Teaching Assistant

Willow Class is our Year 1 class and is taught by Ms Marshall on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs. Perfect on Thursdays and Fridays with Mrs. Wykes our teaching assistant. 
Our PE days are Tuesday and 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- Superheroes All Around Us!
Autumn Term 1
Pow! Wham! Crash! What is that noise? Could it be a superhero on a recuse mission? Who's your favourite superhero? What special superpowers do they have? If you could have any special powers, what would you most like to have? What makes you special and what are your strengths? How do real everyday heroes help people? Find out about superfoods and design a meal fit for a superhero. Discover historical heroes from long ago, as well as recent history - Mary Seacole, Rosa Parks and Malala Yousafzai. We'll design masks and city scenes and work together to uncover our hidden talents and abilities!
Super Willow Class to the rescue!
Willow Class topic - A Royal Invitation to London
Autumn Term 2
This half-term, we will kick off our new topic with a Royal Tea Party on Wednesday 3rd November at 1:30! All of our children are invited to wear their finest garments. We will be practising our royal etiquette, standing for the National Anthem and using our best manners. Throughout this topic, we will be learning about the city of London and the wonderful buildings and landmarks there. We will be thinking about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, finding routes on maps through London, investigating the Great Fire of London, learning about silhouettes and creating our very own moving model of the London Eye!
Paddington Bear will be helping us on our exciting journey and we can't wait!
