Autumn 2

Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term!

Our text for Autumn 2 is 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne. 

Gorilla : Browne, Anthony, Browne, Anthony: Books

Hannah loves gorillas but has never seen one. Her father's too busy to take her to the zoo – or for anything else come to that. For her birthday, Hannah asks her father for a gorilla – but is disappointed when she discovers that the gorilla she's got is just a toy one. But then something extraordinary happens ... the toy turns into a real gorilla, who puts on her father's hat and coat and takes her off for a magical visit to the zoo...



In history, we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. Our key question for this half term is...

What impact did Ancient Greece have on modern day life?

The Ancient Greeks had Alternative Facts - They Were Just Chill About it

We can't wait to hear and see what ideas you have on this intriguing topic!



Homework will be handed out on a Friday and is due back in to school on a Tuesday. We will be continuting to use Seesaw and Mathletics for our homework this year. 

If you would like more details or help or tips about Seesaw please follow the link below:


A QR code for Seesaw will be given out in September to log in. For Mathletics homework, a QR code will also be issued in September.


If you need a new QR code or your existing one isn't working, please contact Miss McLoughlin on the class email. 




Holly class will have their PE sessions on Mondays and Fridays.

Monday's lesson is indoor PE and Friday's lesson is outdoor PE.

Please ensure that your child comes into school in their full kit on these days.

PE Uniform: 

  • White t-shirt
  • Plain black shorts
  • Black pumps for indoor PE
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Tracksuits, sweatshirts and leggings can be worn for outdoor PE in colder weather 
  • Ear rings must be removed and long hair must be tied back


Times Tables

Please also practice the times tables that your child is on. Children are tested twice every week and cannot move on to the next times table until they have passed their current level three times. This includes multiplication and division.



Children should be reading at home every evening. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and record this in their reading record. Reading books and reading records should be brought into school every day. 

Bug Club is a fantastic online resource which will encourage your child to explore a wider range of books and allows your child to read their level reading books in a digital format. All children have a login and can access the website through an internet browser.



Please encourage your child to log on to Mathletics as often as possible in order to improve their maths knowledge. The Mathletics app can be downloaded on most tablets or you can access Mathletics through an internet browser.
