Holly Class

 Autumn 2 - Movers and Shakers

We have had such fun in Holly class this half term. Out topic has been Movers and Shakers, where we learnt all about significant people from the past. We have learnt all about famous people such as, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst, Neil Armstrong and so many more! We loved our engage day where we got to learn all about famous people in History.


In English we have been writing fact files about famous people from History. We have been working hard on our handwriting and careful segmenting of our words when we write.


In Maths we have been practising our times tables and subtraction and addition.

We have also had lots of fun in our Art lessons learning all about different artists and recreating some of their famous works of art.

 Autumn 1 - Minibeasts

We have had a great start to our new school year in Holly class. We have settled back into school life well and are enjoying our new topic 'Minibeasts'.

On our first day back we went on an exciting minibeast hunt around our school. We found so many types of minibeasts! We particularly enjoyed finding a spider that was eating a fly!



In Science we have been learning all about the life cycle of a bee and the different types of honey bees. We have also been learning lots of new vocabulary such as camouflage and mimcry.


In DT we tried different types of honey and found out that they are really delicious! We even got to make honey rice crispy cakes! We also made ants using different tools!



In Maths we have been using lots of different resources to help us with adding and take away. We have also been learning to count in 2s, 5s, 10s and even 3s.
