British Values Week

Posted by brakefieldm on Sunday Oct 16, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week is British Values Week and to kick off the week, Willow Class will be taking part in the democratic process by voting for two School Councillors. The role of School Councillor comes with a lot of responsibility and the children will be looking for someone they can rely upon to do a good job. This will be the first year the current Year 2s have had the opportunity to become a School Councillor which shows just how grown-up and responsible they are becoming. I’m looking forward to finding out who they vote for!

Roald Dahl Day

Posted by brakefieldm on Tuesday Sep 13, 2016 Under Uncategorized

A hundred years ago today, Roald Dahl was born near Cardiff in Wales. He was to become one of the most popular children’s authors ever and we continue to enjoy his books in Willow Class.

Inspired by his book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the children designed scrumptious chocolate bars. Here are just a few examples.



James’ design is a Fizzy Whizzy Bar, which has popping candy inside. It feels like an explosion in your mouth.



Millie’s bar is called a Squishy Bar. It is strawberry flavoured and has sprinkles on top.

Uses of everyday materials

Posted by brakefieldm on Tuesday Sep 13, 2016 Under Uncategorized

In Science this term we will be exploring the uses of everyday materials; why particular materials are chosen to serve a specific purpose and how we can change materials in a number of different ways. This afternoon, we created a materials collage, using a variety of materials. See if you can spot the materials we used.

Today we welcomed some very tiny and rather furry visitors to Willow Class! Our caterpillars came in a small pot with all the food they’ll need before the begin their metamorphosis into beautiful flutter of butterflies. Tomorrow we are going to name our butterflies after a vote. I can hardly wait to find out what names the children will choose!

30 Days Wild

Posted by brakefieldm on Wednesday Jun 1, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Today is significant for many reasons; it’s the first day of June, meteorologists consider it to be the first day of summer (though it doesn’t feel like it!) and it’s the start of 30 Days Wild, a month long campaign to get people out into the wild. So what did you do today? Amongst all the report writing I’ve been busy with I took a break for a stroll beside the canal near my house. Guess what I spotted near the water? A female swan sitting on a nest. I can’t wait to see the babies!

Share what you did and see if you can answer the blog question.

Blog Question: Do you know what a baby swan is called?
