Peace Evening 2018


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.


The Home Front


This week in Topic, we are going to be researching what life was like at home during WWII. Use these links to help you.


Today we played RISK. We were separated into different country teams, and were given scenarios to discuss and decide the best action to take to defend or benefit our country.
What did you learn it today’s lesson? How might it have been difficult for world leaders, leading up to the outbreak of WW2?



Last month, Year 6 had a peace evening in school. As part of the evening we created peace doves, bunting and stones to share messages of peace in different languages. Today we hung the doves and bunting up around the school grounds and left the peace stones in the woods for children to find.

See if you can spot our peace messages around school.

Museum of mould experiment


Todays science lesson, year6 are testing some brown bread that we got because we are learning about micro-organisms and mould. By testing the bread we will know the answer to our questions we did in our science books. We are checking what will be the fastest to mould the bread quicker! Some of the options are put the bread in a light and dark cupboard,put some in the fridge and in the classroom and leave the bread outside.We will find our answers in a weeks time.
