WELCOME TO WILLOW CLASS

Welcome to Willow's Class page. 

Willow class is taught by Miss Rees and we are supported by three amazing teaching assistants; Mrs. Daisley, Mrs. Mortimer, Mrs. Ashby and Mr. Sharp. 

Here you can find information about upcoming events, weekly homework and important notices.

If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to come and find me on the playground at the end of the day and I would be more than happy to help.

 

 

Our topic this term is London.

 

 

NOTICES

Forest schools is running on a Thursday afternoon.  The children will need wellington boots and clothes to change into that they don't mind getting muddy!  If any of you would like to volunteer to help out during the sessions, please let myself or the office know.  We would be very grateful.

 

Key dates:

End of term - Thursday 29th March at 1.30pm

 

PE

 

This term Willow class will have PE on Tuesday and Wednesdays (weather permitting), although please ensure labelled kit is in school at all times.  Our lessons on Wednesday are being lead by Miss. Turner, a coach from Reading Football Club, as part of the Primary Stars programme.

 

Maths

 

This half term most maths homework will be completed on Mathletics.  You can access the website through the link below.  The children each have an individual login that they can use to access the tasks set for them.  Homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday. If you do  not have access to a computer at home, please let me know and we can arrange a time in school for your child to complete the work.

 

Reading

Reading homework should be recorded in the children's reading record books. The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week. This can be a book from home or their school reading book.

 

Phase 1

Easter Holiday Homework

 

Our topic next half term is ‘What makes the earth angry?’ In preparation for this, we would like you to research a natural disaster and create an information page about it (poster, fact file or non-chronological report). You could choose from one of the following or find out about another natural disaster:

  • Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii

  • 2004 tsunami in Thailand

  • 2010 earthquake in Haiti

     

    Please include answers to the following questions:

  • What is a natural disaster?

  • What happened?

  • How did it effect the landscape?

  • How did it effect the community?

     

    Please hand in your work by Friday 20th April to your class teacher. Your finished work can be handwritten or typed and you can include pictures if you wish to.

    Have a lovely Easter!
