Good Learners Assembly ~ Friday 10th November

As part of our Good Learners assembly this week, reading certificates were presented to children who had read at least 25 times over the recent half-term. Well done to these children and a big thank you to all the people at home who have been supporting reading at home!

Good learners were presented for their excellent gymnastics work, great team work in lessons (using our Colla skills) and super efforts across the curriculum. Others received awards for their efforts in writing (producing a very entertaining letter to new neighbours!) and extending their thinking in Maths too.

Year 1 Newsletter – Autumn 2

We have been having a bang, pop, whizz of a time in Angelfish these last few weeks. We have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and using some fantastic language to describe our fireworks in English. Mr Charman lit a bonfire for us and we had sparklers to help us develop our word banks in class.

Today, we have just started learning about Little Red Riding Hood. We found some wolf footprints in Jellyfish class and Granny asleep in her house. She was a little scared but we made her feel safe.


In science we are learning all about materials and their properties. Can you look around your house and find out what materials different objects are made of? We have also got a need science lab in our role play area to help us get into the role of a scientist. Please ask us what we have learnt about wood, metal, plastic and glass.


We are looking forward to…….CHRISTMAS, yay. We have started to learn the songs for our KS1 performance and are very excited to show you. Watch this space for more updates from Angelfish.

‘Full Force’ Planting Poppy Seeds

Our lunchtime club for service children, ‘Full Force’ met up on Friday to welcome a special visitor.
Ruth Wilson from Gosport Discovery Centre came into school to talk to the children about the origin of poppies and how we wear poppies to commemorate service men and women that have been killed in all conflicts to date.

Ruth brought with her some poppy seeds of the ‘Papaver rhoeas’ variety and the children were able to plant these seeds in the pond area where we hope to create our own memorial garden. We look forward to seeing them successfully grow next spring.
We will keep you updated on our rememberance garden as it develops.

This morning, the school celebrated good learners from across Holbrook, who have shown excellent learning skills in lessons, including the school’s transformers of Resilience, Collaboration, Stickability and Knowing Yourself.

Certificates were presented to children for continuing to stick at their writing, working collaboratively for a joint writing outcome and researching topics outside of school in their own time. Other children received certificates for their careful thinking skills, explaining their thoughts and for their superb work with their phonics. Two children received certificates for their excellent poetry and others were awarded certificates for their success in the recent table tennis ball, game, macrotournament.
