Welcome to Willow Class!


We hope you all enjoyed a lovely break and are ready for Term 3. The children worked incredibly hard last term, consolidating their learning from Term 1, and making progress towards the Year 1 objectives. This term we will be learning about Africa, finding out where it is in relation to the UK, with a focus on the animals and landscape of Kenya. In science, we will be learning about different animals and thinking about grouping them in different ways.


We will be focusing on reading this term, with homework being linked to reading, and work in class enthusing the children about books. There will be no maths homework. 


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. 


  • Home learning books will be checked weekly and new spellings set each Friday. If your child is learning the spellings quickly, then please extend their learning by asking them to say a sentence containing that word before writing it into a sentence.


  • 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.
