Welcome to Willow Class 2017-18
To celebrate the Royal wedding we had a day filled with royal learning. We solved phonics mysteries, coloured in royal multiplication pictures and wrote acrostic poems about the happy couple.
We then had our very own class weddings involving brides, grooms, bridesmaids, best men and a Father of the bride. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating as a class!
For World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite book characters to raise money to buy new books for the school. We wrote instructions to make under the sea cookies in the theme of Dougal's Deep Sea Diary and then we got to eat them! We also had a very special visit from Captain Gas which was very exciting.
This term we have been learning all about meerkats. We have researched using ICT, written reports, painted, acted and been to the zoo. We thoroughly enjoyed this topic, especially our trip to Noah's Ark Zoo Farm.

Congratulation to him and his Star Party!
