Welcome to Willow Class!
In Willow Class, Mrs Carson is our teacher and is supported by Ms Buckland and Mrs Wootten.
Please read with your children as regularly as possible. Our expectation is at least four reads each week. Reading books should be read three times to build fluency and understanding.
Spellings are sent home each Friday to be tested the following Friday. Here are some ideas and strategies for practising these at home.
There is a brilliant website to help you with your maths! There are video links, great games and challenging activities at all levels to build up confidence and have fun with maths. Please give it a go!
This is an absolutely brilliant app which is free to download, it is designed for Key Stage 1 children. It is a super helpful positive way to get your children to practice their maths skills in a way that supports how we work in the classroom. It covers all four rules of arithmetic, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
What’s the app about? This first version of the app is aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils (ie, age 5-6 years). Individual one-minute tasks focus on adding and subtracting – and on ‘Subitising’, the skill of instantly recognising the number of items in a group without counting.
Hopefully you and your children will find this useful as they can practice topics at their own pace
