The Holy Brook School

Welcome to Rain Drops Page






During the Autumn Term, in our phonics lessons we will be focusing on letters, sounds and words from phase 2-3. 
We will use words in these phases to practice handwriting and spelling. 


Phase 2 Fishy Phonics Game

Phase 3 Phonics Frog Game



During the Autumn Term we will have a focus on listening to a range of stories and poems as well as correctly spelling words and forming letters.





Each term we aim to cover 3 maths targets: number & place value, calculation
and 'other' such as shape. 

In September we will be looking at counting up to 100, reading and correctly
forming our numbers.

Afternoon lessons

Our afternoon lessons follow the same structure each week:

  • Monday & Tuesday - Science 
  • Wednesday - Humanities (Geography, History, R.E.)
  • Thursday - Sports
  • Friday - Art


Our Science is delivered through schemes of work titled Myself (Autumn), My World (Spring) and My Environment (Summer). 

During the Autumn Term we will have a focus on naming and sorting common animals as well as comparing animals by their size, diet and habitat.



In PSHE we will be focusing on building relationships and discussing likes/dislikes and what recognising that we are all good at different things.


You may be feeling different emotions about September and that is normal and ok. 


 At The Holy Brook School we talk lots about our feelings. Below is an example of our Zones of Regulation. We use this to support children identify which zone they may be in and which emotions go with that.


 To support this, we will be reading 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas to support your child to make connections between colours and emotions.




Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you on Monday 5th September.
