WELCOME TO WILLOW CLASS
Willow Class is a Year 1 class and is taught by Ms Marshall on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, whilst Mrs. Perfect teaches the class on a Thursday and Friday. Miss Banks is with the class every day, working as a 1:1 on a Monday and Tuesday morning. Mr Brown is with us on a Monday morning, Miss Grayston on a Tuesday morning and Mrs Whitelaw is working as a 1:1 onThursday and Friday morning.
Your child will bring home a reading book every day. As part of the school’s homework requirement, children are expected to read to an adult at home at least five times per week. Each week, when a child is successful in reading five times or more, they will gain a reward sticker to fill a bookmark. So that we can monitor this, reading records will be checked in class daily by a member of the Willow teaching team. Thank you for your support with this.
Spellings will also be sent home on a weekly basis for children to practise with your help.
Our PE day is a Thursday, but please could the children bring in their kit every day, as there may be occasions when it's needed.
Thank you! We are really looking forward to working with your children and have many exciting events planned throughout the year.
Our class bear, Snuggles, went home with someone for the first time today!
Each Friday, he will be taken home by a different child in the class. Please make Snuggles part of your family, take him out and about with you, take photos and fill in his diary. Then return him and his diary to class the following Thursday.
Our new topic got off to a brilliant start with a royal delivery containing a letter, recording and crown from none other than H.R.H The Queen! We celebrated with a royal tea party, where we dressed in our finest clothes and have been learning about the historic city of London and finding out little-known facts about The Queen!
We had an amazing morning launching our 'Dinosaur Planet' topic by going on a dinosaur hunt in the field! We worked in teams to read a map and solve some tricky clues in order to find a dinosaur, footprint, fossil and egg. Here are some pictures!
To launch our vibrant new topic, we came to school in our brightest, most colourful clothes ready for carnival! We found out where Brazil is on the world map and learned about the culture, using ‘Bom dia’ to greet one another. Later, we made carnival headdresses using a variety of fabrics and materials. In the afternoon, we investigated samba music, practising playing rhythms on percussion instruments and learning the name of some of the samba instruments. We watched a Brazilian samba band and joined in with the beat!
