Happy New Year!
Here we are in 2017! I hope everyone had a lovely break and enjoyed the festive season. We had a great time at Holt House celebrating Christmas. The children in the EYFS brought a lump to our throats with their lovely concert of Christmas songs and rhymes, while the children in KS1 produced a wonderful musical nativity. We also all had a marvellous time watching the live panto ‘Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood’. Beautiful Christmas cards were produced by the children at home and were put on display in the classrooms. Christmas Party Day was enjoyed by everyone and we finished off with a non-uniform day and extra play for all!
Physical Development Opportunities
We pride ourselves on the opportunities we provide for children to develop their physical skills at Holt House. Everyday children can access outdoor learning in a variety of ways, including using the equipment behind the classrooms or riding bikes at lunchtime. We also arrange for children to access sports opportunities outside of the school day. This half term some children will be competing against other children from local schools in athletics competitions.
Just in case it snows…
We always do our best to stay open in bad weather and will send out text messages to keep you informed. If you think it is not safe to bring your child to school in the snowy weather your child’s absence from school will not be counted if the majority of schools in Sheffield are closed. If it snows a lot at night there may only be time to clear the path to the main entrance before the start of the school day. In heavy snow the yard gates will stay locked in the morning until the paths can be cleared and gritted, so everyone should come in through the office entrance, change their boots in the hall and then go to class.
