Newsletter Issue 21
This week we travelled to Holy Trinity School in East Finchley for a netball match. The first two quarters were very evenly contested and the play was of a high quality: at half time the score was 2-2. Unfortunately it was Holy Trinity who were able to raise their game in the second half and they pulled away to run out winners by 6 goals to our 2. Well played team!
WORLD BOOK DAY -

More details will follow about the different events we will be holding during Literacy Week. However, on Thursday 7th March it is World Book Day and for this we are asking the children to dress up. Our theme this year is Myths and Legends. We look forward to seeing all your amazing costumes.
Mental Health Check
Being mentally healthy is as important as being physically healthy. 'Mental Health is about about ordinary living –about physical and emotional well being, the capacity to live a full and creative life and the flexibility to deal with its ups and downs' Peter Wilson. At Hollickwood we support our children in understanding their emotions and how they can overcome difficulties and challenges.
New research released by Place2Be for Children’s Mental Health Week 2019 (4-10 February) showed that 56% of children say they worry all the time about something. Children and young people who usually get less than the recommended 9 hours sleep on a school night are more likely to feel that worries get in the way of school work. Looking after our physical health effects our mental health because they are so closely linked. Enjoy the break by doing something active, relaxing and for yourself! We would love to hear about all the ways you have looked after your body inside and out during the half term holidays!
