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:

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.
