Such an amazing two days of English – The pink lines are sentence stacking, one sentence is taken from each child and at the end we have a class shared write as well as individual ones – very creative ideas so far!

A good Friday afternoon of PE – we were looking at pacing, and how this can be done with pairs running slightly different length circuits.

Some great group in both science and PSHE. Science was looking at the theories of flat Earth and spherical Earth and the supporting evidence to give a definitive answer . In PSHE the class came up with a set of class rules based on what kind of class and environment they want Willow class to be.
