Willow Class 2019-20

Welcome to a new year in Willow class, we are very much looking forward to working with your children, and you, over the coming year.
 
The children are settling in well and we have a range of topics and activities planned for the year ahead. This term we are studying Ancient Civilisations, starting with a focus on Ancient Egypt. We hope that you will enjoy sharing in your children's learning. Do come in and see us if you have any questions or queries.

Centenary tree planting 
On Remembrance Day, year 6 were invited by Forestry England to a tree planting ceremony in Ellwood, to  mark the 100th anniversary of their organisation. It was particularly poignant as we remembered all the foresters who went to war and did not return, with a two minute silence.
The children also planted an acorn and wrote tributes to trees with the Forestry England educational team. We are hoping to join in more local projects with them in the future.
Year 6 started the year with their cycling proficiency sessions. Congratulations to them all on achieving a good standard of road safety, we hope they will continue to remember the rules and keep safe on the roads.
26th September is European Day of Languages and Willow class celebrated it with a taste of Germany. We learned how to greet each other in German, linked up with Germany via Skype and enjoyed tasting some of their food.
In computing we have been looking at tessellating patterns in the environment and creating our own using art software online.
