Welcome to Willow class. We are a mixed age year 5 and 6 class. Our main teacher is Ms. Fenning but we are also taught by Mrs. Lloyd.
In our class there is a strong ethos of working hard to achieve our goals. We are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and to give everything our best shot. We practice a ‘growth mindset’ and know that perseverance, and a willingness to make mistakes, will result in our best learning.
We are inquisitive and eager to learn about the world around us: we take an enquiry-based approach to learning and are taught how to be resourceful – and how to conduct our own research – so we may find the answer to any question. We read with increased analytical skill, write with increased awareness of our reader, process mathematical problems with increased fluency and reasoning and we often partake in bursts of music and singing, whenever there’s an excuse to fit it in to our day!
Throughout the year, we are very busy with lots of exciting opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom, including a wide range of practical science, D.T. and art activities as well as weekly PE and outdoor learning sessions. We also enjoy going on school trips including a highly anticipated residential during the Spring term!
Our teachers are immensely proud of how hard we work and of the example we set for the younger children in the school.
