Willow Class

Willow Class is a class of 13 Reception children, taught by Mrs Hanson and supported by Mrs Stott.

This half term in Willow Class our topic will be ‘ticket to ride’.

We are going on a fantastic journey to find out about different types of transport. We will think about the transport we have taken to get to school, into town or go on holiday and the similarities and differences between them. We’ll talk, draw and write about real and imaginary journeys, as well as learning about endangered animals using the book ‘Oi! Get off our train!’ As part of Understanding the World, we will explore floating and sinking using miniature boats and find out about friction by rolling toy cars down ramps. We will learn about the importance of road safety and how to stay safe when out on a walk. We will be designing and making our own junk model vehicles, learning different ways to join materials and using thinking frames to help us consider the vehicles features as part of the planning process. We will make a model town of Carnforth and program the Beebots to move around from place to place.
