What we have been up to so far in our Forest Schools sessions.
On Friday 6th November we celebrated Bonfire Night in our Outdoor Learning session. We joined up with the Community Learning group and spent the afternoon in our Forest Skills area. Mr Kelley led the session and we lit our own fires, cooked on the fire pit, toasted marshmallows and filled our tummies with hot dogs and jacket potatoes. To finish off the session we had sparkling time with sparklers!
As it was Election Day Hollywood used democratic voting to vote for the new Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Eco Committee. Lots of staff and pupils read the manifestos and cast their vote. The results of the secret ballot will be announced soon!
Year 2 decided to vote democratically to name the butterflies that are developing in their cocoons in 2BP. The winning names were Rainbow, Poppe, Ryanair, Fluttershy and Katie Rosy.
Thank you to all children and staff who came to school dressed as a book character to celebrate World Book Day. We all had a lovely day! We were introduced to our new school Librarian Mrs Haddock and a real author Mr David Flint visited us to talk about his books. Many children came back for the evening storytelling event. The hot chocolates and biscuits were very popular!
We learned that World Book Day is celebrated in over 100 countries around the world and this year is the 18th World Book Day being celebrated.
Mr Ryan won the best staff costume for being a dragon! There was a prize given to one child in each year group, whose prize was a new book. Many children took part in the book exchange too, swapping a book they no longer wanted for another one that another child wanted to swap.
We will look forward to World Book Day 2016!
It is World Book Day this Thursday (5th March)! We are looking forward to seeing the children (and teachers) in a variety of wonderful costumes as characters from books we know and love.

We are helping to make the world better with a sweater! Friday 12th December will be ‘Wear a Christmas Jumper to School day.’ We are raising money for Save the Children. Children are invited to wear a Christmas jumper (bought or made!) and bring a donation of £1 into school to support the work that Save the Children do at home and abroad.
This week at Hollywood, we are commemorating the centenary of World War 1.
Each class is taking part in their own way, researching and learning about how the sacrifices made in both World Wars have impacted on our lives today.
