Last night, we held our annual Holbrook Primary Peace Evening for the children and families of Year 6. It was lovely to see so many members of our community come and remember those who died in World War One and Two with us. To celebrate the peace that we enjoy in this country today, we created a circle of light and took part in a minute silence to reflect.
Thank you to everyone who came and made it a very special night.
This week we have been celebrating Bonfire Night and Diwali. We wanted to share our celebrations with our French penpals so we created some acrostic poems and fireworks pictures to send to our partner school.
Year six have been applying their fractions skills to these Tarsia puzzles. What would your strategy be?
We have seen lots of interesting models of Anderson shelters being brought in as part of our homework. Today we even saw an air raid shelter made out of cake!
Today we read a poem called the Night Walker. We responded using pastels and black paper to show what we thought the poem might be about when we first heard it and then explored the deeper meaning of the poem.
We were very excited to receive friendship bracelets and letters from our partner school in France. Merci beaucoup! We are looking forward to sending messages back after the holidays. Bonnes vacances!
