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!
Wow, Hollygirt in the snow looks spectacular!
Mrs Keyworth encouraged her class to go outside and enjoy the snow. We’ve seen some great photos from Year 6 pupils including Travis’ excellent snow friend and Milena’s garden guardian!
Meanwhile in school, pupils in the Junior School key worker group had great fun playing in the snow at break time again. This time with even more snow! A couple of doors down in the White House garden, Mrs Morgan and Miss Lau had fun creating a snowman called Holly. We hope she’s still there tomorrow for registration!
