Welcome to Willow Class

Classteacher: Miss J. Dandy

Our Learning: 


This week, we have been digraph detectives!  At home (or out and about!), see if your child can spot any digraphs in a word before they blend the sounds to read the word.  Digraphs are two letters that make one sound, like:

oa (goat, boat) ai (rain, pain) ee (green, see) oo/oo (book/look, moon/spoon)


How many can your child find?  You could even ask them to write the words to pop into their Learning Journey at school!


In Maths, we have investigated halving and grouping.  We have had great fun finding out different ways to split numbers and share objects between friends, working out if the groups we make are equal or not.


We thoroughly enjoyed the 'Young Voices Biggest Sing' and being part of a Guinness World Record challenge.  We relaxed and watched the performance the following day with refreshing ice lollies, but it is quite tricky to spot our class in the background!  If you would like to see the 02 performance and try to spot Willow class on the screens, the video can be found at:

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:
