Willow - Year 2

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. 

In Willow you will find teachers Mrs Hamilton (Monday to Thursday) and Mrs Chandler (Friday) and LSA Miss Cook (every day). We look forward to welcoming you to school in September in our new classroom, the Pine Lodge.


Our topic for this term is 'Turrets and Towers'. We will be finding out who built the first castles in the UK and why. 


Homework will be linked to either our topic work or will be practising an area of the maths curriculum linked to our learning in class. It will be set on a Thursday and will be due in on the following Monday. It will be set on google classroom which your children will be able to access at home. It can also be handed in here to minimise what is coming into school. There will be further information on this when the first piece of homework is set.


We use Spelling Shed to practise our spellings. A spelling list will be put on Spelling Shed each Monday and there will be a copy of the spellings on google classroom. Spellings will then be tested at school the following Monday.


Reading books will come home daily, with the expectation that the children will read to an adult each night.


We have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please could the children come to school in their PE kit on these days. I would suggest an extra layer might be advisable, as we will be outside as much as possible. Children also need to bring a coat to school with them each day, as we will aim to be outside for break come rain or shine.


If you need to contact me this term, please use my class e-mail, willow@eastsomersetfederation.co.uk and I will be happy to answer any questions or queries.

This is how we made our sandwiches.

We used post-its to innovate our stories of Kassim and the Dragon.
We are making a story map of Kassim and the Dragon and are looking forward to innovating the story next week.
In English we have been learning the story of Kassim and the Ferocious Dragon. We had fun making the dragon's cave in Forest School.

Look at these fabulous collages of our planet that the children have made.
