Holly Leaves

Welcome to Holly Leaves
Holly Leaves is home to 14 Reception and Year One children, Mrs Cox (Class Teacher Monday and Tuesday), Miss Pearson (Class Teacher Wednesday - Friday) Miss Worgan (Higher Level Teaching Assistant and Emotional Literacy Support Assistant), and Miss Goodall (1-1 Teaching Assistant).
Our Learning - Spring 1
The Curriculum Overview below gives details of what Holly Leaves are learning this term and last term.
Our Themes 
Every term, Holly Leaves explore a different theme. We have range of books we read and learn with that explore this theme. Children then complete activities to develop their understanding and knowledge. 
The themes are explained in our reading spine below. 

Our PE day is Wednesday. We ask that children come to school dressed in appropriate PE kit:

  • Black shorts/track suit bottoms
  • T-shirt in your house colour (red, green, blue, yellow) - no logos please
  • School jumper/cardigan 
  • Trainers/daps which must remain in school

Earrings and watches MUST be REMOVED for all PE lessons.

We follow the phonics scheme Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. For more information about this, including some very helpful videos modelling the sounds please follow the link below.
Tricky Words
'Tricky words’ are words that cannot easily be decoded (‘sounded out’ and read). This is because some of the sounds in the words are spelled in an unusual way. It is important for children to be able to read these words as they are among the most common words in English.
