Marathon Kids Update

One week into our marathon kids challenge and a challenging week it has been with the weather. Despite losing the opportunity to run on a couple of days the children have really stepped up to the plate. To date as a school we have run an astonishing 2705 kilometres in one week. This is the equivalent to sixty four marathons as a school. This is not in PE lessons but the children adding to their daily exercise by running and walking in their lunchtimes. Several of the children have also added to their totals by taking part in the local park run at the weekend. It would be amazing if we can match this fantastic achievement by fundraising with our sponsorship forms that you should all now have at home.

Thank you for all the support you have been giving to the children.

Sporting Endeavours By Hill View Staff And Parents

We are always proud to highlight the success of our pupils at Hill View but we are also pleased to recognise some recent successes by our staff and parents.

Congratulations to Mrs West for her amazing achievement in recently completing the London Marathon in an excellent time of four hours thirteen minutes. She has also raised £2,520 for the charity Stickler Syndrome UK.

A mountainous effort was made by Mrs Mayfield from Key Stage One with her recent ascent of Mount Snowdon in Wales. She made the ascent up the tough Pyg Trail and then down the Llanberis Pass.

Dancing success for Mrs.Cronin who competed in Strictly Banbury scooping a third, second, two first places and the people’s choice award in addition to helping raise almost £12,000 for three charities. Mrs Cronin has also recently qualified as an Athletics official at Banbury Harriers.

Congratulations to staff members Mrs Dee, Mrs Morgan, Mrs McHale, Mrs Baughan, Mrs Paynton and Beth and Lauren former Hill View students who took part in the Lets Walk in the Dark 10k sponsored walk on the evening of Saturday 13th May for the Lets Play project in Banbury.

They completed the walk in 1hr 50mins and as a team raised £128 for the charity.

It is important for us to highlight to the children that a healthy active lifestyle is not just about school time but also about taking an active part in the wider community now and throughout their lifetime.

If you have any similar family sporting success that you would be happy for us to celebrate then please let us know.

Freestyle Martial Arts Visit Hill View

On Tuesday the 16th May 2017 we are being treated to a visit by Freestyle Martial Arts Club who will be running introductory sessions to all children from Year Two to Year Six.

The sessions have been led by their Chief Instructor Mr. Manning ably assisted by Mr. Whyman and they have delivered a half hour introduction to martial arts and a few of the skills involved. All of the children have been very attentive and have enjoyed all of the sessions.

Freestyle Martial Arts are also offering Hill View School pupils an exclusive offer to visit the club free of charge. They will be running the free taster sessions on Friday 19th, Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd May 2017 between 6.00pm and 6.40 pm. Each child will bring home a leaflet that includes all of the details and a discount voucher for a 1 month free trial plus a free uniform for £25.

This is a great opportunity to try a new sporting activity and all the children will benefit from improved confidence, discipline, respect, coordination and self- control. One of our children who took up this opportunity two years ago is now a fully qualified black belt.

Hill View School Launch Marathon Kids

On Monday 15th May 2017 we launched our Hill View Marathon Kids Project with an assembly to all KS1 and KS2 children led by a marathon kids leader.

The Marathon Kids Project is an initiative brought forward from the charity Kids Run Free.

The concept is simple – pupils are given the opportunity to complete a full marathon (42.2km/26.2 miles) over the duration of the school year by running laps of a measured course during their lunch break. The idea is that we are giving your children the chance to become healthy by choosing to run and participate in extra physical activity to that provided during normal PE lessons. All pupils that run the Marathon Kids programme will receive a certificate stating the distance achieved at the end of the programme.

After the assembly we held running sessions on the school field and were blessed by the weather with the rain stopping just in time. The children were very enthusiastic and ran with fun and great pleasure.

Marathon Kids will be taking place every day ‘weather permitting’ on the school field. As such, if your child wishes to take part in the challenge of running a marathon they will need suitable running shoes with them on each day.

Please encourage your children to take part and to make that healthy choice to run.

For further information regarding the Marathon Kids Project and the charity Kids Run Free please visit www.kidsrunfree.co.uk

New Books!

Thank you for supporting our recent Book Fair. As a result we have been able to buy these books to add into our AR Library. The children will love having new titles to read!

Team Hill View Year 3/4 Tennis Competition

On Thursday 11th May 2017 our year three and four tennis team attending the Banbury Area tennis competition held at Banbury Academy. Our team of Joshua B, David G, Joe B, Alfie B, Keeley M, Hadiqah K, Javaria H and Maja M were all seeded one to eight and then played against the same seeded player from the other five schools present.

The children all took part in a warm up with the student leaders from Banbury Academy and then the matches got under way. The games were played on a half tennis court and using the red dot development tennis balls. The standard of tennis on display was a credit to all the children and the games were all played in a fun and sporting atmosphere.

The scoring for the competition was based on how many points each player won so closely contested games were all important even if you lost in the end.

