Our first two weeks in Holly Class

September 18, 2017 - One Response

We’ve had an amazing couple of weeks in Holly Class, time has flown by!

In Maths, we have been looking at number and place value. Miss Walton was really impressed with our counting skills.

We enjoyed some spicy Maths challenges and made good use of our number squares and Base 10 equipment.


In Science, we showed off all our amazing knowledge about the human body by drawing around someone off our table and then working as a team to add labels to our drawing. We particularly enjoyed sharing our work at the end of the lesson and adding labels to other children’s drawings.

As part of our Superhero topic, we worked together, in our table teams to design our own superhero. We had to listen well to each other, share ideas and design our superhero. Once we had designed our superhero, we presented it to the rest of Holly Class and talked about what makes our design a superhero including special powers and side-kicks.

In R.E. we have been looking at God and Creation. We enjoyed watching a short clip from ‘The Snowman’ and discussed how the little boy in ‘The Snowman’ takes his time, is caring, loving and thoughtful when creating the snowman. We then thought about a time we have created something and how it made us feel, lots of us felt proud and happy when we had created something. We enjoyed going out into the school grounds and having time to reflect on what God has created for us, giving thanks to God for creating a beautiful world.


Just a quick reminder that all children need P.E. kits in school on Mondays and Tuesdays.

If your child has not been bringing a water bottle into class, please can you send one in with their name on.

Spellings are set on a Monday for the following Monday and homework is set on a Thursday, due in on the following Thursday.


Welcome Holly Class!
