Four fantastic certificate winners this week!

Willow class have had a fantastic fun day! I am so proud of the children for being so brave and touching/ holding the animals. We began the day by meeting lots of new animals, partied with the entertainers, got brilliant tattoos, ate some ice cream and finished off on the bouncy castles (which they even managed to get me on)! What a lovely way to celebrate the end of the school year 🎊🍦 🌟

Christmas Party Day - 16.12.21 

Birds of Prey Visit 

 

What a treat to finish off our topic ‘Do all animals need sleep?’ Today, we had a visit from Birds of Prey. We met some very cheeky owls and learnt lots of facts about them. They swooped over our heads and we even got to hold one! 

KS1 Role Play Areas

 

In each KS1 class there is a role play area. This half term our topic has been 'Do all animals need sleep?'. We have had a pet shop, zoo and veterinary surgery. Below are some pictures of the vet role play area we have at the moment smiley 

 

After Christmas, our topic is called 'Is it ever cold in Africa?'. I wonder what we will have in our role play areas next?  

Fun in the Snow!

Poo Investigation! 

 

This week we have been thinking about what different animals eat. We have learnt that there are three different groups - herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We discussed the meaning of each word and investigated poo (it wasn't real!) to work out which group the animal belonged to. 

 

Herbivores eat plants.

Carnivores eat meat/animals.

Omnivores eat both plants and meat/animals.

 

Here are some pictures of the children investigating!

Google Classroom

 

We are now putting homework on Google Classroom for the children to complete. 

There would also be learning put onto Google Classroom if the school had to shut due to unforeseen circumstances.

There has been an invitation sent for them to accept and join the classroom. 

Every child has their e mail address and password which they will need to access the classroom in their reading record book. 

I am also attaching a guide to using Google Classroom which will hopefully help you if you are new to this!

If you need any support with this, please contact your child's teacher or me (Mrs Waddell) and one of us can go through this with you. 

There are also useful Read, Write, Inc videos for the children to watch to support their learning in school. 

 

Remember: we are here to help! 

Mrs Waddell

A helpful guide to Google Classroom!

Google Classroom!

 

Just a reminder that the children all have access to the Willow Class Google Classroom. You can find their log in information in the front of their reading record. They use their email address to log in. 

 

Once logged in, if you have not done so already, you will need to respond to the invitation asking you to join the Willow Class page. Simply do this by clicking 'accept'. 

 

All homework is completed on Google Classrooms. 

 

Any questions, just ask!

Hello Everyone! 

 

Welcome to our blog! Here you will find information about all the things we have been up to in Willow Class. 

 

We had a lovely first week together, I really enjoyed getting to know the children and hearing all about them. The children settled really nicely and enjoyed being in their new classroom. Just like in Reception, we have areas within the classroom. These include a creative table, maths table, writing table, reading area, funky fingers area and even a challenge area. Each week the children complete the activity within that area, if they complete all 6 activities they can choose a special prize from my prize box on a Friday. 

 

Here are some pictures of the lovely work we did during our first week in Year One!
