Today saw Clownfish class from Year 2 perform their class assembly, based on their learning this term. Children from the class spoke about their work on “How Does Your Garden Grow?”
The children spoke about drawing still life images of flowers and plants, growing runner beans in their greenhouses and their writing on Jack and the Beanstalk!

On Tuesday 16 may 2017, Year 6 went on an adventure to Moors Valley Country park. It was an amazing experience and I would defiantly recommend families to go and take their dogs for a walk. We had an amazing, unforgettable day. We learnt how to use a map, did relay races and also took part in orienteering.

This term Year 6 have been learning about an artist called Norval Morriseau.
In art we have been using different materials to draw pictures with wax crayons then we used ink to fill in the empty spaces. You can find more examples of his work by Googling his name. Which is your favourite piece of his work and why – leave a comment below!

Year 6 are due to be visiting Wales on June 5th.
This is going to be for our last school trip at Holbrook we are going Mountain Climbing, Caving and Canoeing. This will be a hair-raising experience for the children who are going to stay in wooden cabins in the mountains!
We will be travelling by mini-buses or coaches and are looking forward to trying different activities and making new friendships along the way.

Year 6 have been learning about a new book called Skellig! Have you listened to your child telling you about their day at school? Telling you about their new topic in English? If not then here is some information about their newly favourite topic. Have you got any idea about the book?
This book has been Year 6’s favourite because it is so mysterious (and confusing in some points). Most of the story is related to real life. Year 6 will be continuing this topic to find out more about the book. They have written pieces of work around this topic already.
Hopefully at the end, we will complete another piece of writing based on what we have discovered through the book, but that will be even better and will have more detail!
If you want to have a read yourself, get the book out of the library! Leave a comment below to say what you think of the book so far!
