Welcome to Willow Class!
Willow is one of our Reception classes which provides children with full access to the areas of learning in the classroom, whilst easing children into more formal learning in short bursts. Learning is based around a creative curriculum, providing children with exciting learning opportunities and new concepts; covering the Development Matters 2013 criteria. All children have access to play based activities to build up a wealth of experiences, and to keep this new and exciting, the classroom layout evolves with the children, enhancing their engagement with learning.

Phonics is taught daily following Letters and Sounds, which focus on enabling children to build up their knowledge of letter sounds, whilst working on reading skills such as blending, segmenting and phoneme manipulation. Mathematics is taught as a whole class teaching activity and a 1:1 setup with an adult, whilst the use of specific resources in the designated Mathematics Area allows children to work on mathematical concepts in a play based way.

Our weekly PE lessons will take place on a Wednesday and Forest School will be every Thursday morning. Please ensure your children have wellies and waterproofs in school as we may go out at other times during the week.
We usually start sending reading books home around October half term. Reading folders will then be sent home daily. Please bring these into school every day.
