Term 4 week 4

Hello :) 

A huge well done to Holly Class children this week for all their amazing learning and hard work producing some outstanding pieces of writing!


This week we have continued to look at our focus text 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt who has fast become one of our favourite authors! We have taken inspiration from his book and suddenly, stationary from around the classroom including sharpeners, glue sticks and pencils have all been writing us letters about what is upsetting them and we have begun to write letters back! 

Holly Class have really impressed me with their enthusiasm towards their letters and I cannot wait to see their final pieces next week! 

Year 1 Maths 

Year 1s in Holly Class have gone with the flow with week as they started to look at capacity! They are able to tell me what the measuring of capacity is and using non-standard units, measure and record the capacity of different containers around the school. 


Year 2 Maths 

Year 2s have had a great TIME this week as they have started to look at telling the time. We have made our own clocks, focusing on the different hands and what they mean. We have learned that there is 60 minutes in a hour and begun to look at telling the time to the nearest 15 minutes. 


  1. Reading records should be in school DAILY. Every Friday, Miss Beamish and Mrs Giles collect all reading records to see how you are getting on at home and to ensure you are progressing through your reading book bands correctly. Please ensure your reading records are in school every day. 
  2. Home Learning is handed out on a Friday and is due the Following Thursday to allow us enough time to mark the home learning. If you are experiencing any difficulties with the task, then please do let me know before the Thursday deadline. 
  3. On Friday 25th March 2022, Holly Class are hoping to visit our local church (St Martin's). We are leaving school around 1:15pm to be back no later than 3:00pm. If you are able to help us walk to the church and back pleae let me know otherwise Holly Class will not be able to go on the trip. 

Thank you
