Welcome to Willow Class

Classteacher: Miss J. Dandy

Sports Day 2021

Our Year: 


This year, your children have overcome SO MUCH.  One thing has shone through...their attitude!  They have been hilarious, cheeky, hard working, resilient, tenacious and eager learners, who ALWAYS try their best.  Their manners have been impeccable (other grown ups in the school comment on their manners daily!) and nothing has stood in their way.  

More than ever, I am so proud to be the teacher in Willow and I send my HUGE thanks to all of the families for joining us during this rollercoaster of a year.  I cannot wait to see and hear what Willow get up to in Year 1 and will miss them so much.

Willow - you are wonderful!


One of Mr. Gumpy's passengers came to visit us today! Meet Theo!

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!

Knowledge Organiser - Summer Term 2021

Autumn Knowledge Organiser

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:
