Year 1- Willow Class

Welcome to Willow Class! We are excited to be in Year One and are pleased that we are not the youngest children in the school anymore!

Our Class

There are 30 children in Willow Class. We are taught by Mrs Balls and Mrs Ford is our Teaching Assistant. Paddington Bear is also a member of the class and every Friday he goes home with one of the children and they record their adventures in a special book.

Our Curriculum

In the Autumn term, we are learning about Space and hope to visit the Leicester Space Centre in November which we are very excited about! We are also learning more about our world in Science as we will be discovering all we can about the seasons and weather.

We love Storytime Phonics and enjoy sharing the books and practising different digraphs and trigraphs in our writing. As the Phonic Fairy says, ‘Reading makes you brainy!’ and we are learning to enjoy reading more and more books.

Life in Willow Class

As members of Willow class we all strive to be the very best that we can be. We try hard to listen carefully to each other. With hard work and determination we can achieve great things! We have learnt that it is ok to make mistakes because this helps our brains grow.
