  • Hello from Mrs Payne

    Published 10/02/21, by Emily Walker

    Hello Everyone,

    I hope you are all ok and staying safe and well. I was so excited to see all the snow on Monday. I hope you all had some fun in it. It was VERY cold! We had water in the water tray and it turned into thick ice as it was so very cold.

    Last week we made some dinosaur eggs using balloons, paper and glue it was a very stick job. On Wednesday we had enjoyed our first well-being Wednesday. We read lots of books and did some beautiful colouring. We also thought about how to be kind to each other.

    There is no school next week as it is half term, wouldn’t it be great if we had some more snow!

    Stay safe and stay warm.

  • Signs of Spring

    Published 03/02/21, by Emily Walker

    Hello Everyone.

    I hope that you and your families are all well.  We miss being with you in school and look forward to when you can come back.

    When I am not at work, I try to go for a walk everyday. Recently I have been noticing some things happening. I have been listening and have heard the birds singing. There are lots of tunes being sang.  Did any of you take part in 'The Big Bird Watch'? I did and saw robins, sparrows, chaffinches, bluetits, black birds, a woodpecker, a rook and seagulls. All from my bedroom window. Also I have seen some small signs of spring beginning. Can you name the four seasons?  In my garden the bulbs are beginning to grow and hopefully, there will be some beautiful flowers soon.  Some of the trees are starting to wake up and come to life too.  Have any of you seen some signs of spring? What can you discover with your looking eyes and listening ears when you are outside? 

    In my garden, sadly we had to cut down our old apple tree.  In the space where it was, we are going to put up a new greenhouse.  We are going to grow some tomatoes. For the first time ever, we are going to try to grow some cucumbers.  I will keep you informed as to how I get on!

    Today, with my daughter we made a banana cake.  I am looking forward to trying it with a cup of tea!

    Take care, keep washing you hands, 

    Best Wishes,

    Mrs Moores

  • The World and Dinosaurs

    Published 27/01/21, by Emily Walker

    Hello Everyone! We hope you have all been doing some exciting learning at home this week. Have you had a chance to pop outside and watch or listen to the birds?  We have spent some time outside this week thinking about what things are always the same and what things change. We spoke about how the trees change from season to season and how the weather helps us decide what clothes we need to wear. I wonder if you can think of anything that changes when you look out of your window, what about the sky? Does that always looks the same?

    In our writing this week, the children decided they wanted to write about dinosaurs, so we have been busy drawing and labelling our own dinosaur pictures. Your friends in class have worked really hard to use their phonics knowledge when writing. We have also made a dinosaur world during our choosing time.

    We hope you all have a lovely weekend, and remember to spend time playing together as a family and being KIND to one another!

  • Junk Modelling

    Published 21/01/21, by Jo Macrae

    This week we have been busy making lots of different things from the junk modelling box. Some children built rockets, some built boats but a lot decided to make there own Mini beasts.


    We thought about where we could find information about mini beasts and decided we could look in books or the internet but we could also use our own eyes and hands to explore and investigate.

    We went to the conservation area and did a  Mini beasts and bird hunt to see how many different creatures we could find.

    Maybe you could do a Mini beast hunt or bird hunt in your garden or while out walking with your family or you could make your own Mini beast with your junk modelling.

    Whatever you do have fun and stay safe.

  • Aliens

    Published 15/01/21, by Jo Macrae

    Hello to our Nyewood friends learning at home. In school this week we chose to think about aliens and rockets. We heard from Bleep Blop but his spaceship had broken down so he couldn't visit us. Instead he sent 2 friends, Mip and Bip to come and see us.

    We have discovered a new dancing programme for our Wake and Shake. Its on Cbeebies and its called Oti's Boogie Beebies, maybe you would like to learn some of the dances at home.

    We have been on a hunt outside too and found lots of nature! 

    We hope you are doing amazing things at home and the teachers are looking forward to seeing the work you are sending into school.

    A challenge for you to do at home that we are doing at school as well is being able to do up our coats all on our own.

    Have a fantastic weekend. Be good and helpful to the adults in your house and kind to any brothers and sisters.

  • Happy New Year

    Published 07/01/21, by Jo Macrae

    Hello to all the Willow class at home, we miss seeing you in school. We hope you are having fun learning at home. 

    We thought you'd like to see what we have done in class. We have been acting out "We're going on a Bear Hunt" around the classroom.


    Can you guess which part of the story is which? If you don’t know the book there is an amazing YouTube video of Michael Rosen reading the book.

    Maybe you would like to try and act out your favourite story at home?

    We look forward to hearing about what you have been up to.

  • Christmas Time

    Published 18/12/20, by Jo Macrae

    On Wednesday we wore our Christmas jumpers. When we got to school we found out that Father Christmas had been and left Willow Class some presents in the cupboard. We were very lucky and we got a till and a tea-set. We have enjoyed playing with them for the rest of the week. 

    We have grown so much this term. We have settled into school, made new friends and learnt new skills. The adults in Willow Class are very proud of every single one of us. 

    We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
