Willow Class (Reception/Year 1)

Welcome to Willow class

Willow class is currently made up of 26 children, 10 reception children and 16 year 1 children.

The class teacher is Mrs Murgatroyd and the teaching assistant is Mrs Marsden. On Tuesday mornings Mrs Hathaway and Mrs Pilkington teach the year 1 children music and P.E. Mrs Pilkington also teaches art and R.E in Willow class on a Wednesday morning.

We are all very pleased with how the children have settled during the first half term and we have an exciting new term ahead.

This half term our main topic theme is ‘toys’. In Literacy we will be focusing mainly on the story of Babushka as well as Paddington Bear and the Polar express (towards Christmas time). In maths the reception children will be focusing on ordering numbers, 2d shapes, addition, subtraction and non-standard units of measure. The year 1 children will be focusing on sequencing, measuring, simple fractions, money and time.
This half term the children will be creative and expressive within their other subjects as we link them to the significant times of year such as bonfire night and Christmas.

We look forward to the half term ahead.
