Willow

 We are very excited to welcome you into Willow Class. We have lots of fun and exciting things planned for the year.

In addition to myself, we have Mr Boardman and Mrs Romero  helping us every day. Mrs Noonan will be teaching the class every Wednesday Afternoon and I know she has planned some interesting science and P.E topics.

After the first half term your child will receive homework on a Monday which will need to be completed and returned by Thursday.

Children should try to read their reading books most days and your support with this is hugely important. Please discuss characters, events and any new vocabulary to further develop your child’s reading comprehension skills and when the book is completed, comment and sign in their reading diary. When your child has finished their books they will need to place their reading folders in a box in the classroom and we will then change them. 

Willow Class P.E. day is Wednesday and the children should come to school in their P.E. kits on this day. Please make sure that if your child has their ears pierced, they remove earrings on P.E. days and also long hair should be tied up.

If you have any concerns about your child, please let me know.

I am really looking forward to continuing your child’s journey with them.
