Kelly Holmes Class

Welcome to Kelly Holmes Class!

Miss Wade

Mrs Todman & Mrs Halloran

Our classes this academic year are named after athletes. Dame Kelly Holmes, DBE, OLY is a retired British middle distance athlete. Holmes specialised in the 800 metres and 1,500 metres events and won gold medals for both distances at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. 

Autumn 2: Be reflective like a chameleon

Today we became History Detectives! 

We used clues to figure out when the Great Fire of London was and how it started. 

The children worked in groups, with their adult and came up with some incredible ideas!

We even spoke about whether we thought it was accidental or on purpose - an interesting discussion in Holmes Class!

Ordering objects from greatest to smallest in Maths.

Using Purple Mash to sort objects into different groups.

Fine motor activities using chunky chalk!

In our Maths lessons, we have been looking at repeated patterns. Today, we made our own necklace with our own patterns on!

Today we listened to the story Rama and Sita, in our English lessons. 

We made our own bridges, like Rama did in the story. We used these to help us re-tell the story.

Autumn 1: Be positive like a giraffe

Explorer Day with Adrian Hall (…an actual explorer!) 

We really put out Map skills to use today, travelling North, South, East and West to find the hidden flags. We have a lot of children that feel inspired to become explorers and travel the Arctic now! 

African Art Week!

The Bird Man

The children had a lovely visit from the Bird Man today! They found out all about different birds, including what makes them so unique. They even had the chance to hold them. We saw an eagle, a peregrine falcon, a barn owl and a hawk! 

HM Queen Elizabeth II


Eternal rest, grant to her O Lord,
and let Perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.

We are reading Bears in the Night in our English lessons. Today, we came Bears in the Day at St. Mary’s and followed the same journey the bears did! 

What is the difference between night and day?

Sorting objects by size, colour and shape.

Clapping to the beat and using instruments to find the beat.

Finding the rhythm in Music!

We love lunchtime!
