Year 6 Spring Term Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

After a packed last couple of weeks at school, I hope that you all had a restful and happy Christmas and that your children are looking forward to being back in school and starting the new term with enthusiasm.

The children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 performed fantastically in their nativity show at the end of last term, they all joined together to make a great end to our Autumn term. There was plenty of talent to be seen at the first “Holbrook’s Got Talent Show” too and those who performed did so with enthusiasm. Well done to all of those who took part, you impressed everyone watching.

There is plenty of other talent on show around the school as well; the Year 2 NASA space buggies in the library and the Year 6 clay faces art gallery demonstrate the wide range of talents which your children impress us with on a day to day basis.

This term, we look forward to welcoming another Olympic athlete to inspire the children and some cross School activities with our Federated school, Bedenham. Look out for more details in your child’s Year group blog.

Happy New Year to you!

Keeping Safe with Xmas Tech…

Following liaison with the police we have been asked to continue to inform parents and carers of the resources available to ensure that Christmas technology is sufficiently protected to safeguard children and prevent children accessing or receiving inappropriate content…

I am sure that lots of our children will have received Christmas technology (smart phones / tablet PCs and laptops etc) over the festive break and with this in mind, the Police have asked schools across the county to help parents to access support materials for topics such as adding parental controls

‘Full Force’ Poppy making!

 

At Holbrook our forces children have created their own support group and callDSCN1699ed it ‘Full Force’. Over the last few weeks they have been very busy making poppies out of clay and painting them. The children were inspired by the ‘Tower of London’ poppies.

 

We have been very lucky to have the support of ‘Get Crafty’ in Rowner who have helped to fire our poppies in their kiln to make Image result for get crafty gosportthem stronger and donated the red paint.

 

The children have proudly created their own memorial gardenDSCN1709 in the pond area at school. Where they have placed their clay poppies amongst the seeds that we previously planted. We are looking forward to seeing them sprout around the clay poppies sometime next year.

If you are passing by the pond area, please take the time to have a little look at their fantastic creations. Well done ‘Full Force’ you have done an amazing job on your poppies!!

On Friday 15th December, Year six hosted their own art gallery. They spent the morning sculpting clay faces of Ancient Greek Gods and monsters, such as Medusa and Cyclops.

In the afternoon, the children showed the Year Three children around, talking about the art skills they have recently learnt. When the parents and carers arrived, the children taught them sketching and clay skills which the adults thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, it was a successful art day! Well done Year Six.
