Year 6 Production - Shoot That Poison Arrow

We are proud to present the Year 6 Production 2021 to all our families.  We are extremely proud of our Year 6 children who have worked so hard alongside their Teachers and TAs to put together this show and we hope that the memories they have made with us during their last few weeks, and before, will stay with them beyond their years at RHJ.

Year 5 enjoy Activity Week!

Lots of fun was had by all during Year 5 Activity Week, as these photos show!  

Birds of Prey Display at Sutton High School

On Wednesday 30th June, Year 6 was invited to join the pupils of Sutton High School for a Birds of Prey display.  They listened carefully to the handler as he talked about his birds and marvelled at them as he demonstrated their skills.  It was amazing to be so close to the owls and hawks; the children were captivated!  Needless to say, the staff of Sutton High commented very positively on our children's excellent behaviour.  Well done Year 6, you were a credit to RHJ and your teachers loved to see you enjoying the awe and wonder of nature in the heart of Sutton!

The Birds of Prey display show was very cool to watch. From owls to hawks everything was so amazing. My personal favourite was the tawny owl as it was very fluffy and was only 8 weeks old. The man who was handling all of the birds tied a green rope to the owl's leg so he would know that the owl would come back and not fly free while it was learning. I now know that owls with black eyes hunt for food in the night, owls with orange eyes hunt both in day and at night, owls with yellow eyes hunt only in day. 

He got the owls to fly over our heads. It was a bit scary but very cool! Another favourite of mine was an owl that walked really fast like a chicken. It was very cute and funny. We also learnt that an owl has its ears in different places: one, on the sides just above where the human ear would be, and the other one below the mouth. It was very interesting. The hawk was wonderful to watch. We saw how many crows and other birds gathered round to try to attack it when the man let it fly up on the roof. Luckily the hawk did not get hurt and he was our finishing bird.

We had a great time.

On Wednesday 30th June, Year 6 walked to Sutton High School for Girls and were welcomed in through the front gates of the building. Once we had sat down on the school’s lawn, a man explained what he was going to do during his Birds of Prey show, I was thrilled! 

Then, he took out a barn owl which was really pretty. He later moved on to a tawny owl and it was only 8 weeks old! He still had fluff on him seeing as he was a newborn and that made him really adorable! He also squeaked a lot which can be cute on one hand but annoying on the other. With this baby owl, he showed us the training methods he uses for his owls. 

Next, the man brought out a horned owl. It was very majestic and royal-looking. He told us to close our eyes and made it silently swoop over our heads without us hearing it, which I was quite scared about at first but it gradually became really fun! The man also took out an owl which he said was his favourite even though - this part is a bit gross - it removed his whole nail and the man ended up in hospital after that! 

The man also took a falcon out of his van. It was beautiful but sadly he didn’t fly it because he said it would never come back - they’re very independent birds. I remember the man took out a red kite, I think, and, if I remember correctly, she was called Maggie. She was one very graceful bird! 

Overall, this display was fascinating. I learnt a lot and it was very entertaining, too. Well done to all of those elegant birds of prey for performing so well and thank you teachers for the amazing experience! :)


Year 4 Easter Production - March 2021

The Spring Term ended on a high note with the Easter Production, Good News, performed beautifully by the hugely talented children in Year 4.  It was a delight to see the hall and stage in use again with singing and performing led by the Year 4 teachers and TA's who, along with the children, worked hard to put this production together, retelling the story of Easter through news reports!  We are sorry we were not able to invite families into school to watch the production but do enjoy the photos below and we hope to see you in school again soon.
