Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

Welcome to Willows.

 We have two teachers who work with the class throughout the week.  Miss Snelling works on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Querelle works on a Friday.  Willows also have a Teaching Assisstant, Mrs Chilvers, and a Classroom Assistant, Miss Moore. 


Beside the Seaside


We will be heading to the seaside this term.  We will be using lots of lovely stories to support our learning, starting the book 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.  We will be sailing to the South Pole to help the penguin, but which is the safest route across the world?

Commotion in the Ocean

We will be writing poems using Commotion in the Ocean as our inspiration.


In science we will be exploring waterproof and absorbent materials to help penguin get home, and we will be learning about the different kinds of creatures that live in the seas and oceans.

Willows Christmas Medley

We have been reading the book Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers and we were inspired to create some solar system art using chalk.

We have settled into being back at school really well and have been enjoying playing with our friends and learning lots in Willows. In maths we have been learning to recognise and write numbers and doing lots of counting.

Great work Willows!
