On Friday 6th November we celebrated Bonfire Night in our Outdoor Learning session. We joined up with the Community Learning group and spent the afternoon in our Forest Skills area. Mr Kelley led the session and we lit our own fires, cooked on the fire pit, toasted marshmallows and filled our tummies with hot dogs and jacket potatoes. To finish off the session we had sparkling time with sparklers!
As it was Election Day Hollywood used democratic voting to vote for the new Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Eco Committee. Lots of staff and pupils read the manifestos and cast their vote. The results of the secret ballot will be announced soon!
Year 2 decided to vote democratically to name the butterflies that are developing in their cocoons in 2BP. The winning names were Rainbow, Poppe, Ryanair, Fluttershy and Katie Rosy.
We are helping to make the world better with a sweater! Friday 12th December will be ‘Wear a Christmas Jumper to School day.’ We are raising money for Save the Children. Children are invited to wear a Christmas jumper (bought or made!) and bring a donation of £1 into school to support the work that Save the Children do at home and abroad.
This week at Hollywood, we are commemorating the centenary of World War 1.
Each class is taking part in their own way, researching and learning about how the sacrifices made in both World Wars have impacted on our lives today.
Keep checking the HollyBlogs to see what we have been doing.
