Willow Class - EYFS & Year 1 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Willow Class!
This half term, we will be reading a wide range of high quality stories. Our focus text for Pathways is Naughty Bus. Through this text, the children will be encouraged to write lists and captions, letters and story maps.
In Knowledge and Understandng the World and Science this half term, we are learning about Materials.
Our EYFS children will be discovering with their senses, the materials around them everyday.
Our Year 1 children will be learning about everyday materials, describing the properties of everyday materials and distinguishing between an object and the material it is made from.
In Knowledge and Understanding the World and History this half term, we are learning about our own History and our own chronology. We are going to be looking at photographs of ourselves as babies and talking about how we have changed over time.
Our Year 1 children will be finding out what childhood was like for our parents and grandaprents and comparing childhood now, with childhood in the past.
Reading is key to every child's learning - sharing a book, reading a bedtime story to your child and listening to them read their Read Write Inc book helps in every aspect of school! Don't forget to sign their planners.
Please bring old trainers or wellies to keep in school for days when we go in the forest or use our mud kitchen!
