Welcome to Willow class!
The topic for this half term in Willow class is ‘weather and seasons’. The children in reception will be learning about the four seasons. They will also be looking at different types of weather that we have in the UK. The children in KS1 will be learning all about our climate and comparing it to countries closer to the equator and those countries closer to the poles. We will also be looking at different types of weather and how data about weather and temperature can be measured/collected.
Our science topic this half term is called ‘Young Gardeners’, all of the children will have opportunities to grow and care for their plants and in addition the children in KS1 will be looking at different parts of the plant, what plants need to grow, germination and different ways that seeds can be sewn. If your child would like to complete any research or if they have
done anything that they would like to share relating to our topics it would be very welcomed.
We will be focusing on Dance in our PE sessions this half term. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every Friday. Your child will also be taking part in Forest Schools every Wednesday afternoon. Please could you ensure that your child brings suitable warm clothes, a minimum of 3 layers, a waterproof coat and strong boots or wellies (not trainers) each week.
If ever you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to come and see me. I am very happy to help in any way that I can.
