In faith we learn and grow together


Welcome to Willow Class! 

We are year 1 and year 2. We are taught by Mr Starling and we have Mrs Stead, Mrs Buck to help us. 


Here are a few things you might want to know about us: 



Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. On PE days, the children come to school in their PE kits, which is a white top, blue or black jogging bottoms or shorts, a blue or black sweatshirt and trainers. Long hair should be tied up and earrings should be covered or taken out. 


Class Dojo

Class Dojo is the platform we use to share information regarding your child. We keep parents and carers updated regularly posting wow moments that the children share with us in class. 
Class Dojo can be downloaded as a free app onto any iphone or android phone. 
The class teacher will send you a code using the given email address or mobile phone number for you to connect to your child's account. Class story will be used for any full class information or home learning activities the class teacher may set. 
You will only be able to see your own child's portfolio of work and dojo points. 
This is also used to message your child's class teacher. 


​Children are encouraged to read at home daily as well as in the classroom. Year 1 and 2 children will be encouraged to take ownership of changing their book when needed. They can earn stamps on their cards to get a special prize from Mrs Barden!

Year 1 and 2 -  Reading book daily and 1 pieces of maths homework weekly. The maths homework will be set on a Wednesday and is due in on the following Monday. 

Autumn Topic: Movers and Shakers 



This project teaches children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They will learn to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.
