Welcome to Willow Class. We are a mixed Foundation Stage and Year 1 class. Our class teachers are Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Robinson, supported by Mrs Garland, and Mrs Dovey.
Learning themes in Willow Class this term are ‘Me and my school’, ‘On a beam of light’ and Christmas.
We will start the term learning about each other and how we learn and play together to become a great class. Our focus will be settling our new children into life in Willow Class and Cliddesden School. We will be exploring our new environment, looking at how we are all different, what we need to grow and be healthy and how we change as we grow. The Year 1’s will be finding out about where we live and our school.
After half term we will be finding out about nursing now and in the past and Guy Fawkes. We will be exploring light and dark around us. The children will investigate animals, plants and materials around them, and the seasons.
We will all be looking forward to finding out more about Christmas and its traditions.
