Welcome to Willow Class pages where we hope you will find out all about the youngest members of our school:
Year R. Willow Class has 30 children and is taught by Ms Bailey and Mrs Cook they get up to all kinds of fun learning!
Willow Class have had a brilliant start to their school days, settling quickly and soon becoming confident in daily routines, new friendships and all aspects of school life.
During Term 1 our topic was ‘Marvellous Me’. The children created wonderful self portraits, thought about the different members of their families and learnt all about different types of houses. We went on our first trip out of school to post letters to our families and saw lots of different house types on our way.
As we moved into term 2, we had a new topic of ‘Journeys’. Outside, our role play area evolved into a train station and the children had great fun creating trains and rockets from our large construction materials. ‘The Magic Train Ride’ quickly became our favourite story, taking us to Cake Land, Fairy Land and even space. As the children showed such a particular interest in space, we continued to focus on this, basing our learning around the Jill Murphy story ‘Whatever Next’. As we thought of questions to ask an astronaut and researched the answers, the children also learnt how to make a sandwich. We enjoyed these alongside real life astronaut food at a special space picnic.
We all enjoyed a very special journey as we went on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway to visit Santa! We all had a brilliant day and wrote Santa some superb letters to say thank you for our presents when we got back to school.
As our term has nearly come to an end we have starred in the KS1 nativity play ‘A Star Is Born’. The children did a brilliant job, singing, dancing and acting and are now getting ready for a very well deserved Christmas holiday.
