Willow Class

Welcome to Willow Class

Classteacher: Miss J. Dandy

Welcome to your last week of the half term!  


We are so proud at how well your children have settled and grown in confidence - what superstars!  

This week, we are reading 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne and exploring more about the settings of the story.  If you would like to support this at home, choose some favourite books and explore WHERE the characters go.  Do any of them visit the same places?  


Below, I have popped some activities that might be of interest to you all over the half term break. 


Don't forget that our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday in Willow, so do make sure that any earrings are removed on these days, please.


The children always have access to their plastic, sports-style water bottle in the classroom - please make sure that they are filled with water and not squash.

Autumn 1 Maths KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts):

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!

Here is how we pronounce the first sounds we learn in Reception.

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!).
