A reminder that the Pabulum menu no longer has a “meat free Monday”.

We would like to extend a special Hook Infant School welcome to our new children and their families from Ukraine who will be joining us next week. Your children have been decorating the school with sunflower pictures to greet them.
