Our Nursery and Reception pupils had some very special visitors this week! As part of our topic on people who help us, Nottinghamshire Police paid us a visit to tell us all about what it’s like being a police officer. The children even got to try on parts of their uniform and go inside the police van – what an exciting afternoon!

The Friends of Hollygirt organised a fun ‘neon’ disco for our Junior School. Miss Nissan, our lovely Spanish teacher, is also a fully qualified fitness instructor certified in Zumba® Kids. We had a great time dancing and playing games.

A round-up of this year’s Christmas activities, featuring performances and readings from our Carol Service, musical numbers from our Junior School productions, highlights from the staff panto and a Christmas message from our Head Dr. Barsham.

World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. Did you know that spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success?

As well as promoting reading and sharing stories yesterday, we also took the opportunity to dress up. You will spot lots of Mr Men and Little Miss characters. Fabulous!

Happy World Book Day 📚

This morning in assembly, Junior School pupils took part in Mr Men Disco Dough with Miss Nisan and Senior School pupils turned a potato into a fictional character with Mrs Thornton! It’s great to see so many children (and teachers) dressed up for the occasion today. We will post a selection of photographs for you tomorrow so make sure to send them in to your child’s class teacher.

It’s Pancake Day! So, why did people in France eat their pancakes 2 weeks ago? 🤔

Shrove Tuesday is celebrated around the world but in France, pancakes and crepês are not served today. Instead, they’re eaten as part of La Chandeleur (Candlemas) celebrations, 40 days after Christmas on 2nd February. Mrs Brimblecombe asked pupils to have a go at making their own crêpes. We love Ffion’s French flag inspired crêpe!

Last week in school, pupils in Nursery enjoyed trying pancakes with lots of different toppings.

All pupils and staff at Hollygirt were invited to tune into Miss Nisan’s Feel Good Friday on Microsoft Teams this morning. We feel great after starting the morning with some movement and dance!

Happy Friday, everyone! We hope you have a wonderful half term holiday.

Mrs Scott set pupils in Reception an ICE CHALLENGE 🧊! We were asked to recycle an old container and go out into the garden or park to collect natural materials like twigs and leaves. We then popped our gatherings into the container and filled it with water. Adi added some berries to make it colourful! We put our container into the freezer until it froze solid and then moved it outside. Mia-Bella had the clever idea of hanging hers on a tree! While our containers were outside, we talked about how and why they were melting and what we saw as it was happening.

At school yesterday, pupils in Nursery had fun writing their names in the snow!
