Welcome to our class page. 

Here you will find regular updates of what we have been up to in class including our Samba lessons with Mrs Thompson. 


Things to remember: 

Our P.E days will be on a Monday and Friday. We will be focusing on dance and gymnastics. 


Homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday. Part of your homework is to read three times at home and record this in your reading record. You are also expected to practise times tables each week. 


Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday. We will review them the following Friday. 

After hearing the traditional tale The Gurt Wurm of Shrvage Wood and find some dragon eggs around the village, we decided to create our very own dragon inspired art work using clay.

The Moon Up Close. This is the first piece of our art project looking at the moon this half term. To start with we looked closely at some detailed photogrphs of the moon and found that we were able to identify lots of features such as crators and trenches. Using chalk and/or oil pastels we were able to create these fantastic pictures. Keep checking back for our next piece.

Now that our clay models have dried, we have spent some time painting them. More photos to follow.

We have been exploring the featues of instructions in our English sessions this week. This came in handy when we looked at the question, Did the Vikings ever play games? It turns out they did. One game in particular was called Hnefatafl which has some similarites to chess. As a class, we followed instructions resulting in us making our own Viking inspired chess pieces out of clay. We attempted to use a technique called score and slip to help stick pieces of the clay together. They have done a fantstic job so far. Our next step is to decorate them once the clay has dried.

A selection of photos from this week. We have discussed our class story, The Saga of Erik the Viking. Made predicitons and asked questions. We have also started to make 3D shapes using nets in preperation for when we build our own castles.

This year the Willow Class will be represented on the school council by: Imogen and Ben. They were elected by their peers and we linked this with the British value of democracy.

The children went on a hunt to find some facts about 5 different types of bear last week. We used this as a hook into our class story, Five Bears.
