We hope you have had a lovely summer.
Mrs Brown, Miss Ellway

Fieldmice and Hedgehogs would like to welcome you to Reception.
Our class mascots are William and Spike and during the first term they will be introducing us to life at Willow Primary. Over the course of the year parents and carers will get to meet our mascots when each child has a turn to take care of their class mascot for the weekend.
We will learn about Willow’s ASPIRE values and our first topic will focus on making friends and how we are all special and different. We will think about how we can work together and help each other. We will also look at people who help us in society.
During our school journey we will develop Learning superpowers following the example of the learning Superheroes.
Ivan Investigator, Cora Collaboration, Eva Evaluation and Ricky Resilient.
We will then look at the changing seasons and ask the question:
“Why do squirrels hide their nuts?”
Spotting signs of autumn and investigating how wild animals prepare for winter we will record our learning through a variety of media and materials.
During autumn term we will also explore cultural traditions and special times discovering how and why we celebrate them.
