Now that the Family Cookery course has come to an end, we are very excited to put on more courses in the future. Some parents have expressed an interest in first aid, book making, computing and photography so watch this space!
We would like to say a big thank you and well done to all the parents who attended and completed the Family Learning Cookery course. It was great to celebrate your achievements with your child last week in our Holly Hill Heroes assembly.
We look forward to putting on other courses in the future.
Thank you for your continued support.
Autumn Term 1
Thank you to all the people that have attended our events so far this year. Feedback on your comments will be coming soon.
National Care Home Day!
As well as our work to enagage more with parents, we at Holly Hill are also committed to strengthening links within our local communtiy. Therefore, it was a real treat when Wren Hall invited Year 4 and 5 to take part in a 'Family Fun Day' in order to celebrate National Care Home Day.
There was a World Cup theme, which linked to the topic being studied back at school. The children were able to meet and engage with the staff and residents and everyone had a fantastic time! Below are some pictures from the day...

A great meeting which explained targets really well.
The handouts of slides from the presentation were very useful, especially as there was lots of information given.
The transparency regarding how the child’s progress is monitored is really helpful.
You also said that you would like to be regularly kept updated with changes in the progress of your child. We will be sending home regular updates in addition to the usual parents' evenings.

Excellent. Great to have a creche, so that parents have a chance to ask questions.
The teachers inspired us with confidence.
These kind of meetings are excellent and essential for parents to understand 'jargon' associated with teaching.
Great introduction ans explanation. I am sure it will help parents feel more able to approach teachers in the future.
I think the teachers on the playground is a real improvement.
Really nice to be welcomed into the school and given information.
