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 with them in 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 and milk are availble to buy from school at a cost of £2.15 per week. Toast is available at a cost of £1.25 per week. 

Snack money should be paid via the Parent Pay website. If you would like help to do this, please pop into the school office for some advice.

Look what we've been doing...

We went to Liverpool World Museum


On October 1st, we became archaeologists. We had an archaelogical dig to see what Egyptian artefacts we could find. We had to inspect each artefact and write down lots of details before we could use different sources - information cards, books and the internet - to find out more about each one.

We have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians


Maths Passports

Each child is given their own maths passport. Inside there are number fact challenges to work through. Children recieve bronze, silver and gold awards.

When you have practised, please sign inside their Mad about Maths book. After every 10 practises your child will recieve a certificate and their name will be on the newsletter.

Challenges will be set and tested every Tuesday. Please ensure their book is in school on this day. 


Useful Websites

Below are some games that you may find useful when practising times and division facts as part of Maths passport challenges.

Our learning question the Autumn term is:

Why do people do the things they do?

This project will have history focus.

We will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians.

As part of our project children will:

  • Visit the World Museum in Liverpool
  • Discover the world that the Ancient Egyptians lived in
  • Spend time in the outdoor area
  • Learn about how people's beliefs can influence their behaviour.

Our Science Topic is: 


The children will learn about this with Mrs Harrison on a Thursday afternoon. 

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.



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

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' certificate and have their name on the newsletter. Reading books will be changed every Tuesday.

Guided Reading


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