Christmas at Holt House and Carterknowle
Christmas Trees
Our traditional Christmas trees have arrived from Whirlow Farm. These are put up in both school halls and are decorated by the children - as far as they can reach! They look very beautiful and will be on show until the end of term.
Christmas Cards
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 11 December and will be displayed in the classroom. Your child can bring some paper and card home from school for their card, if needed.
Christmas Concerts
The children are working very hard rehearsing their performances and we are looking forward to seeing them.

Christmas Tree Festival
Y1 and Y3 are taking part in the community Christmas Tree Festival at Millhouses Methodist Church. Both year groups have contributed decorations for a tree and 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.
Carol Singing
Y3 and Y4 are representing us and contributing to the local community, by singing at Tesco at 11am on 14 December (Y3) and 15 December (Y4).
