What a cracking time we all had!!🐥🐣🥚

Easter celebrations have been a hit and it's been so wonderful to have parents in school to see their children showcase their hard work and brilliant ideas.

It was a difficult decision as everyone's entries were amazing!! Congratulations to our Easter winners for being so creative with their Easter bonnets and decorated eggs competition.

Well done to everybody!! 😊😊😊
As the weather is forecast to be wet tomorrow, could you please ensure children wear sensible clothing and shoes for the Circus Day (Friday 8th April)

Year 3 made a Vegan Berry Crumble yesterday. Thank you parents for taking part!
EYFS have had some new additions, meet our chicks. We can’t decide what to name them, could you help?
Holyhead needs your help!

We are making a time capsule to be buried in the school grounds. Our children have already had some brilliant ideas and we would love to hear some of your ideas too!

Items to be put in the time capsule must be no larger than an orange and non perishable.

Year 1 had a brilliant cooking session with Mrs Cobley. We made Oat biscuits, and they were delicious!
In today's fast-paced world, it is crucial for young individuals to develop a wide range of skills that go beyond academics. Equipping our students with essential life skills prepares them for a successful and well-rounded future. Among these skills, cooking is not only a valuable and practical ability, but it also fosters independence and promotes a healthy lifestyle. 🥰


Exciting opportunity ahead 😀 Come and join Mrs Wood in our new mini sensory classes.
