How to grow your sunflower
The children have planted a sunflower and watched it grow over the last few weeks and now it’s time to take it home. We would love to see how your sunflower is growing through the Tapestry app! Here are some tips to help you along the way:
1. In early June dig a hole and plant your sunflower outside in a sunny place with no weeds in the soil.
2. Keep watered when dry.
3. In July-September they will grow tall (probably taller than your grown ups!) so support the flowers with sticks or canes.
4. Take lots of pictures to see the progress!
Please remember that once your child is 5 you need to start paying for them to have milk in school, if they want it.
Planting sunflowers in F2. We can't wait to see them grow!
The children in F2 have been reading “Superworm” and learning all about the people who help us. We were lucky enough to have a fire engine come to school to tell us all about their job. The children were fantastic and so excited!
'The Bog Baby' woodland hunt
Improving our ball skills!
We had a visitor from Derek the Dragon. Derek had lost all his fire powers and the children experimented with different ways they could replace his fire to melt the ice. The Goldfinches came up with lots of ideas, we tried them out and they came up with an amazing solution for Derek.
Look at our new indoor painting wall!
Today we learnt all about flour. We followed instructions on how to make tarts. Thank you to the people who have sent in their 50p donations, which has meant we could make the tarts today.

A stroll around sunny Selston
We went out and about in Selston looking at the different places in our village just like in our class book “Mrs. Vicker’s Knickers”. We saw the post office, doctors, allotments and school and spoke about what these places are for. Thank you to all of the parents volunteers who walked with us and made it possible!
Robin class having fun in Whisper's Woodland- 14.2.19
Robin's made shelters out of their bodies to protect people from the rain.
This week in phonics we have been learning the phonemes: 't' and 'p'
And the tricky words: 'no' and 'go'.
We have had our first Helicopter Story session this week. Helicopter stories are where the children tell their own stories scribed by an adult and then their peers act them out on a stage. This week we acted out a story about turtles caught in a storm and another about a fish who was eaten by a crocodile but then the crocodile was eaten by a shark! We all had so much fun and can't wait until next week when we do it again!
This week in P.E we have been learning to balance and roll objects safely.
Week Ending 28.9.18
In Phonics we have been learning the phonemes 's' and 'a', as well as the tricky word 'the'.
Please remember to attend our phonics meeting on Tuesday 2nd October 9am or 3:30pm to find out more about how phonics is taught at Holly Hill.
In Whisper's Woodland we collected natural objects to collage Elmer in lots of different colours 27.9.18
Today we had our first P.E experience. The children really enjoyed it.
