At the end of the Spring term, School Council and Zuzana, our Learning Mentor, spent time looking at the school rules and decided to refresh them. They brought ideas from each class, looked at rules at other schools and added some of their own. We then took this list and distilled it down into the 'Hollickwood Code', which says

Respect - yourself, others, our environment
Take care - of yourself and others
Try your best - at everything

We think our new rules are easy to remember and will help remind us of the right thing to do.

Welcome back to school after the Spring break. I hope you all a pleasant couple of weeks and that the children are raring to go for what promises to be a busy and exciting summer term.

 

Easter School

Some children in year 6 came to additional classes over the break . They practised their skills in English and Maths and enjoyed their learning. I would like to thank them and their parents for their hard work and support.

It has been a fantastic term at Hollickwood, children have worked really hard and there has been lots of brilliant learning going on. It was great to see so many parents attending Ocean Maths and Come to School Week sessions, and so many of you are active in school life. Staff have worked very hard and are all committed to the on-going improvement of our school. We hope you all have a great break and look forward to seeing you all in the summer term. Thank you for your support.

On Tuesday the Nursery and Reception children planted wheat in the newly dug bed, by the greenhouse. The children, in both classes, spent the week learning about how wheat grows from grain to wheat, is harvested and turned into flour for baking. They read the story of the Little Red Hen, watched film footage of wheat being harvested, baked bread and other activities which captured their interest. It was lovely to link our indoor learning with a real experience in the outdoor area. Please enjoy watching our wheat

The NUT have called a one day strike on Wednesday 26th March. This is part of the ongoing campaign over pay, pensions and conditions.
