Welcome to Holly

Welcome to Holly Class Pages where you will find information about what we are enjoying in our learning.

In Holly Class we have specialist phonics, English and maths lessons for deaf pupils.

Parents and carers can really help their child by listening to them read every night and recording this in their school journal. When children read regularly at home, they are rewarded by better progress in their reading. In addition, we have half-termly reading rewards for pupils who are regularly reading.

Each week we have a spelling test and give out new spellings, these are sent home in the planners.

This half term in English we are linking with the Y5 topic Ancient Greece and Y3 topic Inventions. We will be reading the Greek myth King Midas and writing an alternative ending for it. We will then work on instructions for our own inventions.

We will also be introducing the Rainbow Grammar system in order to improve our understanding of the parts of a sentence and learn how to write some fantastic ones!

In Maths we are focusing on fractions ,(half and quarter) numbers to 100, time and money. It would be great if you could practice telling the time and give your child the opportunity to handle money, e.g buying a small item with their own money when you go shopping.

There is a link below for a website that might be useful for maths games to play at home.

We are always available to talk to parents who have any questions about their child's work or well being, please contact the school to make an appointment.
