Cycle to School

There has been such a good turn out for Cycle to School this year, with parents, pupils and teachers choosing two wheels to make their journey to school. The last date is after half term, on Thursday 8th June, so sign up now to be part of it!

Send your pictures to Mr Boynes of your experience to be included on the Eco blog.

Eco Warriors receive their new badges

Today the new crop of Eco warriors recieved their badges to show that they are part of the group.


The badge is a reminder to them that they have a responsibility to inspire their class in all things Eco and work together to fulfill the aims of the group.

Here’s to a new year of the Eco Warriors at Holme Grange!

Week 4 in Gardening Club

The Gardening Gurus celebrated this Monday as we were awarded our Level One RHS School Gardening Award! This will be awarded in Friday’s Assembly by Mrs Robinson so that we can share our achievements with everyone at school.

Now let’s aim to get Level Two!

Beau and Leila started sowing pansy seeds. The other children helped by watering our currently growing cabbage, lettuce, leeks and butternut squash and of course, looking for worms!


Go Pro Cyclists!

Take a look at this shot from the camera of Mr Wooster taken amid Cycle to School traffic. It’s great to see so many cyclists on the roads.


The Greenhouse Effect

This is a great video from YPTE (The Young People’s Trust for the Environment). It really clearly explains the process that is warming our planet.

There is a link to their website at the left-hand side of this page. Just click on YPTE to view some more informative videos.
