Willow Base team:

The teachers in Willow Base are Miss North and Miss Earley and our fantastic Teaching Assistant is called Mrs Mynard.

Information about Willow Base:

Miss North and Miss Earley work together to plan fun activities linked to our topics.

Our base is set up with a range of resources, learning boards and working walls to help us to become independent learners. Every half-term, our topic changes and the teachers gather lots of ideas from the children before planning for our next topic of learning.

During the Spring and Summer terms, Willow base have access to a range of clubs such as dance, games, cookery, jewellery making, sports clubs and many more!

To become successful learners inside and outside the classroom we follow the 6 Rs (Responsibility, Resilience, Respect, Resourcefulness, Reflection and Reciprocal).

Willow base children are rewarded with gems for showing these 6 Rs and work towards a gem jar reward day of their choosing.  If you are recognised showing the Rs during the week, then you may be chosen to do an extra special rainbow or pot of gold activity during choosing time.