None of our children have played competitive tennis outside of school and to see how they have developed in their skills over the last couple of years was very pleasing to see.

Following the completion of all the matches the children got into their own groups of mixed schools and just played their own fun games. This was great to see and the children were quickly making new friends.

The scores were then announced and Team Hill View achieved an amazing third place. Congratulations to all the children who took part and thank you to the staff and student leaders at Banbury Academy for an excellent event.

Netball Match Report

On Wednesday 3rd May, a squad of 8 netballers played St John’s Priory School in an extremely nail-biting match! The game started and the teams were very well matched. It looked like it was going to be close! St John’s scored the first goal which was closely followed by Hill View making it 1 – 1 after the first quarter. St John’s came back fighting and managed another goal giving them a 2 – 1 lead. However, Hill View did not let that stop them. With great defending from Ted P and Brittany the ball was back to the attackers, and Harley I scored again! As Hill View’s confidence and determination grew, the match got particularly interesting. Hill View kept attacking and working exceptionally well as a team, meaning they took the final score to 4 – 2!

Well done to Ted P, Nia P, Nicole C, Louisa T, Grace B, Harley I, Sophie D and Brittany. Very well played by all! Miss Wythe.

Team Hill View Sitting Volleyball Game

On Thursday 27th April 2017 Team Hill View had two new firsts. Our first game with Frank Wise School and our first game of sitting volleyball.

Our team of Alfie B, Aisha K, Keeley M, Andy A, Grayson L, Nicholas S, Lana S and Lucie W greeted the children from Frank Wise as they arrived in their minibus and made them welcome.

We played the game in the lower hall using a gym bench as a net, a light volleyball and five players on each team. Sitting on the ground is a great leveller and makes a difficult game like volleyball even more challenging.

The game was played in a great spirit and was fun for everyone involved. There were lots of smiles and laughter and a good bit of skilful play on show by everyone.

After the game the children went outside and played games together with the ball and forged new friendships.

This was a great experience for everyone involved and hopefully the start of a good sporting relationship with Frank Wise School.

A snap from Rob's Instagram reveals the former Keeping Up with the Kardashian star's sleeve matches up with the one in the picture.remy hair extensions Back in September the reclusive star, 28, had sparked dating rumors with Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran as he shared a snap of her on his Instagram account. He wrote alongside the close-up photo of the model - which immediately sparked thousands of 'likes' from his Instagram followers: 'I like when she send me pictures.' Previously he had famously dated The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon from 2007 to 2009, before a messy breakup which would later prompt Twitter feuds between the star and Rob's sisters. Kardashian, who's shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet, is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. After the photo emerged, E! News confirmed that the pair were in fact dating, though noted things are complicated. A source has told the publication that there is 'concern' about the pairing, with the insider feeling that Blac is 'preying' on Rob 'during a weak time.' It is also a concern that Blac is only using Rob to get back at Kylie Jenner, since the two have been feuding since the E! star got together with her ex - and father of her son - Tyga. The source explained how Blac and Rob got together, despite the latter becoming reclusive over the past year. Making changes: Rob (pictured with mother Kris Jenner in 2013) has recently shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet and is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians

'She and Rob have known each other for a while and she had been staying in touch,' the insider shared with E! News. In October Blac was rumored to be dating Ciara's ex Future, even showing off a tattoo she had gotten of his name on Instagram - though the rapper denied the relationship. He took to Twitter, posting: 'Single & focusing on what makes me happy,' then - as if to further deny any connection to Chyna - followed it up with: 'U kno I dnt f**k wit no rumors...' And prior to that the entrepreneur was linked to pro boxer J'Leon Love, with whom she reportedly split in September, as reported by TMZ.perruques cheveux naturels Small world: Blac Chyna was previously engaged to Tyga - currently dating Rob's little sister Kylie Jenner (pictured in 2014) A part of the group: Before Kylie and Tyga got together, Blac Chyna was very close with Kim Kardashian, and even starred in the family's E! reality series (pictured filming with Kim, Kourtney, and Scott Disick in 2013) Blac most famously dated Tyga - currently dating Rob's younger sister Kylie - from November 2011 to late 2014, and the two were engaged for less than two years. The exes share three-year-old son King Cairo Stevenson. Though they officially went public after Kylie's 18th birthday this past August, Kylie and Tyga certainly had not been shy about being in public together, fueling dating rumors since October 2014. This has caused a lot of tension between Blac, Tyga - real name Micheal Ray Stevenson - and Kylie, extending even to her older sisters. Kylie and Blac Chyna - real name Angela Renée White - had been involved in a feud for months, with the pair regularly lashing out at each other on social media. The way they were: The model was best friends with Kylie's sister Kim before the 18-year-old began dating her ex Tyga (pictured in 2014 with ex Tyga, Kim and husband Kanye West) Moving on: Not long after their split in 2014 Tyga was spotted out with Kylie, prompting dating rumors - they have since gone public following the star's 18th birthday in August (seen here at Olivier Rousteing's birthday in October) The Lashed founder came under fire in April as she shared a series of texts that allegedly showed her ex Tyga was trying to reconcile their relationship. Then Kylie reportedly jumped to Twitter to diss the star - and her claims - writing: 'I wish a certain someone would hop off already. It's really stupid to stoop down to a childish level over male attention, get over it please.' However, the Lip Kit by Kylie founder made sure fans knew she was staying out of it, as she later clarified the issue to her followers. Kylie posted: 'I didn't know u could change the font size on tweets now #fake (sic),' as it was proved that her snarky post was actually a fake. Shade: Tyga's former love Blac took aim at the youngest sibling of Kim Kardashian by mocking Kylie's signature full pout with an Instagram photo of herself wearing huge fake wax lips And it continues: Then in August the mother-of-one took to Instagram to share a series of snaps, showcasing her hot bod in a bright pink bikini, seemingly hitting at her ex as she captioned one sultry image: 'I know u Miss me'

