          Welcome to Willow Class!



Commotion in the Ocean! 

Welcome to the Summer Term... 


Our book focus for this half term is 'Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson


This topic will allow the children to become pirates and go on their very own adventure. We will learn how pirates lived, make our own treasure maps, explore beaches and under the sea. 


Alongside our topic focus, we will also continue to develop the children's knowledge of phonic sounds through their RWI phonics lessons.  There will be a greater focus on the skills of segmenting and blending, in order to read and write simple words and sentences. Additionally, our maths focus is all about shape and pattern. We will also continue to practice subitising numbers and fluency in counting beyond 20.


In our Jigsaw PSHE sessions this half-term, we will be looking at 'Relationships'.


Our school value for this half term is 'Truthfulness'. As a class we will be discussing why it is important to to be truthful. We will also be developing our understanding of 'The Good Samaritan' the story that underpins our school vision and provides lots of opportunities for truthfulness.
