Good Learners Assembly ~ 17th November

On Children in Need Day, children across the school were

presented with awards for their excellent work and achievements over the past week. This included Maths work using money and Lego, children who had written detailed examples in their Guided Reading and for children who had improved their work across several subjects.

Other children were awarded Colla awards, for their teamwork and collaboration together. This was fantastic to see and a great reminder of what can achieved by working with a friend on a tricky task! Some children in Year 1 also celebrated their WANTED posters for the wolf from Red Riding Hood! A huge well done to all of the children who received awards today!

The school then sang “True Colours” with Makaton signing along the way – led by Mrs Sivier… Well done to children who are remembering all of the different signing that Mr Moloney and Mrs Sivier are working with us on during singing assembly.

Others received awards for their efforts in writing (producing a very entertaining letter to new neighbours!) and extending their thinking in Maths too.

Deji Tobias Visits Holbrook

What an amazing treat! Last term, Holbrook children met the British sprinter Deji Tobias in a whole school assembly and then had a class P.E lesson with him in the sunshine.

Children and staff alike were impressed with his dedication, sense of humour and down to earth vibe which resulted in a positive and inspirational experience for all. Deji currently competes in both the 100m and 200m sprints and talked about his likes and dislikes about his training regime and races.
