Mrs Webster, Mrs Schaefer and Mrs Causer teach in Holly Class.


Welcome to Holly Class' page. This page will give you information about what the children are learning at school.
Please use the links below to find out about different topics. 





Autumn Term 2


This half term our Topic is Marvellous Materials


This half term we will be learning all about materials and their properties. We will investigate which materials are hard/ soft, bendy/ not bendy, stiff and flexible. The children will also learn about waterproof materials and what absorbent, transparent and opaque mean.  We will use what we have learnt about materials to help us build a house in Design and Technology. Alongside our materials learning we will also investigate the weather by looking at seasonal changes, different types of weather and what weather symbols on weather forecasts tell us. 

Autumn Term 1


This half term our topic is Super Senses


This half term's topic is all about our super senses. We will be learning about parts of our body such as bones, joints and our senses in Science, which will link to learning about the famous person, Louis Braille in History. We will make hand and finger puppets in DT linked to Superheroes and will illustrate an ebook and record sound effects for computing. We will link our senses to Autumn and learn about the changing seasons. 

Useful Information


P.E. days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please can you ensure that children have both an indoor and outdoor kit available for these days. Can children with earrings either have them taken out at home or be provided with tape to keep them safe during these lessons please. Outdoor P.E is on a Tuesday, weather permitting, so outdoor P.E. kit can be either brought in that day or left in school. 


Your child is encouraged to change their reading book after lunch on Monday, Wednesdays and Thursdays. After the half term the children will have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday.  As the children become better readers and more confident with their phonics and understanding, they will be reading longer books which may then take 2 or 3 days to read. 


We will aim to hear the children read in a guided reading session once every two weeks. At other times in the week the children may be heard by other adults within school. Children are also reading during daily phonics session and often in English and cross curricular lessons too.
