Hello and Welcome to Willow Class

 

We are all enjoying our work on lighthouses. We have been exploring materials. We investigated what would float and what would sink. Then we made our own lego boats and had a boat race! The children made their own start and finish flags for the race. Then we made paper boats and tested those too. 

 

We hope you enjoy the photos below, showing the fantastic work the children have done.

Book Bag Reminder

Please can your child's book bag be brought back to school every Monday.  Thank you!

 

Our Topic

This half-term we will be continuing our topic, 'Marvellous Me'.  We will be exploring how we can keep ourselves fit and healthy.  The children will be given opportunity to lead the learning.  Please follow us on Twitter to see all the fantastic work in Willow Class. The children have been enjoying 'The lighthouse keepers Lunch' and other books in this series.  They wanted to create lighthouses which we did in our cutting and sticking area. Next, they wanted to make their own lighthouse. We have been designing these this week and have just started to make them.  Thank you to all those who brought in a cylindrical item for your child to use as part of their D.T project.

P.E

P.E will be on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please can your child some to school wearing their P.E kit and trainers on these days.  On a Tuesday we will be focusing on gymnastic skills.  It would be a great benefit to your child if they could work at home on putting on (and taking off) their own socks and trainers to help them during these sessions.  Thank you!

Best Wishes

Snack

We have snack time every morning in class. Please see Friday’s email for information on how to sign up your child to our school fruit tuck club.  This will start on Monday 19th September (week 3) so your child will need to bring a fruit snack each day for the first few weeks of term.  Alternatively, you can send in your child each day with a fruit snack instead of signing up to the club. There will be milk and water freely available.

Things to remember:

Water bottle

Please send your child into school each day with a labelled water bottle.  We will be sending home these bottles each evening to be washed at home, refilled and then returned to school the following day.  The water bottle needs to be filled with water.  No squash or juice please!

Spare Clothes

A spare change of clothes (e.g. pants and socks, trousers/skirt, t-shirt…) will be very useful.  Please send the clothes in a small named drawstring bag and we will keep this on your child’s peg in case your child needs a change of clothes during the day.

coat

Please send your child in with a raincoat every day. The weather is very changeable, so a sunny early morning can quickly turn into a rainy day.
