Welcome to Willow Class

Classteacher: Miss J. Dandy

Parents and Carers - 

I am so pleased that you are enjoying the activities we are posting on Google Classroom...I think we are all getting the hang of the technology now!

Don't forget that there are now two daily (Monday-Friday!) Google Meets for Willow class at 9:15 and 12:15 and that the link to join is posted on the Google Classroom stream shortly before each session. 


Every Monday, we will be adding a 'Week Beginning ... Photos and Videos' assignment to the stream/classwork tab on Google Classroom, where you will be able to add any photos and videos of your child's learning across the week in a safe and secure way. It will appear in the stream just like the 'materials' we have got used to this week (and is easily accessed under the 'classwork' tab), but allows you to add videos and photos when you open it. We thought this might take the strain off trying to email everything in!  Give it a go next week and see what you think.  If you find it tricky to attach photos or videos in the assignment, please feel free to continue saving work for Learning Journeys or emailing them to the school address: (

Willow Class have created and internalised a 'text map' recount of our building day! We have used lots of time connectives - see if you can spot them!

We are learning to master our maths skills, to help us truly understand the concepts of maths.  Numberblocks is a fantastic programme that supports this and you can often get great resources in the CBeebies magazines!


If you want to find out more about how we pronounce sounds in phonics and how you can support your child with their learning at home, then check out the Alphablocks!


Wish your child would say more than "nothing" when you ask about their day? Try using these sneaky questions when you chat to them (borrowed from a parenting blog...too good not to share!).


Ever wonder which skills your children are learning through play?  Here is a link that you might find interesting:
