Hatton has enjoyed a wonderfully wet and windy weekend!
Friday evening was buzzing in the house with over fifty children staying for 'film and tuck' night.
Saturday, the house was on show for the inaugural 'Family Forces Day' where we celebrated Monkton's link with the armed services by inviting forces families to a reception and lunch. It was a great opportunity to catch up with parents and introduce new families to Hatton House. All the boarders worked hard to get their dormitories tidy and the visiting families were very impressed with what they saw and the positive atmosphere in the House.
All the matches were called off in the afternoon due to the horrendous weather conditions so it gave the boarders a chance to enjoy the inflatable in the swimming pool and watch England get back to winning ways in the rugby.
Last night it was all about snuggling up with a duvet in front of a film and listen to the wind and rain howling outside.
Sunday morning thankfully saw a break in the weather and we all headed out in the minibuses to enjoy a game of lazer tag in a woodland near Chippenham.
We hope you enjoy the film that Miss Stoelinga has put together and gives you an idea of what we got up to.
On the way home we stopped off at Lacock Abbey for a picnic lunch and we headed back to Hatton before the heavens opened again. Before a wonderful roast supper there was the chance to write a letter home, go for a swim or finish any prep that needed doing before tomorrow.
Thank you to Mr Bray for his help in running the trip to the lazer tag.

Mr Hutchinson came in to do 'the hub' and round up what has been a very exciting weekend.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday at pick up before half term.
