Christmas at Holt House & Carterknowle
We are all preparing for our Christmas celebrations – there is lots going on!

Our traditional Christmas trees have arrived from Whirlow Farm. These are in both school halls and have been decorated by the children - as far as they can reach! They look very beautiful and will be on show until the end of term.

We love to see the things children have made at home. Please help your child to make a Christmas card and write it to the whole class. These can be brought in from Monday 10 December and will be displayed in the classroom. Your child can bring some paper and card home from school for their card, if needed.
The children are working very hard rehearsing their performances and we are looking forward to seeing them.

Christmas Tree Festival
Y1 and Y3 have each decorated a tree in the community Christmas Tree Festival at Millhouses Methodist Church. The theme of the festival is ‘It was on a starry night’. The classes will be visiting the festival before the end of term. All the trees make an amazing sight, so do pop in and have a look if you are at Millhouses shops before Christmas.
Christmas Dinner
Traditional Christmas dinner at both schools is on Wednesday 19 December. School sandwiches will be available and can be ordered on the day.
Christmas Party Day
Party Day is Thursday 20 December. This is a non-uniform day and children can come to school in party or casual clothes. Christmas party lunch will be served to all at Holt House (this will be the only Holt House choice) and those who order it at Carterknowle.
Dress Down Day
Friday 21 December is dress down day – for £1 wear your Christmas jumper, your sparkles and sequins or just something comfy.
Friday 21 December 2018: last day of term

…and best wishes for the New Year. Thank you to everyone for your support for our fantastic schools – Mrs Haynes & Miss Clark.
