Last full week of November

Another week has flown past for Willow.

Investigators used gears to compare rotations and explore mechanical advantage.

Investigators also had their final Forest School session. It was lots of fun, with a den building challenge. The children can explain what they had to do…ask them! In case they have have forgotten, we have these pictures as reminders:

Both classes learnt about ‘register‘ in English. They had the opportunity to explore roles, with a short drama taken from My Fair Lady. We had some very interesting upper class and lower class accents! Watching an extract from the original film of Eliza having her elocution lessons was also entertaining.

Acting stars of the future:


Advent next week… get those calendars ready.


19th November

Year Six have been learning about fractions this week. They have found equivalent fractions, simplified fractions and converted improper fractions to mixed number fractions!

In literacy we are focusing on register. Having studied a section of text from The Northern Lights, the children were able to identify the differences between formal and informal speech and use this to help them draft their own speeches between a prisoner and lawyer.

Willow Explorers had their first dance lesson yesterday, they are looking forward to building on this each week.

In science we are continuing to investigate light. Willow Investigators explored light reflecting from different surface textures.

12th November

Year Six have been working hard this week to develop their ability to write a narrative for Lord of The Rings using DADWAVERS to help them. We look forward to posting their finished pieces next week.

Wednesday saw a few changes with Mr. Henry Harrison leading the school! Willow Investigators designed some Islamic art and Willow Explorers played some sports that they are not normally taught in PE. Needless to say everyone also enjoyed their extra ten minutes break.

Willow Investigators experimented lighting different types of tinder and building fires at Forest School. They were very successful and were rewarded by being able to toast a marshmallow.

Parliament week vote Poppy!

I am supporting Poppy! I believe Poppy would be an excellent Headteacher because she is kind, enthusiastic and mature. One of the changes is a big school bake off where each class makes a dish and go around the school trying all the dishes. She will welcome all the children and making the lessons fun and exciting. Poppy will go around the school making sure that everything is running smoothly. I can assure Poppy will make a great headteacher and take care of your children. Please vote for Poppy. 😊

Parliament Week, Speech, 2020

I am here today to convince you that I would be a good headteacher because Iam very fair and will depart things evenly. Iam funny, kind, mature and silly which means I will make sure that you work and have fun at the same time. Iam also very artistic and I will listen to your problems. The day starts off with art. No assembly though. Break is free time, like computing. Then after break, a big school bake of. Each class will bring ingredients from home, and cook ANY FOOD THEY WANT! You will decide which food from a vote. The people who tried to go for head will taste as well as their teams. (EXTRA POINTS FOR GOOD PRESENTATION!) next will be PE (just fun games!) after, because there are lots of math lovers in the the school, you will do half an hour of math’sAt the end of the day, you will take home a piece of food made. The winning class will get TOW bags of sweets to share out. I will make sure the school remains in control. As I didn’t get ambassador, iam hoping I get head teacher. O was debating if I should do it or not, but I knew I would regret it forever if I didn’t. Thank you for listening, Poppy
