Welcome back to Willow!
We hope you had a brilliant half term break and are ready for our latest thrilling adventure.
After spending last half term in the rainforests of Central America with the ancient Mayans, this time our adventure is a little bit closer to home. It is Britain, 1939, and we will be helping two children, Edwin and Nancy, understand just what is going on at this confusing and dangerous time.
There is much to look forward to this this half term as our adventure concludes with a Wartime Carol Concert on Wednesday 11th December and the Year 6s get the opportunity to spend a week at Ingleborough where they will explore dark caves, clamber up gorges and even climb mountains!
Lets meet the team:
Our Star of the Week for this week was Roisin!
Our British Values Award this week went to Teegan who won the Rule of Law Award! Well Done!
