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 in due course. 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!

Maths Homework set Friday 18th September

All the children were given their login details for TTRockstars today. So this week's maths homework is to get to know, or become reacquainted with the App/website. 

We would like you to log in and if you have a new account (if you are new to our school) you will need to complete your first Gig to generate your starting point. If you played on your school account last year you will still be on the same level. 

  • We would like you to complete at least one studio session (when you have completed 10 of these, over time, it calculates your average response time).
  • Then try out the Soundcheck area - this is 25 questions with 6 seconds to complete each answer. 
  • To finish off - you can play a festival - you against the world

                           - play an arena - you against your classmates

                           - complete a Rockslam - you set a score for a classmate to compete against. You can even challenge the teaching staff!

We hope you enjoy playing and let us know how you get on.

It is fantastic to see our Year 2 -5 children's faces again for their Face to Face time sessions. We look forward to continuing to support children at home, in school and at the face to face time sessions. Please keep safe and well during this time.
