Year 9 and 10 visited The National Space Centre yesterday. Pupils learnt about the life of stars; how elements formed; the solar system; satellites and orbits; redshift; and the Big Bang theory.
Year 1 have been pretending they are stranded on a desert island. The children have had to work out how to survive! We made shelters and talked about windproof and waterproof designs. We made rafts and thought about materials and strength. Yesterday, we tasted fruits that we thought we might find on the island such as coconut, dragon fruit, pomegranate seeds, mango and fig. It’s fun being in Year 1, don’t you think?
The spirit of Hollygirt School really came to light last night at the Junior School House Music competition.
An enormous amount of support and encouragement between pupils was shown which made us rather teary-eyed.
We commend any child that has the bravery to get up on a stage and perform in front of a room full of people regardless of how long they have been learning their instrument. It’s something many adults would find difficult.
Well done, everyone!
