It has been lovely to see so many smiley faces return to school. The children have been exceptional and have settled well into their newly adapted routines. We have been very impressed. Welcome also to several new families in years five and six. We are sure that you will enjoy your time at Holyport. 


We are beginning an exciting term and a newsletter packed with information will be out very soon. In the meantime, here are some useful points to note:

  • Seesaw will be the main method of communication - class notices, reminders, submitting homework etc.
  • Please ensure your child brings in their reading record on a Monday and ensure that it is signed. Please only send in reading books once they are completed.
  • All messages are to be relayed to the office please or via email (parents@).
  • Please ensure your child has a named water bottle and a rain coat. Pencil cases are not needed - we will provide everything your child needs.
  • PE kits are to be worn all day on PE days. Shakespeare - Monday & Thursday, Morpurgo - Monday & Thursday, Dickens - Wednesday & Friday
  • Spare trainers may be left in lockers for break and lunchtimes.


The home learning grid for the topic is posted below. Mathletics will be set for Maths homework. Remember to spend 30 minutes on your homework and try your best. We look forward to issuing lots of house points for any optional home learning that is completed. 


We are looking forward to a fun-filled year with you all!
