We are currently rehearsing for our Key Stage 1 nativity show, ‘Christmas with the Aliens’. You will soon receive a message informing you of your child’s part/role.

The nativity will be performed across three dates, with a dress rehearsal in school. To assist with everyone’s safety and comfort, parents will unfortunately only be able to attend the date stated for their child’s class with 2 places per child:

  1. 6th December – Dress rehearsal in school
  2. 7th December – 2:00pm – Performance for Reception families. 2 tickets per child.
  3. 8th December – 2:00pm – Performance for Year 1 families. 2 tickets per child.
  4. 9th December – 2:00pm – Performance for Year 2 families. 2 tickets per child.

Please be advised that as there are so many children performing, not every child is able to have a speaking role this year.


End of Year Message

We cannot believe today marks the end or your children’s first year at Hollins and what a memorable year it has been!  All the staff have gained tremendous strength and pride from teaching your amazing children. They have faced every new challenge especially lockdown with courage and positivity.

They are all unique in their own way but together they have the wow factor.

Thanks so much to the ‘grown-ups’ for all your kind words, wishes and truly generous gifts.

We wish all our Reception family a safe and enjoyable summer. We should all be very proud of what we’ve achieved together, memories to treasure always.💛

Take care of each other
