        Welcome to 4 Holly!

Important Information

  • Reading - every child will read with an adult each day during our Book Club session. They will then need to do some further reading and possibly an activity at home ready for the next day.
  • Spellings - a spelling list will be sent home every Friday. The children will have a week to practise their spellings both at home and in school and they will then be tested on them the following Friday. 
  • Times Tables - the children will be tested each Friday to ensure retention of the times tables facts. Please help your child practise at home through the use of Times Tables Rockstars or through other games. All children in Year 4 will have a National times tables assessment in June.
  • PE - 4 Holly will have outdoor PE every Wednesday. All children should come to school wearing their PE kits for the day.
