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 Africa!

To begin we will be reading the texts ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The Leopard’s Drum’. We will think about how Africa is different to where we live and which animals live there. Children will also have opportunities to explore African music, dance and artwork.


Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. 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.
