Trips and Visits
The children have enjoyed some brilliant residential experiences this term Y3 went to Whirlow Farm overnight; Y4 ventured out to Ilam Hall; Y5 rose to the
challenge of Thornbridge and Y6s experienced the joys of camping at Caythorpe. It was great to see so many children taking up the opportunity to have a residential experience and for those that didn’t stay overnight in Y3, 4 & 5 to be able to join their friends on site. Y6s who didn’t camp enjoyed their activity week very much, especially abseiling at Burbage. 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. Then at 2.45pm Y5 parents/carers are invited into school to watch their children perform in the Y5 Eid Assembly.
Sports News: Bouldering Champions!

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, at Holt House. More details will follow in the next few weeks.
