Welcome to Willow Class

We love to learn through play! We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on seven areas of learning and development: Personal, Social and Emotional, Communication and Language, Physical, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

This half term our topic is Traditional Tales!

We will be familiarising ourselves with a variety of traditional tales including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the Little Red Hen. We will be thinking about the characters, the settings and retelling the stories using maps, props and puppets. The traditional tales will also provide opportunities to explore the wider curriculum including construction, cooking and artwork. For further information please see the curriculum update below.

Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday. Please keep your child’s reading book and diary in their book bag and sign it each time you hear your child read.

PE takes place on a Monday and a Thursday.


Please log in to your child’s Tapestry account to see what they have been doing.
