Welcome to Willow Class

Willow 1Willow 2


Working Together, Aiming High, Shining Brightly
Let your light shine before others - Matthew 5:16

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.

In Willow Class, much of the children’s learning is through play. They are encouraged to explore the open-ended resources in the environment, developing their interests, imagination and independence. Throughout the week, children also take part in small group teacher directed activities to consolidate or extend their knowledge.

This half term our topic will be: 

All About Me 



We will be enjoying a range of stories, and non fiction texts focusing on our bodies and the importance of being unique. 

We will move onto Autumn themed stories and celebrations including Harvest, Diwali and Christmas.


PE Thursday this term.

Please can children have PE kits in school for those days.

Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday. Please try to read with your child as often as possible. Please keep your child’s reading book and diary in their book bag and sign it each time you hear your child read.

Library books - Your child will bring home a library book from school each Friday. 

We will be visiting the Library Bus (Bedford Borough) on a Thursday afternoon (every 4 weeks)
