Welcome to Willow!
We hope you had a fantastic summer holidays and are ready for another exciting year ahead! This year you will be embarking on another series of amazing adventures which could have you exploring not only the length and breadth of the globe but also time itself!
This year we have a number of trips and residentials to look forward to: in October, we will be going to Cadbury World as part of our Mysterious Mayan Mission; Year 6s have their week-long Ingleborough residential in December; and, in the Summer term, the Year 5s could have the opportunity to experience our newest residential at Herd Farm.
Of course there are also the countless dressing up days we have scattered throughout the year - the first of which, Roald Dahl Day, is just next week!
We hope you are as excited as we are so let the fun begin!
Lets meet the team:
Our first exciting adventure of the year started with a message from a famous American explorer, John Lloyd Stephens. He informed us that he built a time machine to go back to the time of the ancient Mayans. These mysterious people lived many years ago and not much is known about them. He asked if we wanted to go with him… of course we said YES!
Our Star of the Week for this week was Chloe S!
Our British Values Award this week went to Jayda who won the Mutual Respect Award! Well Done!
