Our Class saint is St. Valentine and our class Virtue is Reflection.
In Willow class we aim for the children to be happy and confident in all that they do. We aim for the children to thrive in learning and friendship and love coming to school each day. Everyday is an opportunity to learn and develop as we try to be the best that we can be. We believe in ourselves, celebrate our differences and encourage each other everyday. We are all a part of the Willow Class family.
In Willow class we organise our learning by building upon the skills that we have learned in EYFS and in Year 1, as well as learning new skills, to ensure that we are continually progressing in each area. Through our creative curriculum, we ensure that the children learn a range of topics and grow their skills through those topics. This school year we will be focusing on the following topics;
Geography - My School Environment (Autumn 1)
History - Remembrance Day (Autumn 2)
Geography - Wonderful Weather (Spring 1)
History - Florence Nightingale (Spring 2)
Geography -Let's Go On Safari (Summer 1)
History - Dinosaur Discovery (Summer 2)
These exciting topics show a full coverage of the National Curriculum, as well as providing learning opportunities that will capture the creativity and imagination of our children. It is through these topics we endeavor to Believe in God, ourselves and others.
In Willow Class, nurture is at the forefront on our minds - through lamps and fairy lights we promote a calming and cosy classroom environment with low lighting and a relaxed atmosphere to help the children feel at home. Our class environment is something that the children adore and it is clear to see the impact of this throughout the school day. We promote children to have a sense of ownership over their learning space with each child having an area of the classroom that they are responsible for.
We plan on lots of exciting trips and learning opportunities throughout the year, which will engage the children in their learning and ensure they have the #bestdaysoftheirlives, thus inspiring writing, enthusiasm and a quest for learning!
