Welcome to Willow Class!

Teachers – Miss Chelsea Burrows


Autumn Term 2019

Welcome back everybody; we hope you all had a good half-term break.

This half term we will be encouraging the children to think about the type of things they celebrate – such as birthdays, Guy Fawkes, and Christmas – and most importantly, why they celebrate it! Through topic work, we will be learning about why Christmas is important to Christians. We will also be finding out about Diwali and why it is important to Hindus. Please see the Celebrations topic web below for more information about what we’re planning to get up to. Then, towards the end of term you will be stunned to hear we will be throwing ourselves into Christmas – prepare yourselves for glitter-covered and excited children coming home!

WILLOW NEEDS YOU! We are hoping to go on a couple of trips this term, so if you could help with any trips or visits then please let us know and we can give details.

We would just like to take this to say a massive thank you to all the parents and children for a fantastic first half term. All of the children worked incredibly hard and have made brilliant progress. Also, thank you to those who attended parents evening – should you wish to catch up with me during the week then please book an appointment and I’d be happy to meet with you!

A few reminders for the next half term:

  • Please remember to label all uniform – we have had many jumpers left around and we are not able to find their owners!
  • Mrs Lunn will be with us every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon; this may change due to Miss Burrows’ courses but the children will be informed of any changes to the timetable each week.
  • Full PE kit must be in school each week as the children will now change for both PE sessions: Tuesdays with Mr Tyrell and Friday with Miss Burrows

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions.

Miss Chelsea Burrows, Mrs Angie Lunn & Mrs Jacqui Hohl
