Countdown to Christmas


Miss Williams did it again! Each year Miss Williams surpasses all expectations and produces a truly wonderful and memorable Christmas show. This year it was ‘Countdown to Christmas’, featuring Tick and Tock , the Fairy Clockmother, snowmen, a Greek restaurant, a Nativity and many others.  All of the children looked fabulous in their costumes, singing… Continue reading Countdown to Christmas.


Hollies Christmas Concert 2014


Another year, another Hollies production – ‘Baubles’ !  Every year the children never cease to amaze me with their hidden talents just waiting for the opportunity to shine. It is so wonderful to see their confidence build as the rehearsals progress. Baubles was about a school, not so very different to this one, with lots… Continue reading Hollies Christmas Concert 2014.


Third Year Concert


Each year a school concert takes place in the Spring term. This year it is the turn of the Third Years. The title of the concert ‘Eddie the Penguin Saves the World’ has an environmental message to us all. The children have learnt about the effects of pollution, recycling, saving our rainforests and the habitats… Continue reading Third Year Concert.


Easter Puppet Show


At the Hollies this term we were lucky to have a visit from the Coton Green Church Theatre Group. Ali the camel made us laugh and helped us to understand the real meaning of Easter.


Second Year Houses


The Easter term has been a busy one for the Second Years.  Learning our address, making graphs and maps, and building our own home have been some of the highlights of our geography topic. The topic ended with an ‘open house’ day for the rest of the school to look at and ask questions about… Continue reading Second Year Houses.


Hollies choir


It’s a hat-trick!  Once again the 4th year entered the Nuneaton and Bosworth Music Festival and won. Two contrasting pieces were expected and this they delivered: a slow, beautiful song with the introduction sung by Abigail Stacey and a 4-part jazzy number sung with energy and precision. They worked hard leading up to the competition and deserved the praise… Continue reading Hollies choir.


4th year concert


With only a 4-week half-term to work with, the 4th year managed to produce one of the best end of year concerts to date. Combined with important events of 2012 such as the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, the children (with much deliberation!) informed their parents of their most outstanding achievements in life so far and which career paths… Continue reading 4th year concert.


Market Bosworth Festival


We were pleased that some of the children’s artwork and writing entries were on display during the Market Bosworth Festival. The schools competition was based on the theme ‘Words and Pictures’ and the children’s work was on display during the festival in June.


Painting like Van Gogh


The third years enjoyed their art lessons painting like Van Gogh.


Children of the World


The highlight of the term for all of the children at the Hollies has been our Christmas concert ‘Children of the World’. Under the expert guidance and supervision of Mrs Mead, the children produced a superb performance with beautiful singing and dance routines. The concert began with a Nativity performance from the First Years. The… Continue reading Children of the World.
