Welcome to the Holwell Whole School Events page!

On this page you will find information about events that are running that involve the whole school, rather than individual classes.


The Big School Birdwatch.

On Friday 29th January 2021, we will be doing our bit to take part in this years Big School Birdwatch. This event is run by the RSPB and is important for the conservation of local birds in our environment. 

In school and through our online learning, we will be taking part in various fun activities aimed at learning about different birds and the importance of their conservation.

Between 10-11am on the 29th January, the children will be going outside to count the number of birds that can be seen, before entering the results into the Big Schools Birdwatch website. You are invited to do the same in your own garden! It's free to sign up, so you could even log your results yourselves.

3 Peaks Challenge

On Monday 18th January 2021, we have all been set the 3 Peaks Challenge.

The 3 Peaks Challenge is a national event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours. The schools in Welwyn and Hatfield have been invited to take part in this challenge but instead of 24 hours, you have until Friday 12th February to see if you can walk the same amount of steps as you would if you were to climb the 3 Peaks.

All the information you need has been uploaded to your Google Classroom and can be found in the PowerPoint below. 

If you choose to accept this challenge, you could earn an extra 45 RICRACS in total - all you have to do is keep walking and logging those steps! Don't forget to send a photo to your class email address once you have reached the summit so your teacher can log your RICRACS.

Will you reach all 3 summits and appear in our celebration assembly on Friday 12th February?

Happy hiking! 

Number Day!

On Friday 5th February 2021, We will be having a Number Day at Holwell! The Holwell staff have planned fun, challenging and maths-tastic activities for children to complete both in school and through online learning.

During Number Day, your children will learn that maths is in fact everywhere!

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.


Number Day + Holwell = fun for all!
