Year 5

Year 4 2021-2022

And that's that!

An incredible year has finally come to an end. We've laughed, we've learned and we've grown so much. A new adventure is right around the corner! Thank you to all you wonderful parents for your incredible support throughout the year.


keeping our feet cool in this classroom with trays of water, lovely!


We thoroughly enjoyed making our very own pizza from scratch! We used tomatoes and herbs to make the sauce alongside flour and yoghurt for the dough. We then topped our pizzas with chicken, pepper and much more whilst creating our own pizza boxes!

Judo taster session

We were very lucky to enjoy an opportunity to try our hand at Judo! Our Sensei was very helpful and showed us the basics in a safe and controlled yet fun environment.

Science Week 2022

The theme of our Science Week was water. We learned all about the importance of clean water around the world with a talk from Alan, a speaker from WaterAid. We discussed ways we could help others access clean water. As well as this, we created our own water cycles to observe in class and also learned about salt-water density. We used pipettes to place different colour water on top of each other to create funky patterns!

World Book Day 2022

Year 4 was filled with a wide range of characters this year including Percy Jackson, Amelia Fang and a generous range of Harry Potters! We read books, shared and discussed our favourite novels and even designed our very own book corner for the class.

Ufton Court 2022


Year 4 had an absolutely incredible time at Ufton Court along with the lovely Year 5s. We experienced so many things from circumnavigation, searching for Catholic clues and re-enacting our very own banquet. Here is just a small collection of photos of the entire class, dressed up in their dazzling Tudor outfits.

It was really brilliant to see the children spend some time away from home and demonstrate their independence, confidence and positivity and we are all so proud of them.

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a well rested holiday and enjoyed some quality family time. A quick but very grateful thank you to for all the lovely cards and gifts. We're really looking forward to getting the Spring term started!

Mr Young and Mrs Loyal :)

Merry Christmas!

In the build up to Christmas, we have been very busy making lots of different crafts! We've created our own elf masks, Christmas cards for the less fortunate, tree decorations and also immortalising ourselves as Santa's little helpers! Wishing everyone a safe and festive holiday.

Circuit building

As part of our electricity topic, we created working circuits which included bulbs, buzzers and switches!

YEAR 4 2021

Egyptian Day!


The classroom was transformed into an Egyptian tomb and the children had to complete a series of tasks in order to escape! To begin with, the children created their own Egyptian jewellery before discovering the Hieroglyphic alphabet on a scavenger hunt. After lunch we practised the ancient art of mummification on some very unlucky fruit, before creating our own Egyptian artwork using pastels and pictures of ourselves.



This term, we studied our wonderful capital city. We studied maps, learned about some of the amazing monuments, created leaflets and posters and even discovered the wonders of the Windrush Generation and the Notting Hill carnival.

Year 3 

In Science, we had fun learning about skeletons by building a skeleton and then labelling the different bones.

Year 3 have enjoyed swimming this term and last week they learnt some valuable water safety skills.

Year 3 are thoroughly enjoying their violin lessons this term!

Year 3 have been working hard over lockdown and produced some amazing work - well done everyone!

Great job everyone!

You have all been amazing and have adjusted to remote learning on Teams so well. We love seeing you all, hearing all of your ideas and receiving your assignments. Keep up the fantastic work - we'll be sharing some of it as we continue on our learning journey.


Thank you for your patience as we learn to navigate through Teams together.

Happy New Year!

We hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the holidays. We'd also like to say a big thank you for our generous gifts and for all of your support throughout the school year this far.  With best wishes for the New Year from, Mrs Gibb, Mrs Pasha and Mrs Smith x

A very special visitor came to Hatch Ride Primary School this week. Year 3 were lucky enough to peek inside the outdoor classroom and have a chat with Santa!

As well as Christmas themed drama, sewing and keyrings, Year 3 made their own Christmas photo props this week. They enjoyed posing with their friends and their own art work!

This week in English we have been planning a non-chronological report about Moz the monster. Today we made class posters to share our ideas under the subheadings of: habitat, communication and social skills, exercise, diet and appearance.

Last week we created erupting volcanoes by mixing bicarbonate of soda, vinegar, food colouring and washing up liquid. The children loved watching the chemical reaction!

