This morning, children from Kraken class in Year 4/5, presented their assembly on dragons, including their work on the book & film – “How to Train Your Dragon!”
They showed examples of their work, explained the features of their amazing creatures and described their appearances and where their mythical beasts live!
The assembly also included a humourous appearance by a fierce dragon who was headed off by spear-wielding defenders, and a makaton inspired performance of a popular Dragon themed song! Children also demonstrated their work in Maths, designing a dragon training area too!
Well done to Miss Kempton, Miss Brenton and all of Kraken class for a super assembly! Leave a comment below to let us know what you thought of the Dragon-Kraken-Assembly this morning!
Today is sadly the last day for Rose the cook, working at our school after nearly 3 years working at our school. Endless roast potatoes, pizzas, rolls and wonderful meals have been carefully cooked by Rose, as she retires from our school today.
The hall was filled with the smell of cooking as during the assembly, the school presented flowers and chocolates to Rose to thank her for her work in Holbrook’s kitchen.
We wish her a relaxing and enjoyable retirement and hope that she enjoys the Easter break too.
This evening, children could take part in an amazing Easter Craft event. Children could make Easter cards, flowers, cakes, draw pictures and even design feather creatures!

“I loved having a feather fight” (Chaya A Yr5)
Halfway through, the children all ate pizza, hot dogs and drinks. This was one of the best parts of the evening! The hall was a bit messy – just like the home of Stig of the Dump! Thank you to all of the parents who helped at the event too, it was a great success.

Year 3 were delighted to be crowned winners in the Bug Club reading challenge. As a reward, Penguins were thrown a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. What a party it was! The children spent the afternoon enjoying a picnic in the class and didn’t even save any food for their teachers! 😦
This week saw a celebration packed assembly with children across the school using their learning behaviours to improve their work…
Good learners were awarded certificates in assembly for collaboration, stickability and hard work in lessons across the curriculum. This included work in Maths, reading on Gothic Horror stories, superb work on the Mrs Armitage story, doughnut fractions, using tools to improve independence and even a Colla certificate for Miss Trenchard for her work in Year 6 on their artwork.
