This morning, children across the school received awards for their excellent efforts and achievements in learning throughout the curriculum.

Today. children in the Reception class performed their class assembly to the whole school, with an excellent information about their work in school. Image result for supertato

Starfish and Seahorse classes told the school about their work on looking after the duck eggs, as well as their visit to the local farm with Bedenham school too. They also presented their work on SuperPotato – showing us a range of their work and drawings. They explained that the evil pea had stolen their class teddy, which the children then had to use clues to save him!

They also showed us a selection of their superhero outfits, which the Starfish and Seahorses have been wearing in lessons too! They also performed a great song by the “Let’s Go Heroes” which the children sang along to as well.

A brilliant assembly, where children were very brave to speak to the whole school (and their parents) in a very busy school hall. Well done!

NLT_Logo_150Year 4,5 and 6 visited Whitely Shopping Centre for their final event where they were lucky enough to receive their final free book, listen to a mythical story from a fascinating storyteller and tour the projection room at the cinema!

We would like to thank Hana from The National Literacy Trust and Darren from Whitely Shopping centre for arranging the events and for allowing us to be part of the scheme which has enabled the children to feel excited about reading and about choosing books to take home and read.

 

 

The Fabulous Flowering Fairy Garden!

The whole of Y1 have been busy preparing for our fairy garden. They have been designing and making structures and beautiful accessories. They have included fairy houses, mushrooms, gates, ponds, bridges and much more. They have also planted some amazing seeds including chives, radish, cress and some weird wiggly plants???

Please ask them the parts of a plant we have been learning about in topic.

Please come and have a look at the fairy garden in our conservatory.

On Friday 8th June, children from Holbrook’s forces family club, Full Force, went to the Royal Armouries Museum at Fort Nelson, Portsdown Hill near Fareham.

As a continuation of their own ceramic poppy endeavours at school, the children were taken to see the amazing Wave installation which is available to view until the 24th June. This is from the original display, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London created to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the start of World War 1 and every British and Colonial life lost at the Front during the conflict.

The children were able to closely view the poppies, each one unique and handcrafted and the display could be seen from various aspects around the fort. The children then produced their own pastel drawings with a wave theme and will have the opportunity to produce their own felt poppies back at school. Combined with the decorative dragon cannon, ‘hands on’ machine gun, fortified ramparts and series of mysterious underground tunnels, an informative and fun time was had by all.

Next stop, Armed Forces Day on the 29th June.

Today, children across the school celebrated their achievements, with the Reception classes joining us too for their first celebration assembly today.

Great ideas from children in Year 2 with their English writing, while other children were awarded praise for their hard work in sessions supporting other learners along the way. Some children were rewarded for their efforts in classroom, while others celebrated their determination to attend school, even when feeling a little under the weather!

Alongside this, children were praised for their hard work on difficult topics such as time and digital clock work, as well as applying themselves to a range of lessons across the curriculum. Year R children received celebration praise for their kind work with others, not giving up and choosing sensible learning along the way! Year 5 pupils also received praise for their new work using the online “Third Space” Maths learning programme.
