Dear Parents/Guardians,

Willow Class have worked incredibly hard in the Autumn Term and have remained focus and determined in their learning, always eager to expand their knowledge and do their best. Spring term is shorter but packed full of new learning that I know the children will embrace.

The theme in the Spring term is The Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, a history based topic that I know the children will enjoy! In Design and Technology we will learn about and design Viking boats and in English we our text will feature some trolls and giants to keep with the Viking theme. There will also be some surprise guests and school trips this term which will be revealed nearer the time.

In maths we will continue with multiplication and division and then move on to money, measurement and fractions. In English we will be looking at a variety of texts and we should try and expand out vocabulary knowledge. Reading at home everyday will help with this. Good readers make good writers!

On Wednesday, Mrs Leader will continue to teaching the class Science and RE, and this year the children will also have an hour of Spanish per week taught by a specialist.

PE will be on Monday afternoon, so please make sure your child has their PE kit in school ad it washed each half term.

Like last term, homework will be set each Monday and must be completed by the Friday of the same week. You can help with homework but please do not do it for your child. Please fill out your child’s reading records when you hear them read each night.  All children should have their reading record in their book bags, please ask your child to collect it from school if it is left in class. (Homework is extremely important. Please refer to the Oak View homework policy for more information regarding homework.)


I will always make myself available to discuss your child’s progress and any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to catch me at the end of the day or to arrange another time to meet.


Miss Nadia Notarpippo and Miss Woodall
