Trips and Visits
The children had some lovely trips out last half term. Foundation 2 visited Bolsover castle, Year 1 went to Chatsworth and Year 2 went to Eyam and found out all about its fascinating history. This half term Foundation 2 and Year 2 are looking forward to their visits to the seaside (Cleethorpes and Withernsea) and Year 1 are hoping for fine weather for their play day in the park. Thank you to all the parent/carer helpers who have supported our trips all year and made them possible. Your hard work is much appreciated..
New Class Practice Days
Thursday 29 June and Friday 30 June are our ‘moving up days’ when everyone gets a chance to try out their new class for September.
Eid Celebration
We are looking forward to celebrating Eid on Friday 30 June in the afternoon. Children can get changed into Eid/party clothes after lunch, so will need to bring these to school in a bag and leave it on their peg. The children will have food tasting and other activities and will be finding out about the festival.
Change to Staff Training Days 2017 - 18
To maintain the security of the Carterknowle school site when Carterknowle Studio is used as a polling station, it is better to close the school. 22 December 2017 is now no longer a school closure day and children are required to attend. This training day will now be taken on polling day 2018 for both Holt House and Carterknowle.
The Summer Fair is on its way!
The joint Holt House and Carterknowle Summer Fair is on Friday 7 July 2.30-5.30pm, here at Holt House. More details will follow in the next few weeks.

Holt House is awarded the Silver Travel Award.
