Willow Weekly Blog - 14/10/2022

Another wonderful week in Willow!

In literacy this week the children planned a Stig of the Dump style chapter based on the novel, planning, editing and writing about their characters that woke up in the Stone Age! Willow base definitely has some authors-in-the-making!

For Maths this week Willow children showed great resilience in their learning when adding 3-digit numbers, using the column method as well as a range of other strategies to tackle some tricky problems.

In Science this week the children built on their knowledge of animal diets and learnt about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores, comparing human and animal diets.

Throughout the week we have enjoyed lots of story time, learning about Black History heroes, our wonderful Harvest Festival, recapping our Stone Age knowledge in History and learning all about crescendos in music. We also had some special visitors (AFC Bournemouth’s coaches) delivering a PSHE workshop in which the children learnt about racism on and off the pitch. 

Enjoy your well-deserved rest Willow!
