Living Nativity

Thank you to all of the actors and animals in the Living Nativity this afternoon. Year 3 have a fabulous time and were excited that the snow began to fall as we followed the star through the TLC Hub.

Yours oinkily, HGS

We loved writing letters to Tracey, from the British Pig Association, who helped us to obtain our new pigs: Hope and Glory.

We spent some time last week gathering ideas about what makes the school such a good place for the pigs to be, as well as discussing descriptive vocabulary to describe the pigs and their new surroundings.

The results were fantastic and our letters have been sent off to Tracey. Below are a few examples of the letters written:

Year 3 have been working on their co-operation and collaboration skills in the TLC Hub. 

All Aboard

The aim of the game is to get all members of your team to the opposite side using only a rope swing. Your feet are not allowed to touch the ground and all team members must stay on the mound whilst they wait for the rope to be passed back.

The children thoroughly enjoyed taking on the challenge and showed a good first attempt in learning, however neither of the teams succeeded in getting all members of the team across in the allocated time.

Think about what you need to change in order to improve for the next time we try this term.

Prayer session with Father Richard

Year 3 had a prayer sessions with Father Richard this morning to discuss methods of prayer and why people pray.

There were two main methods that the children learnt. The first being the arrow method; a quick, direct message to God which can be done anywhere at any time or day. The second is TSP; Thanks, Sorry and Please.

Outdoor Learning update

Over the past few weeks, Year 3 have become a tremendous gardening work force. 

Firstly, we have begun to landscape our Outdoor Learning Site using bark to create pathways that will absorb the rain. We have also been focusing re-planting 100 baby trees that we won from the Woodland Trust around Holme Grange School. Finally, we took a well-deserved break to observe thousands of tadpoles hatching from their frog spawn protective coating in our school pond.

The Roadside Woods

I go to the Roadside Woods…

…on an adventurous tune-up of my senses.

While we have the freedom to do what we like in this natural wonder, we are happy to like what we do!

The Roadside Woods is an exciting outdoor site for the children in Years 3 & 4. It is a new wonderous aspect that has been introduced to their weekly school curriculum by Mrs Robinson, who passionately advocates the importance of outdoor learning and play at Holme Grange School. Along with Miss Carberry and Mr Rex, the children have been busily building their site with enterprising enthusiasm, since September 2016.
