Hello Willow! I hope you're all ok and keeping safe! I'm missing school lots and seeing all of your smiling faces every day. Look below for a little message from me!
From 1st of June there is a new page for you to go to find some home learning activities. Go to the 'Class Pages' page and click on the rainbow icon named 'Home Learning from 1st June'. You can still CLICK HERE for the old activities.
Purple Mash and a big well done!
I've been onto Purple Mash to see what you've all been up to and I'm so impressed with the work you've done - it's absolutely brilliant! If you've handed some work in I've left you a comment so you could log on to see what I thought! I've also uploaded some great pieces of work I've seen below so you can get some ideas from other children in Willow and see what they've been up to. Well done to everyone for all the hard work you've been doing whether it's on Purple Mash, Times Table Rockstars, competing the SPAG, maths or reading work we've been setting, doing some of the other activities we post or coming up with ideas yourselves. I'm very proud of you all! Mrs Oldroyd :)
A message for our lovely Year 6 children
To all our year 6s,
As SATs week arrives, it is not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year never came,
The displays all still up, walls full of maths ‘rules’,
But year 6 is very different, right now in schools.
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.
Place value, fractions, the times table drills,
Inference, retrieval, in depth reading skills,
Past present, progressive…and all the SPAG terms,
Across the subjects of many you’ve learned.
Fear not though, the SATs won’t happen this term,
Remember tests don’t measure everything you learn,
Primary subjects are varied; you’ve always tried your best,
And many of those skills you’ve gained can’t be defined by a test.
So, here at Westwood, you’ve made us so proud,
We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud…
‘’Year 6 you amaze us, you’ve come incredibly far…
And we don’t need a test to see how amazing you are!’’
Welcome back to Willow!
We hope you had a good half term break and weren't put off by the weather.
The Year 6s are now halfway through their last year at Westwood with both SATs in May and the end of year play, Wizard of Oz, fast approaching.
Our last adventure, Rockin' All Over The World took us on a tour of globe with stops in Russia, Nepal, India, Japan and Australia but it's not time to go home just yet - we have one more destination in mind along the way! We are stopping off to visit the bustling city of Rio and the mysterious Amazon Rainforest!
Find links to our previous adventures at the bottom of the page.
Lets meet the team:
Our Star of the Week for this week was Chloe W!
Our British Values Award this week went to Ami who won the
Mutual Respect Award! Well Done!
