Willow Class

Welcome to our class page. It is intended to give you an insight in to all the fantastic things that we will doing in Willow this term, as well as to give you some more specific information about our class. Our topic for this term is, 'There's no place like home!' and you will find an overview of our intended learning below.

 

Our PE days are a Tuesday and alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays.  PE kit needs to be in school every day and I would suggest an extra layer might be advisable,  as we will be outside as much as possible.

 

Homework in Willow will come home on a Thursday to be returned on a Monday. It will either be linked to our topic work or will be an area of the maths curriculum linked to our learning in class. We use Spelling Shed to practise our spellings and the spellings will be given on a Monday, to be tested the following Monday. We expect the children to read at home every night.

 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Mr Calver came to talk to us about how cheese is made. We learnt about the soil and the grass that is needed to feed the cows. We then found out about what happens to the milk to turn it into cheese. It was really interesting and we loved tasting some of the Caerphilly and Cheddar cheese.

We drew maps of our walk around Upton Noble.

We love to share our reading books.

We carried out an investigation to find the best material for an umbrella. We found out that plastic was the best material that we tested.

The Year Two children had fun reading with their buddies in Acorn Class.

Our first English task was to write about the story Willy the Dreamer by Andrew Browne.

We made banana milk shake and had great fun using the bike to blend the ingredients.

Our focus in Maths is place value. We used different apparatus to represent 2-digit numbers.
