A Christmas Carol by Year Five and Six

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Year Five and Six created a ‘play in a day’ with help from SPLATS Entertainment company. We made props, learnt lines and rehearsed four separate scenes of the famous story ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. Some of us took turns in playing the grumpy, old miser Ebenezer Scrooge as he was taken by three spirits to his past, present and future.

All of the teachers were impressed by the maturity and professionalism of the children as they perfected their final performance which they showed to the Year Three and Four students.

They received a huge round of applause and lots of positive praise by all of those who worked with them and watched the play. They all looked amazing in their costumes too!


Explorer Dome in Year 6!

Today (28th September) Year 6 were visited by Explorer Dome who brought their mobile planetarium to teach us about light. We have been learning about light in our science topic and so we were excited to hear that we would be taking part in a workshop where we played with light and dark, colours of light and different types of lights such as UV.

The effects of light amazed us and we were able to see for ourselves how light travels in straight lines using steam. We will take all of our new knowledge about light into our science lessons where we are making periscopes.

The presenters said “The children at Holbrook Primary School have been great, really enthusiastic and they had some good questions about science!”
