Welcome to Holly Class!
Welcome to Holly class website page! We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class.
From September, the grown-ups in Holly class will be
Miss Rogers, Miss Stones and Miss Brown!
We are really looking forward to our new school year!
As we slowly return to 'normal' following the Covid-19 restrictions, we are now allowed more equipment in the classroom. From September, you will be able to bring a small book bag to school for your reading book, as well as a PE kit bag, plus your coat, water bottle and packed lunch (if you bring one). Please do not bring large backpacks as we these are not allowed at this time - please come and see us if you are unsure or have any questions about this.
The adults in Holly class have put lots of effort into getting our classroom ready for the new school year - please see below for some photos so you can see what our learning environment looks like!
We are so excited to welcome you all back to school :)

Please see below for our half-termly Parent Forecasts. These will give you some ideas about the topic and learning we will be doing in Holly class.
At Kirkby Avenue Primary School, we believe reading to be extremely important. Reading underpins so many other areas of the curriculum and supports the children in developing their imagination. To support your child with their reading, we ask that you listen to them read at home as often as possible and record this in their ‘Reading Record’.
In school, we have a ‘Reading Superstars’ system for the number of times your child reads with you at home. For Key Stage 1, the breakdown for this is as follows:
Three days out of 7 – your child will earn 1 team point
Four days out of 7 – your child will earn 2 team points
Five or more days out of 7 – your child will earn 3 team points and a prize from our special prize box!

Our PE day
We are finally able to bring our PE kits again! Our new PE day is Wednesday. However, we may have to change our slot because of things happening in school, or we may sometimes get an extra session.
Please make sure you bring your PE kit on a Monday morning and leave it in school all week in case of any changes. Children should also have earrings removed in advance, and long hair should be tied back for safety.
At our school, homework is set in the form of a 'menu'. This will have a range of activities to give you choice and flexibility, e.g. you can choose more creative activities on quieter weekends when you have more time. One activity should be completed each week. We will also have weekly spellings to learn and practise.
In Holly class, homework will be set on a Friday, and is due back by the following Wednesday.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
