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). We are supported by our  LSA's,  Miss Watson (Monday - Thursday) and Miss Rosewood (Tuesday and Friday). 


Our topic for the term is 'London's Burning!'. Please look at the knowledge organiser below to find out what the children will be learning, exploring and discovering.


Homework will be linked to either English or Quest 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. 


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 weekly spellings in the children's spelling folders and on google classroom. Spellings will 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.


Best wishes,


Mrs. Hamilton



An overview of our intended learning can be found below.

What have we been up to in Willow Class this term?

We had fun counting in 3s today.

Harry and Lola spotted the pattern is odd number, even number, odd number, even number, when counting in 3s.

We did a scavenger hunt in Forest School and we had to find objects with different properties.

In drama we acted out the fire spreading through London. We took turns to be the flames and the buildings.

In our Quest lesson we had to find information from different sources. We were trying to find out, When The Fire of London started? Where it started? and How it started?

In Science, we found different ways to sort a mixed collection of objects.

We had fun creating self - portraits out of nature in Forest School.
