Welcome to Willow Class!

Teachers – Mr Baxter and Mrs Lunn


Autumn Term 2017 (First half) -‘All about me’


A very warm welcome to all our new starters and families! We have been delighted at how well all the children have settled in to their new environment so brilliantly. We are both very proud of them and are really looking forward to our year ahead.

The below grid will hopefully give you a flavour of some of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this term… All children will undertake learning based on the following but it will be tailored to their different needs and abilities.

Our topic this half term is ‘All about me’  (Click to enlarge)

Foundation Stage

Year 1

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.

A few reminders:

  • PE kits need to be left in school. Keep a spare pair of pants/tights in PE bags if you think it necessary.
  • Please remember to send your child to school with a named water bottle and a fruit snack.
  • Mr Baxter will be in Willow on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings and Fridays. Mrs Lunn will be in Willow every Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. Mrs Hohl will be in Willow to support us, every morning and afternoon.


Ideally for Foundation Stage children, sharing a book for around 5 – 10 minutes every day helps greatly with progress towards becoming a reader. If you and your child have any energy left at the end of a busy day to read together that would be wonderful! Once we have settled into school life we will be sending out the letter sounds that we’ve been learning that week. Later, when appropriate for your child, we’ll send out key words to learn on sight and words to practise sounding out.

Join Mr Baxter and Mrs Lunn in Willow after school on Thursday 15th September for a ‘meet the teacher meeting’. We will tell you about reading books, routines and this term’s topic, and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for your support

Joe Baxter and Angie Lunn
