HCIS Curriculum Evening

Haddenham Community Infant School hosted its annual Curriculum Open Evening on Thursday 12th July.

The evening was an opportunity for children to guide their parents around the school and showcase their learning from the school's curriculum topic of whizz, bang, wallop!

During recent curriculum weeks the children had been immersed in the works and language of Roald Dahl as well as revealing their budding scientific skills through a whole host of exciting experiments.

Although the evening was hot and humid the children didn't hesitate to sing and dance a collection of tracks from box office hit "The Greatest Showman" that they had previously performed for the Over-60s Club.

A fun evening was had by all, complete with a burger van, 'Steelband' style entertainment and the local "Chasers" gin bar for adults plus brightly coloured slimetastic and swampy soft drinks for the children!

Meanwhile, some volunteer scouts got a cooling off in the wet sponge stocks!
