A beacon of hope on the hill; A small school making a big difference

Willow Class – Year 2

Willow Class – Year 2

Hello and welcome to Willow Class!

Miss Beardshaw is our teacher Monday to Friday and our TAs are Mrs Chaplin Mon-Weds and Mrs Perrett on Thursdays.

In Willow Class we love to learn, play, discover and explore together.

Our mornings consist of phonics, maths and English lessons followed by a fun and nurturing wider curriculum focus in the afternoons. We love to read and have lots of opportunities to do so throughout the school day, whether this be in small groups or a 1:1 session with our teachers. We have creative and engaging lessons with lots of opportunities for hands-on activities and we love getting involved with all the school-wide activities as well!

Welcome to Term 3

Welcome back everyone, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year. We have lots of exciting things planned this term.

In maths we will be consolidating our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and use appropriate strategies to solve reasoning and problem solving questions. We will then be moving on to fractions and will learn how to find 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 of a shape or number. Our class novel this term is The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. In English we will be writing our own story based on The Building Boy by Ross Montgomery, we will then move on to writing a report all about Chinese New Year. In geography we will be studying our local area and in RE we will be learning all about the Christian story of creation.

As always, it is imperative that children in Willow Class read at least 4 times a week at home. Children must bring their book bags in on Friday ready for a change of book.



Reading at Home

It can be really tricky knowing how to support your child with reading so we have made two videos to give you some ideas on how you can help. It is also good to read the same book with your child at least 3 or 4 times, this enables them to develop fluency when reading a book that has become more familiar.

During the week beginning 1st March 2021 we enjoyed a whole week of book themed fun to celebrate World Book Day. See the video below to hear Dundry teachers reading some their favourite stories and poems.
