Harvest Celebration Assembly!

This morning children across the school celebrated Harvest Celebration assembly, with visitors from our local family-church in the nearby No automatic alt text available.community.

The hall tables were filled with a selection of wonderful food, tins and a huge bread centrepiece, which will be donated to a local charity food bank.

The children heard the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 people, using a small amount of food and sharing this with our friends… children then reflected on how they can help people around them and the great support that a small gift (like tins for the foodbank) can make a huge difference to the lives of many families.

For parents who would like to find out more about the Caring Hands Project, or to get involved with the food bank, you can access their Facebook page @ https://en-gb.facebook.com/FamilyChurchBridgemary/

Mr Moloney then presented and lead a fabulous makaton display of “Love Is Easy” with the children joining in along the way!

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Harvest celebration – it is hugely appreciated!

Housepoints this week were won by: Attenborough (Green) = 469 points

Hawking (Red) = 413 points

Aderin-Pocock (Blue) = 359 points

Turing (Yellow) = 316 points

Halloween Disco!

A rather deathly spectacle at Holbrook this evening, as children from across the school took part in the Halloween disco! As you can see from the pictures, the costumes were exceptional – a huge thank you to all of the parents (and special FX artists!) who have created such gruesome creations! This made the evening all the more spooky and entertaining!

What a great start to a spooky Friday 13th tomorrow! Again, a huge thank you to the PTA for supporting and decorating the event and to the many families who have clearly spent a long time preparing amazing costumes for the children!

Leave a comment below, to let us know what you thought of the disco! Happy Halloween!
