Welcome to Willow Class

The wonderful Year 5 and 6 children in Willow Class are taught by

Mrs Pontet, ably assisted by Mr Kellett, Mrs Larkins and Mrs Weliwita.

Friday 14th January

It's been such a busy week that we haven't had time to take photos!!

Reading and discussing Native American creation stories, skilfully practising our hockey skills, learning how to create safe online profiles, comparing climates across North America using graphs, finding out about the human circulatory system, creating pop art inspired by Lichtenstein..........


For your homework this week you have a maths task as well as some thinking about why the UK is such a great place to live.  We will be comparing the UK to North America in upcoming lessons, so get your thinking hats on and consider some positives about each place before we discuss as a class.

Two members of class were in the top three of the Phase in TT Rockstars this week. Well done!

Yay - we're back in school learning! North American geography, colour mixing and Talk for Writing for starters.

Spring Term 2022

Concepts - Liberty, Diversity and Peace

Our key geography focus is North America, and although we don't get to go on a school trip here sad,

we will be learning a lot about the people and places that make up this amazing continent. 

Our first Talk for Writing unit will be native American tales and learning about the beliefs of the first Americans on how the world came to be. 

In music, we will we listening to many American composers work and in art, pop art will be a key focus.

Maths will continue to build on our previous learning on the four rules of number, including decimals, fractions, percentages and algebra (year 6).

The human body will be our focus in science - the circulatory system and how to ensure we have a healthy body.

PE lessons will help develop our hand and eye co-ordination skills with hockey and badminton and in RE we will continue learning about the Muslim faith.  We are hoping to visit Maidenhead Mosque in February to enhance our understanding.

It's going to be a busy, fun packed term and I can't wait!

7th January English Homework - Talk 4 Writing. 

Practise retelling the story using the text map.

Don't forget to bring a reading book to school everyday. 

You always need your pencil case with 'Super Six', (Handwriting pen, pencil, rubber, sharpener, ruler and glue stick) all named, a refillable water bottle, a reading book and a positive attitude.

P.E. is on Mondays and Thursdays, so please wear your school PE kit on these days.
