WELCOME TO WILLOW'S CLASS PAGE!

Your Teacher is Mrs Saville and your Teaching Assistants are Miss Walker and Mrs Glynn.

Year 1s will have their Phonics Screening Checks after the Half Term. To help them prepare, attached is some advice on how to help at home. One of the most helpful things you could do is listen to them read, and read to them; if they hear you read, they're hearing how to pronounce unfamiliar words.

In Forest School this week we experimented with colours from nature, filling in a blank colour wheel by rubbing mud/grass/twigs onto each segment of the wheel.

Today, Willow Class took part in a workshop called Our Future. Our Future is part of a career-related programme that focuses on inspiring children to aim high and learn about the world of work. We had different stations, all focusing on different skills needed in the workplace, eg. team work, patience, maths skills, attention to detail.

Why not do some bird watching this weekend in your garden? How many of these common garden birds do you spot?

Willow's big bird watch.

Today we had a look at some of the artist Paul Klee's work and how he uses shades of the same colour to show his mood. We practiced our tinting skills by gradually adding more and more white.

For RSPB's Big Bird Watch we had a look at some common birds we might find in the garden or at the park. Thinking about where these birds live, we made bird nests using what we learnt from our materials hunt to help decide what we would need to build a nest.

We brought our materials hunt out into Forest School

Our PE day is every Tuesdays so please come in your PE kits. 

 

 

PE kits should be white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or long bottoms and black trainers or PE pumps. 

Our Forest School day is Thursdays so please wear your school uniform and bring your forest school clothes and waterproofs in a bag. Don't forget your wellies!

 

 

 

 

Forest School clothes should be covering the arms and legs as there are stinging nettles and other things in the forest school area that could hurt.

 

 

Reading books will be changed every Friday so please make sure you bring your reading book and diary on this day.

Autumn Term Topic

 

Our topic this term is Marvellous Me!

 

This half term, we will be learning about the names of the different parts of the human body as well as how we should be looking after ourselves by exercising and eating healthily. We will also compare how our grandparent's childhood was different to our own childhood today.

 

Our RE topic is God. We will be looking at different stories from the Bible and how Christians worship God.
