Children’s Aims for the school

My school is...

"Brilliant because we take care of each other. We celebrate what other children have done. I always feel safe.

"Amazing because all the teachers are kind and helpful. Every teacher and pupil takes part.

"The best because I love playtime. There are lots of places to play. I love going in the writing corner. I love handwriting so much I can't stop it.

Tremendous because we learn new things every day. The work is interesting. We learn really fun maths. I love maths!

Fantastic because we respect each other. We are one big team. You make best friends at Holmesdale.

Epic because it is as much fun as your home. That's why it's called Holmesdale Infant School!


The school I love because we get to grow our rainbow brains every day. we never give in.