It's been the week from hell for Taylor Swift after Kim Kardashian leaked a video online of the singer giving consent to husband Kanye West to use her name in his latest Famous single. And as she continues to hid out in her Queensland, Gold Coast hotel, boyfriend Tom Hiddleston has continued to venture out and mingle with members of the public. Earlier this week, the 35-year-old posed for photos with young fans as he ventured out to buy dinner. Scroll down for video Fan favourite: Tom Hiddleston posed for photos with young fans on the Queensland Gold Coast earlier this week In a photo, shared by Crystal Towler on Instagram, the Thor star beamed with joy as he wrapped his arms around two children for the snap. He seemed more than happy to stop for the picture, leaving the mother of the two children gushing with excitement.perruques cheveux Crystal captioned the moment 'What an absolute gentleman,' before taking to the comments section to speak highly of their encounter with the Hollywood star. Eating in: The 35-year-old was wondering around the popular tourist destination to purchase dinner for him and Taylor as she hid out in their luxury hotel Unaware: Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked 'He was so so sweeetttt!!! She [Taylor] finally has found a guy that is worthy of her kind little heart,' she began to state. She went on to clarify that 'he was getting them some take away dinner.'

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Crystal for comment. Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked. Kim started the social media war when she dropped an audiovisual bomb on Sunday by releasing a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did. Caught in the act? Kim released a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did Taylor reacted soon after by tweeting: 'That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet, a screengrab of the pre-prepared note'. She claimed her issue was the fact that Kanye called her a 'b*tch', and not that he said he was considering having sex with her — as in the recording she can be heard describing that 'as a compliment'. 'Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b***h' in his song?' the Bad Blood hitmaker wrote. Earlier in the month, Tom had fans in an absolute frenzy while out and about on the Gold Coast. After brushing shoulder's with fans, the actor left 11-year-old fan Bella Terlich crying tears of joy upon meeting her. Shake It Off: Taylor reacted soon after by tweeting: 'That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet, a screengrab of the pre-prepared note' Down Under: Taylor and Tom arrived on the Gold Coast earlier this month He and Taylor arrived in Queensland just over two weeks ago, and while the Shake It Off singer has been keeping a low profile the British star has been heading out and about regularly. The actor is on the Gold Coast to film his latest Marvel superhero movie, Thor: Ragnarok.lace front wigs The film is slated for release in November 2017, and it is believed to draw some of its inspiration from the Planet Hulk comic book story line, where the infuriated green antihero takes over a planet after being beamed into space.

After Thursday night's horrific terror attack in Nice, concerns were raised for the cast and crew of Fifty Shades of Grey, who were filming nearby. Yet Dakota Johnson had moved away from the horrors of the south of France as she headed to Paris to continue filming the second film in the franchise on Monday. The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms.

Boosting her already long legs, the brunette beauty sported chic double strap flatforms which added inches to her height. Injecting a superstar touch into the ensemble, Dakota clutched an envy-inducing Hermes Birkin handbag, complete with gold fastenings and a detachable long strap. Coordinating again with the black accents in her ensemble was her over-sized sunglasses which shielded the majority of her face.cosplay wigs Stylish: The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms Initially wearing her hair pulled back in a low-key ponytail, Dakota, who stars opposite Jamie Dornan playing Christian Grey in the movie, later allowed loose locks to cascade over her shoulders. Her trademark long-length fringe was tickling her lashes as she appeared to sport minimal make-up from beneath her glamorous eyewear. The cast arrived in Paris after a stint of filming in south of France, where they were seen taking a dip in the shores before terror struck nearby. A short way from the set, the tragic Bastille Day terror attack in Nice took place, which saw the death of 84 people including 10 children.

The devastating events saw the film's producer Dana Brunetti move to reassure fans that everyone involved with the project was safe. Passing on the message from the whole production team, he wrote on Twitter: 'From production: 'Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay. ''Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound. Thanks for everyone's messages and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world.'
