On Wednesday 27th March Hawk Owl Class held a bake sale to raise money to sponsor a penguin. It was fabulous to see so much effort going in to the children and their families baking cakes, biscuits and cookies to raise the money needed to sponsor an emperor penguin. The class raised a fantastic £138.58!
The children in Hawk owl class were lucky to attend a concert by the Philharmonic Orchestra, at The Anvil, Basingstoke. The concert had been specifically designed for children and the children were captivated by the music and musicians.
Finding out about Antarctica
The class was lucky to welcome, Mr Patrick Holligan, back to school to talk to them about his journeys to Antarctica whilst he was a professor at Southampton Oceanography Centre. The children were entertained by the recounts of his voyages and enjoyed seeing the photos showing everything he had seen whilst he was there. The children were then able to demonstrate everything they had learnt in class and ask questions.
