Forest School 🌲🌲🌲

 

Willow Class were very excited to go to their first Forest School session this week.

They learnt about the Forest School rules and then had a go at playing '1,2,3 where are you?'

 

 

Lots of children enjoyed having a go on the swing. They found it quite tricky to get on to begin with but showed lots of perseverance. 

 

They all enjoyed some hot chocolate and a biscuit before going back to the classroom 🍪 ☕️ !!

Cody said, "I like Forest School, I'm going to come back next week!" 

Isla said, "Forest School is so much fun!" 

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year! 

 

Welcome back to the Spring Term in Willow Class.

Please open the link below to find out what topics and skills Willow Class will be focusing on this term. 

Willow and Saplings Christmas craft afternoon

 

We invited all our families for an afternoon of Christmas craft fun. The children had the opportunity to practise lots of creative skills like, cutting, printing, decorating, drawing and threading. 

 

 

Look at these yummy biscuits!

Willow Class were amazing in their Nativity with Nursery and KS1. They sang all the songs, did all the actions and performed brilliantly on the stage in front of their grown ups. Well done Willow Class! 

 

 

 

Remembrance Day 

 

Willow Class used their rolling, shaping and molding skills to create some play-dough poppies for Remembrance Day. 

 

 

 

The children thought that the poppies would look nice on the grass. 

"It's like the poppy field!" said Natan 

Diwali

 

 

 

Willow Class have enjoyed learning about the festival of Diwali. They watched a video about Jessica and her family getting ready to celebrate Diwali. The children enjoyed making their own Mendhi and Rangoli patterns as well as dressing up in special Diwali clothes and placing Diva lamps around the classroom. 

 

 

We even learnt how to do some Bollywood Dancing 💃 in the hall with Jenny the dance teacher!

Fireworks! 

 

The children in Willow Class have been very excited about all the fireworks they have seen in the night sky. We explored the colours and shapes of fireworks using printing. 

 

First we explored print with a variety of objects to create different shapes and textures. 

 

 

Then we made our own shapes and textures by creating our own 'String Prints.' We thought about the shapes of fireworks that we had seen in the sky. 

 

"I saw a swirly one, it was blue and gold," said Isla 

"I like the spiral ones," said Jonah 

 

Halloween 

 

For Halloween Willow class enjoyed exploring an enormous pumpkin!

 

 

They also were very excited to attend the Halloween disco in the big school hall!

 

Willow Class Trip to the Wyre Forest 

 

 

Willow class had an amazing day in the Wyre Forest. The children were all excellent ambassadors for our school, behaving beautifully and being polite to members of the public. Well done everyone, your teachers are very proud and are looking forward to planning more trips for you this year.

We enjoyed looking at the animal sculptures that we found on our way around the forest. The children were able to use what they have been learning at school to help them name and talk the animals.
We found the Gruffalo ... he was asleep! We tried lots of things to wake him up, shouting, tickling, but he was still fast asleep!
We enjoyed our picnic lunch and even had time to explore the play area before we came home. Some of us were very tired and had a little nap on the way back, just like the Gruffalo!

 

 

 

We are learning to write our names ...

 

Look at our repeating patterns! 

This week Willow Class have been learning about Autumn. 

Here are some photos from our Autumn walk.
