Welcome to Kelly Holmes Class!

Our classes this academic year are named after athletes. Dame Kelly Holmes, DBE, OLY is a retired British middle distance athlete. Holmes specialised in the 800 metres and 1,500 metres events and won gold medals for both distances at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.

In RE we have been listening to the story of The Good Samaritan. We spoke about what it means to be a 'Good Samaritian' and that loving your neighbour means loving everyone, that way that God loves us.

Thank you so much to all the lovely parents/guardians in Holmes class for attending our first Book Nook session! 
The children really enjoyed sharing their favourite books with you and reading with you!

STEM CHALLENGE in Holmes Class!
We have been set a task in our class this week from no other than Jack (he is good friends with Miss Wade apparently!)

Jack wanted us to design, make and evaluate something that would safely bring the golden egg down from the top of the beanstalk. We followed these steps:

- Initial discussions about what materials to use

- Designing and labelling our model

- Gathering of materials

- Making our models

- Testing our models 

- Evaluation 


We have loved becoming inventors for the day!
