Skellig – Year 6 English Topic.

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 topicRelated image 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!

Mayor Making – Team Captain’s Visit!

                         Holbrook’s Mayor Making Visit – May 2017

Did you see the Team Captains leave Holbrook? Did you notice our ‘Mayor Bear’ badges? Want to fine out more? Then, just keep on reading!

Why were we going?

Holbrook’s wonderful team captains have been given the experience to watch one of our Gosport Council members to be elected as the Mayor of Gosport. On Wednesday 17th of May 2017, Holbrook’s Team Captains (representing Holbrook) traveled with Bedenham’s Team Captains to watch the Mayor Making ceremony of Mrs Batty. How delightful…

The Ceremony:

It was very rainy by the time we got there! Muddy and wet! We all got wet! Once we entered, we noticed at the back a row of chairs set up for three schools: our federation and another school. In front was two groups, separated with a wide pathway for our future Mayor to walk through. As time went by, more and more people entered and the room was getting crowded. Did I mention the band? While people walked in, a group of music players were playing tunes to occupy the waiting viewers. I had to admit, the wait was pretty boring, but the tunes did lighten me up!

Year 6 Visit Moors Valley Country Park!

On Tuesday 16th May, Year 6 visited Moors Valley Country Park where they took part in an orienteering workshop. The children enjoyed moving around a grid using their own individual maps, not becoming confused about which direction was North and ensuring that they didn’t bump into each other!

They then moved on to reading more complex maps where they were competing against each other to find key spots around the area and to bring back the letters found in order to win! The children were then taken on a forest walk, using their maps to navigate the way. Once at the destination, the children’s map reading skills were put to the test in team relays.

Clay Monster Heads in Year 4/5!

As part of our Foundation topic work, children in Year 4 and 5 made clay pinch-pot monsters. They used clay modelling techniques and tools (as well as slip) to create a monster with various features!

As you can see from the pictures, some were more scary than others, with a range of different body parts.
