Welcome to Willow Class

Home Learning:

We now have a dedicated Home Learning email address that you can use to ask questions regarding your child’s learning whilst at home.  Please note that this is to assist you in your home learning and not to answer specific questions like ‘What is the answer to question number 4?’   We are anticipating that you will receive a reply within 48 working hours.

The email address for this is:  homelearning.hfed@educ.somerset.gov.uk

We are also setting up an ‘Achievement Wall’ to display what your child/children have been doing at home. Please use the school’s email addresses to send us information or photographs of your child’s work.  Please put the words ‘ACHIEVEMENT INFORMATION’ in the subject box. We look forward to seeing what they have been up to.

We are made up of 9 year 1 children and 19 year 2 children.

Our teacher is Miss Smith and our TA is Mrs Wainwright. Mrs Vallis also helps our learning.

We are very excited about learning and playing together this year.

Good morning Willow class, 

Today's home learning you could do some work on fractions. You have some activities in your pack, however Year 1 you could find 1/2 or 1/4 of amounts practically using objects in your home i.e. toys, teddies etc. Remember 2 equal groups when finding 1/2, 4 equal groups to find 1/4..

Year 2 we looked at 1/3 last week see if you can find 1/3 of an amount, remember you need 3 equal groups, again you could do this practically or you could draw it i.e. draw 27 spots split them into 3 equal groups.

Make sure you read something today a home book or your school book. You could discuss the book whilst reading with an adult or older sibling- predicting what might happen, discussing any words you are unsure of etc.

Phonics play is currently offering free access. This is an excellent resource many games and activities to practise recognsing sounds, reading and spelling. Most recently we have investigated the ear sound (phase 5). Year 2 the phase 6 has a link to spelling play lots of great resources linked to spelling patterens.

Hi Willow class,

Today why don't you try choosing 5 common exception words (see below for lists there is a year 1 list and a year 2 list) and putting them into a sentence. Also try and find a way to help you remember how to spell the word- break the word up. Year 1 children you could practice your number writing. Year 2 you can practice 2,5 and 10 x tables. You could begin making a Easter/spring garden (instructions are below). You can use a paper plate or a metal tray as a base, it does not need to be a flower pot. Try to redd something today, this might be part of a home book or school book.

Keep safe
