Welcome to Willow Class!


We hope you all enjoyed a lovely break and are ready for Term 5. The children worked incredibly hard last term, and enjoyed taking part in World Book Day and Books at Bedtime, thank-you parents for your support with these. This term we will be learning about famous authors, with a particular focus on Julia Donaldson. We will be reading her books, investigating the characters in the books, and producing artwork, inspired by her books. In science we will be investigating seasonal changes and finding out how the seasons affect what we wear, and the activities we do. In geography we will be exploring weather patterns in the UK and further afield. 


We will be focusing on reading this term, with homework being linked to reading, and work in class enthusing the children about books. 


A few things to remember:

  • Outdoor PE will be every Friday and Indoor PE will be every Tuesday. PE kit should be in school everyday. 


  • Book bags should come to school everyday. 


  • Reading records will be checked every week. 


  • Please read to and with your child as often as you can. This is very important to help them practice the skills we learn in phonics lessons, to improve fluency, and encourage a love of reading.


  • If your child is going home with someone else, please inform one of the adults in the class.



Thank you for your support with the children's reading and home learning, it all helps to make a difference.


Mrs Beale and Mrs Taylor.


Please note that Mrs Beale teaches the class on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Mrs Taylor teaches the class from Wednesday to Friday, with the help of Mrs Lucas in the mornings, from Monday to Friday and Mrs Dunn in the afternoons, from Monday to Friday.

World Book Day - Thursday 7th March 2019


It was wonderful to see Willow Class dressed as their favourite book characters for the day. We had everything from the T-Rex from 'Harry and the Dinosaurs' to Mary Poppins! Thank you to all parents who supported the day by sourcing and making such fabulous costumes.


We ended a long and busy day with our annual 'Books at Bedtime' event. Families braved the rain to come and hear stories in the comfort of our PJ's and slippers. A comfy cushion, 'log fire', cookies and milk finished the day off nicely! 


Here is a game of 'Where's Wally' for you to play at home.
