PE is on Thursday.

  • Pumps for indoors

You may also wish to send in a jumper and pair of jogging bottoms as we will still be outside as the weather turns colder.

Home/School Link Books

Home - School link books are checked by a member of Willow Class Staff daily. If you have a message to send into school, your child's link book is the best place to do so.

Please also make sure that your child has their link book in with them each day, should we need to write a note home. 



As we are  a Healthy School, your child's snack should consist of food such as toast, breadsticks, fruit, yoghurt or vegetables. Drinks should be either fresh fruit juice, milk or water. Cereal bars are not to be sent in for snack.

Toast is available from school at a charge of just £1 for the week. The payment is to be paid on a Friday for the following week.

If you would like any help with this, please pop into the school office or call for some advice.

Our learning question for the Spring term is:

Why do people live here?

This project will have a geography focus.

We will be learning about and comparing hospitals in the past and in the present. We are asking the children to think about why we remember Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We will be helping the children to research and find out facts about these significant people and the events surrounding their lives.

Our project will work towards a comparison of the lives of both of these women in history and how they are remembered.  

You will have received a copy of our Autumn Term Project letter in your child's book bag. You can also download a copy below.

Our Science Topic this term is: 

Forces and Magnets

We will be learning all about:

What is a force?

What makes things move faster or slower?

What are magnets used for?

What materials are magnetic?

Who was Michael Faraday and why do we remember him?

We will be making  magnetic games and designing moving pictures on our STEM days.







Reading record books are checked daily. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every night and sign their Reading Champions record.

Books are changed every Monday but must be returned on Friday so that they can be quarantined for the weekend following covid 19 policies.

A number of our children struggle with comprehension. You can encourage your child to look at the pictures and try to think about what is happening. Try to ask a few questions about the story they have read to support them with this.

After every 10 reads your child will earn a 'Reading Champions'  mention in the newsletter. 

Guided Reading

We are working on comprehension skills as part of our guided reading groups. 

Some of the children have been using Nessy  to help them with their reading and comprehension. They should also practice this at home. Logins for this have been sent home but if you need them again pleasedrop us a note in the home/school link book.
