General Information

A warm welcome to Willow Class! Our teachers' names are:

Mr Dawes
Mrs Fulcher

Things to remember!
- P.E is on Friday- please ensure your child always has their kit in school and that jewellery (earrings, necklaces, etc.) is removed.

- We encourage children to read 3 times a week at home. Please remember to sign their reading diaries.

-Please ensure all your child's clothing is clearly named.

-Homework Menu will be given out each term so please complete as and when. We are currently focusing on spelling therefore spellings will be given out every Friday and children will be tested the following Friday.



In English lessons we focus on traditional tales, chronological reports and instructions. We use Talk for Writing to help children learn stories and imitate the language they need to write their own story. 

This term we will be looking at:
- Meerkat Mail

- Who flung dung?

-The tiger who came to tea

We focussing on sentence structure, including capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We are including adjectives in our writing and reading our work back to check it makes sense. We are using conjunctions, such as 'and', 'but', 'or' and 'because'. We are also working on handwriting and spelling.


We are using Maths Mastery to ensure all children develop strong foundations in maths. This year we will secure our number bonds to 10 and 20, we will add and subtract numbers using a number line, and learn how to add 10 more and 10 less to any given number to 100.

This term, we will continue to practise using all four operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 

Our topics

We follow the Alumno Curriculum and this is the bases for all our topics throughout the year.

Our geography lessons will explore meerkats and why they aren't suited to the north pole. We will look at animals that live in hot and cold climates and why they are suited to their environment. 

In science we will start by investigating light and dark. We will look at shadows by creating shadow puppets and learn about different light sources.
