Holy Rood Catholic Primary School


Butterflies - We are super excited as we had butterfly eggs arrive in our class. We watched them as they changed from a butterfly into a chrysalis. We had 4 beautiful butterflies! We let them fly away in the garden on a sunny day.

Roves Farm - Owl Class had a brilliant time on our school trip! We went by coach to Roves Farm and saw lots of different farm animals. We collected eggs from the chickens and had a ride on the tractor. It was a very busy day!

Christmas - We all took part in the Christmas performance 'Children around the World'. We were very proud of all of the children for their beautiful singing and dancing. We invited parents to join us for a 'stay and play' session, where we made Christmas hats, melted snowman biscuits and Christmas tree decorations.

Celebrations - Our topic in term 2 was 'Celebrations'. We enjoyed learning about Diwali, Birthdays and Christmas. We particularly enjoyed cooking traditional Indian sweets and making playdough Diya lamps.

Phonics - We have learnt lots of sounds in phonics. We have practised our sounds in lots of different ways around the classroom!

Autumn - In term 1 we learnt all about Harvest and Autumn. We looked at lots of different vegetables and even had a go at printing with them. We enjoyed reading lots of stories and went on a welly walk. We discussed the changes we might see happening outside and collecting natural resources to make seasonal pictures.

Settling In. We have been exploring our classroom, making new friends and having lots of fun! We are all now coming into school independently and have made a great start to the school year.
