  • Gingerbread

    Published 12/02/18

    In Willow Class we have been learning all about the story of the Gingerbread Man. It has been so much fun and we have done a huge variety of cross curricular activities. We have done LOTS of baking, using our skills to read and follow recipes and weigh out our ingredients. We have played the gingerbread man maths game on the computer, we have sequenced the story of the gingerbread man, sang about him, done dot to dots of him using our counting skills, coloured him in, made him, built lego models to safely get our gingerbread man across the river and made puppet shows of the story. Enjoy looking at some of our pictures below.

  • The day¬†Willow Class met Dina Asher Smith

    Published 05/12/17

    As a whole school project, every class has acknowledged Black History month. One day when Willow class were drinking their milk, somebody noticed a black athlete on the milk carton. This triggered lots of interest and questions for staff to investigate with the children, We discovered the lady on the carton was Dina Asher Smith, a young British athlete. The children quickly fell in love with Dina, wanted to be like her, run like her and even meet her, so we did the next best thing! Mrs Hopper showed the children the magic of green screening and produced a video of Willow class running with their idol Dina. Please watch the video below!

  • Picasso Blue Period

    Published 05/12/17

    This half term, we have been learning about the Picasso Blue Period, where Picasso painted all his pictures in the colour blue. The children looked at lots of different pictures and discussed how the pictures made them feel and how they felt the people in the pictures looked. The discussions that they had were amazing and they said that the pictures "looked cold" because they reminded them of "ice and winter." They said that the people in them "looked cold, sad, hungry and lonely."

    We showed them a picture that had a blue man with a brown guitar and posed the question... "Why does the man love his guitar?" The children again discussed this and produced this fantastic answer, "because the guitar is not blue, it makes him feel warm and happy."

    The children were then asked to produce their own version of "Mr Speed's Blue Guitar" using just blue, grey, black and white and the results were just super! They have made a stunning display. We are so proud of what the children have produced and achieved. Mr Brooks, Assistant Head Teacher, has been to see them and he thinks they are just brilliant!

  • Baking Bread

    Published 17/10/17

    After visiting Green's Windmill and learning about how flour is made, we have been busy baking bread in Willow Class. We bake a different kind of bread every week. One week we made hedgehog bread and we needed to use scissors to cut the spikes into the dough. Children use a wide variety of skills when baking. The experience is rich with learning opportunities and involves using all the senses.

    We had a tennis coach come to visit us from the tennis centre. He taught us some new skills and presented the children with a certificate and an invitation to engage in free tennis sessions at the tennis centre. Since his visit some of the children have talked about going with their parents to the taster sessions and having a great time.
