PE is on Wednesday and Fridays.

Your child needs a full PE kit including:

  • Blue Dallam PE Top
  • Black Shorts
  • Trainers

Please note: school no longer allows children to wear pumps for PE.

You may also wish to send in a black / navy blue jumper or hooded top 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. 


Outside Play

Every day in Willow Class, we use our own outdoor area and the forest school area to play, explore and learn. Please could you send in a pair of wellies to be kept in school as it can be muddy. 



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.


Look what we're doing this term...

Our project question (linked to Geography) this term is...

How can small actions eventually change the world?

As part of our project work the children will learn skills such as: map reading, keys, locating mountain ranges and rivers. We will also be exploring physical and human features by comparing the UK to Spain.

Climate change will run through this topic and we will discover how this is affecting the world we know. 


This term we will be focussing on time with Mrs Bonser and mutliplication and division with Mrs Brabin. 

You can support your child by regularly logging on to either Numbots or TT Rockstars. 

Project Letter - Spring Term


In English we will continue to work on our phonic knowledge, sentence building and letter formation through differentiated Read Write Inc. books and activities. 


We will also be looking at Fairy Tales.

We will reading the story of The Three Little Pigs and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We will use talk for writing strategies to write our own version of the story. After half term we will go on to look at Non-chronolgical reports. We will write reports about pigs and wolves linked to the Three Little Pigs text.

Our Science Topic this term is:


First we will be learning about classification keys and how to group animals. We will be going outside to explore living things in our school environment. Our science topic will be closely linked to our project question when we recognise that environments can change and how this can impact on living things. 


Reading books will be sent home on Monday and need to be returned on Friday. They do not need to come into school every day.

Your child will bring home two books at the level they are currently reading at and we ask that you hear your child read as many times as you can during the week. Reading and sharing the same book can greatly improve reading fluency and sight vocabulary. 

Please remember to sign your child's homework diary so they can work towards a Reading Champions mention on the weekly newsletter,
