Pupils in Year 6 have learnt colours in Spanish in their usual upbeat way!

One of many fantastic things about Hollygirt is that our pupils in the Junior School have access to specialist subject teachers and additional facilities in the Senior School. In Year 6, pupils have specialist subject teachers for Spanish (Miss Nisan), Latin (Mrs Brimblecombe), Music (Miss Purchase), Design Technology (Mrs Cooper Cassady) and Computing (Mr Dilger).

All our Year 6 pupils will be spending a full day in the Senior School tomorrow for our Entrance Day. They will be joined by children from across Nottinghamshire who are considering joining Hollygirt for Year 7 in September 2020.

Pupils in Years 5 and 6 have been learning about cyclic patterns in Music with Miss Purchase. Cyclic patterns are short, repeated patterns which can be heard in music throughout Africa. As a class, we learnt 4 rhythms in a cycle and played them in groups to create this musical piece.

Pupils in Year 4 made Tudor-style pouches as part of our topic work last term. We each designed a shape, picked the material and created a flap to close the pouch. Our new topic is North America. We can’t wait to share with you some snippets of what we get up to throughout the term.

Every year the pupils in Senior School host a Christmas Fair for the pupils in the Junior School, parents and guests. It is always so much fun with a variety of games, stalls, external sellers, the Friends of Hollygirt Christmas hamper raffle and, of course, Santa’s Grotto!

Thank you to everyone who donated goodies for the Friends of Hollygirt Christmas hampers and to those of you who bought raffle tickets! The raffle alone raised £434 for the Friends of Hollygirt’s fund to support extra-curricular areas of the school.

We hope you had chance to visit former pupil, Shanti, in Room 1 who was selling vegan cookies and cupcakes to raise money to sponsor an orphan in India for a year. She raised an impressive £199.45! Well done.

On Friday, we were treated to the Junior School Christmas Productions at St Jude’s church hall.

Pupils in EYFS and KS1 performed ‘Shine Star Shine’. The big star had to show the way to the stable where a special baby had been born – but she just couldn’t shine! In KS2, pupils performed ‘Away in a Spaceship’ where 3 aliens (Zap, Fizz and Bop) set out on mission to find out what Christmas is all about for earthlings.
