Welcome to Willow Class. We are a class of 28 children and are taught by Mrs McKenna. Mr Bullock is our Teaching Assistant and Miss Rodgers will also be in the class as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant.
Willow class have had a creative start to the new year, as they all had the opportunity to create an Egyptian-style drawing for our topic this term: Ancient Egypt! Using pencil and oil pastel, the children were all able to create some fantastic-looking art work.
Our focus for maths this week has been number and place-value. To help them answer the questions, the class were encouraged to try different maths learning equipment.
For literacy this week, Willow class have begun learning all about myths, fables and legends. Bringing our topic of Ancient Egypt into this, the class got the opportunity create the timeline of an Egyptian creation myth through cutting and sticking various points of the story. They then got to read out the myth to the rest of the class, using the timeline as a guide.
More creativity today as Willow class got involved in making their very own Egyptian-style hats!
