At Holbrook, Everyone Learns to be Their Best…
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!
“My favourite was designing an egg – it looked sparkly” (By Blake R Yr3)
“I really liked putting glitter on my hands!” (Karen H Yr6)
“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.
“We liked making the eggs covered in little feathers because they looked like fluffy monsters” (Alex B Kraken).

Maths Morning Thursday 30th March 2017
Who knew we had so many clever mathematicians at Holbrook Primary School? Well, we certainly found out during our Maths morning on Thursday.
The children had hand written some very neat invitations asking parents and carers to come in and share ‘how we do maths these days’…. and what a turnout we had!
Some of the teachers spent a very quick half hour showing the parents the different strategies and methods we use to help children understand maths and number system and why we teach their children these methods. I think I could say quite confidently that some parents went away understanding much more how it has changed since we were at school and how they can help their children more at home. Many, many thanks for the show of support – we were slightly surprised but thrilled to see so many of you.
Once this had finished, the parents made their way into class and joined their children as part of the lesson. There was a lot of problem solving going on which certainly challenged some of the adults (teachers included) as well as the children. As usual, there was a lot of talk between everyone which is to be expected when discussing problems and hearing the mathematical language being used was an added bonus.
