Every fortnight, not only do the children change seats, we also reveal the outstanding learner skills and behaviour we will be focusing on. I am always watching the two secret students very closely to see if they pass their mission!
Most recently, Summer received the prize and with it, a whole class mega dojo for beginning tasks straight away! Unfortunately,...
I have been very impressed with the quality of the homework this half term. As well as completing their online maths (and now SPaG) homework the children have also been set the task of learning spellings, carrying out comprehension activities and their Tudor grid.
The children have been moving their swimmers through the lanes to win prizes and great homework...
On Thursday 20th October the rugby team went to Springside primary to play in a tournament.
They managed to beat Old Hall but lost to Springside, however, due to the number of tries scored, Holcombe Brook still finished top of their group.
In the semi-finals, they faced Guardian Angels in what was a close encounter. 2-1 was the final score...to Holcombe...
Thank you to one of our pupils in Niagara Falls who used her homework PowerPoint to teach the rest of the class about clothing worn in Tudor times and how this was very different for rich and poor people. Also, thank you to our volunteer Tudor clothing models!
The homework produced during our Tudor topic has been fantastic! From wonderful Tudor menus, jewellery and board games to creative castles and torture equipment, the standard really has been superb. Well done!
The children in Niagara Falls enjoyed making their own 'lava lamps' for science day - they carried out a fair test (with different sized bottles as the variable) and investigated how long it took for the blobs to form. They worked brilliantly together and enjoyed discussing their predictions and findings.
Today was Science Day at Holcombe Brook. In our assembly we tried to make a chemical reaction and it worked! The mixture went EVERYWHERE! Then we all went back to our classrooms to carry on the science fun, here are some pictures.
We had a great time learning about Gravity in our science lesson and experimenting with different materials. We made paper helicopters and used scientific vocabulary to explain why one material worked better than another. We had some great explanations.
