Welcome to Willow Class
Joining a new school or settling can be a challenging time for very young children and it is important that their needs are considered at all times. Our school ethos has a strong pastoral focus and every child is encouraged to care for each other. - We are a school family. Each child in our classroom is unique and as such they develop at different rates. We value effort and delight in seeing the children achieve even the smallest step of success.
Learning is fun! You can not teach experience, so where possible we like to allow children to get hands on and experience things for themselves. Much of our learning is done through hands on practical activities. Each child in our classroom is unique and as such they develop at different rates. We value effort and success no matter how small the step.
Literacy skills are life skills essential to developing every area of our learning. We dedicate a great deal of time to improving basic phonic, spelling and sentence skills work. Reading is vital and pupils take home reading books each week to practice at home, as well as being heard regularly in school. We ask that you take time to support your child in their learning to read and listen to them on a regular basis.
In maths the children have basic mental activities each day together with plenty of opportunities to use number within continuous and enhanced areas. Again support from home is vital to developing basic skills such as number recognition, addition and subtraction.
