Willow Class

Welcome to Willow Class!

Teachers – Mr Baxter and Mrs Lunn


Summer Term 2018 (Second Half)


Where has the year gone? In the final half term of this school year Willow Class will be looking at Minibeasts. Here is our topic information – we hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this half term. (Click to enlarge)


Foundation Stage



Year 1 – coming



We continue to be very well supported by parents sparing a half hour here and there to hear our children read in the mornings; thank you if you have been able to help – it makes a notable difference in readiness to read.

We are have caterpillars and a wormery in the classroom to help children learn about life cycles and observational science. How exciting!

Before we know it, our Foundation Stage children will be Year 1s and where possible we are trying to prepare them for Year 1 expectations. Likewise, our Year 1s will soon be Year 2s. If they don’t do already, it is a good idea to get your child to sort out their own bits and pieces in the morning – snack, water bottle, coat etc – so that they have greater independence, ready for September. If at all possible, see if they can build up to entering the class alone – obviously you are always welcome but it’s an idea to be as prepared as possible for the new school year in September. Many thanks for this.

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions or if you need to tell us anything and do remember to let us know if someone new is collecting your child from school. We need to be informed of this so we are confident that we are sending your child home with the right person.

Thank you for your support

Joe Baxter and Angie Lunn
