WELCOME TO WILLOW CLASS
 
Willow Class is our Year 1 class and is taught by Miss. Nadler on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs. Perfect on Thursdays and Fridays with Mrs. Wykes our teaching assistant. 
 
Our PE day is Wednesday. However, we request that named PE kits are in school every day so that we can alter our provision according to the weather. Thank you. 
 
As part of the school’s homework requirement, children are expected to read to an adult at home at least five times per week. This year, your child's reading journal will be checked in class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in line with Covid guidance. These will be the designated days that your child will be able to change their books due to having to quarantine books on return. Please rest assure that reading a book more than once enriches and deepens their reading skills. Each week, on a Friday, when a child is successful in reading five times or more, they will gain a reward sticker to fill a bookmark. Thank you for your support with this. 
 
Spellings will be sent home every Friday. The children will have a week to learn them and they will then have a weekly quiz on the following Friday. 
 
It is important that children have named coats in school all year round. Please provide your child with sun cream and hats when appropriate to allow us to go outdoors in all weathers. Please name all your children's clothes, bags, lunch boxes and bottles.  
 
We are really looking forward to working with your children in Willow Class this year and exploring lots of fun and exciting learning together. 
Willow Class topic- Paws, Claws and Whiskers
Summer Term 2
Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers. What’s your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers? From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do you know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake? Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin. Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail? Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Who is a herbivore and who is a carnivore? When a gaggle of mysterious pets arrive at the local pet shop, it’s up to you to take care of them. Feed them, clean them and discover their daily needs. After all that work, curl up and take a cat nap.