This week we started out advent calendar and enjoyed decorating the classroom for Christmas with snowflakes, spiral decorations, a class collage tree and paper chains. Thanks to all our very artistic pupils, the classroom looks incredible!

During our current math topic, Mass and Capacity, Year 3 enjoyed using the scales to weigh different objects in the classroom.

In DT, Year 3 enjoyed exploring how to make paper stronger. They will use this knowledge to design and create their own photo frames

Year 2 - 2019/2020

Addition and Subtraction Strategies

Africa Topic Work

Year 2 were very thrilled to be visited by Mr Fleck who talked to the children about his knowledge of Africa, to support their topic work.  The children prepared questions to ask him, and the children learnt so much from his presentation.  Thank you Mr Fleck!

Spring Term - Living Things and Habitats


Year 2 have been enjoying getting outside and starting their new topic of living things and their habitats.  They looked at things that are living, things that have never been alive, and things that were once alive and are now dead.  They have also been looking at habitats, and what makes different habitats suitable for different living things.

Christmas Nativity 2019


All the children in year 1 and year 2 put on a marvellous performance of "Everyone Loves a Baby", wowing us all with their fabulous singing, dancing and acting.  It was everything we needed to get us into the festive spirit!

November 2019


Hatch Ride's naughty elf, Patch, has been misbehaving again!  He stole some of Mrs Green's elves and hid them in different shops in Crowthorne High Street.  The children, using their map reading skills, made their way to the high street, and following his clues found all the elves.

Year 2 were lucky enough to be visited by two of Crowthorne's fabulous fire fighters.  They talked to the children about their jobs, and the children had a chance to try on some of the safety clothes and equipment.  They found it very heavy and uncomfortable to wear!  They were then treated to a tour around the fire engine, and although the weather stayed dry - the playground got very wet as they all had a chance to hold the hose and feel the force of the water coming out.  I think we may have a few budding fire fighters in Year 2.
The children visited the Life Education Bus and learned about how to keep themselves healthy.

Life Education Bus - October 2019

Year 1 - 2018 - 2019

Our trip to Marwell Zoo!

It was a jam packed day and we saw so much! We saw penguins, flamingos, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards, tigers, lemurs and the best of all... MEERKATS! 

We enjoyed having our picnic lunch and our "Animal Habitats" workshop in the afternoon. It was a very busy day but the children were very well behaved and represented Hatch Ride School perfectly!                            



Humans and our senses!

This half term, we have been learning about our bodies and our senses. We have looked closely at our skeletons and the different parts of our bodies. We made skeleton during Welly Wednesday and we used equipment from the classroom to make skeletons inside. We had a sense hunt with Year 2 and Reception during Welly Wednesday. We had to see what we could smell, hear, see and touch in the outdoor area!  We also helped Reception with what senses we need to use when using different equipment and toys in the classroom.


Phonics - Friday 10th May and Thursday 16th May 

We have been working hard on our sounds and blending this half term and we have showing our super skills in every Phonics session. We have been writing real and alien words and playing games to help us with our sounds. We absolutely love Phonics!

Welly Wednesday - 15th May 2019 

We went out to the pond in the woods to explore what minibeasts we could find and become familiar with the area before we go pond dipping next week! We found lots of interesting things outside and some of us tried to build a bug hotel. 

KS1 Athletics Club - Thursday 2nd May

We had a great time at the first Athletics Club for the term today! We were focusing on throwing. We had four activities - throwing bean bags in a hoop, throwing bouncy balls, throwing foam javelin and we had our fitness station. The children got stuck in and we had upbeat music playing on the speaker to keep us motivated! Miss Currie, Mrs Graham and I can't wait until next Thursday where our focus is dribbling! :) 


PE - Thursday 4th April 2019


For Gymnastics today, we put out lots of different equipment including the big bars in the hall! The children were very excited to use them and they were very creative in their movements and shapes when using it. 

They have been practising moving over and under different equipment and thinking about changing directions when they are moving around.


The Year 1 Beatles definitely have the X Factor!

A massive well done to our fabulous performers for our class assembly. I am so proud of their hard work and it was an amazing show! Thank you to all of the parents for helping bring costumes and for practising lines at home.
