It's Over!!! Yippee!!
A huge well done to all you Lions who have completed your KS2 SATs this week. Thank you also to all the parents and carers who have supported them throughout the year in the build up to the tests.
I'm incredibly proud of you all for all the hard work that you have put in over the last few months and the effort and resilience that you have shown this week.
Mrs Collins' SATs' breakfasts ensured that you had lots of energy and proved a good way to calm those last minute nerves. Nerves? What nerves? You were so well prepared, you seemed totally relaxed and confident.
So, what is next for you at Hollywell in this final term? Auditions for Grease and Camp!!! Well deserved and exciting times ahead!

The Life of the Lion
Four Lessons to be learnt from
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see a Lion or hear about one? Is it its strength? Is it its fierceness and its boldness? Is it its magnificent appearance?
Whatever it is you know about the Lion, you will still have to agree that it is a special animal, in fact it is so special that it is referred to as the “King of the Jungle” The Lion as an animal is one that every leader should strive to learn from. For that reason here are four facts Lions and the lessons you can learn from them to be a true Lion of Hollywell!
FACT: A Lion’s roar can be heard from five miles away:
LESSON: Make yourself heard
What makes the Lion most impressive animal to walk the earth is its voice. As member of the “Pride of Hollywell” you have a reputation to maintain. You can really make a difference to the school as a whole by thinking about what you say, the things that you do and your strength of character. Remember: People like Albert Einstein and Mother Theresa of Calcutta are well known because they had something important to say and said it. They made a difference – you can too!
FACT: Lions Are Very Social Animals; They Form Groups Called Prides
LESSON: Work Together So That You Can Get Better
A fascinating thing about a pride of lions is that other females are always ready to help a female babysit her cubs when she goes hunting. They work as a team to enable their lives to run smoothly. Working together whether it be within a class, within small groups, with a partner or with an adult can be a fun way to gain knowledge. We are all helping each other to learn! Remember the popular acronym TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More).
FACT: Lions rarely eat entire prey, they usually leave leftovers for other animals
LESSON: the ability to share is the hallmark of a leader
Being top of the school is not just about feeling important and special but about making others feelspecial and important too. If you want to be respected, you must learn to give freely of yourself tohelp others. It is hard to imagine that the Lion, in spite of its massive appetite, is still considerate enough to leave leftovers for others.
FACT: A Lion can Spend up to 20 Hours a Day Sleeping:
LESSON: Find Time to Relax
As a Year 6 there are always targets to meet, progress to be made and the SATs ahead to think about. But you also need lots of time to have fun .So, don’t worry, there are many enjoyable activities planned for the year ahead!
