Happy New Year to everyone, I hope you had a peaceful and happy break. We have had a good first week back at school and we're looking forward to an exciting Spring term! 


Class names 

We decided to give our classes names, instead of only having year groups to describe them. School Council decided the category - plants that you can find in Hollickwood Grounds (outside and indoors) - and each class chose a name, they are 

Poppies  Nursery
Sunflowers  Reception
Runner Beans year 1
Sweet Peas year 2
Tulips  year 3
Roses  year 4
Chillies  year 5
Cacti  year 6


We are all trying to remember the names and use them! 


A date for your diary 

On Thursday 6th February we are holding a meeting for all parents and carers. This is an opportunity for you to ask the Senior Leadership Team questions and hear about our plans for taking the school forward. The meeting will be at 6.30pm and there will be refreshments and a crèche. You will receive a letter with more information about this in the near future.
