Eid Mubarak
We will be celebrating Eid on Wednesday 12 June. Children may bring celebratory or Eid clothes to change into for the afternoon. There will be food tasting and other Eid activities.
Move More Month
June is ‘move more month’ and we are joining in by taking part in the Active Travel Challenge (10-21 June) and organising our own Keeping Healthy Week (17-21 June). In Keeping Healthy Week children will be learning about all the different ways in which they can have good health.

We are looking forward to the bike and scooter challenges which are happening and the Active Travel Breakfast Events which are taking place on 17 June at Holt House and 18 June at Carterknowle.
Support Keeping Healthy
Please support our Keeping Healthy Week by keeping your car away from our schools at drop off and pick up times, so that the children have cleaner air to breathe.
Charitable Fund Raising
A huge THANK YOU for your very kind support of our fundraising on 24 May. Holt House collected £181 for ReSurge Africa and Carterknowle £158, with Y4 raising £120 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. The money for ReSurge Africa will go straight to the point of need, to Holy Spirit Hospital in Makeni, Sierra Leone.
