Welcome to Holly!
Mrs Webster, Mrs Crossley and Mrs Branston 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 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. We will make superhero finger puppets and clay models in Design Technology linked to superheroes. In History, we will be learning about changes in living memory by comparing our toys to our parents' and grandparents' toys. We will link our senses to Autumn and learn about the changing seasons. In RE, we will think about belonging, building into belonging to different religions.
P.E. days are Tuesdays and Fridays. 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.
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.
