Wondrous Willows

Wondrous Willow Class

Year Reception 2023-2024

 

                                    Welcome to Wondrous Willows Class!

 

Teachers: Miss Jones and Mrs Archer (Wednesday)

 

 

This half term our project is "Come Outside". During this project we will be investigating local journeys and commenting on weather, culture, clothing and housing. We will be thinking about recycling and how we can care for the natural world around us and exploring changes in living creatures, the leaves and the seasons!

 

In our Literacy we will be using a Talk for Writing approach with a model text of "Room on the Broom". This story tells the exciting tale of a witch who is thankful to three animals who help her not only to find her belongings but to fight a fire-breathing dragon too!
