Willow Class (Yr 5 and Yr 6)

Posted on by

Welcome to Willow Class – the home of our Year 5 and 6! We love to learn and have been developing our skills as independent learners. There’s nothing too big or small that we can’t tackle and we’re never afraid to enter… the learning pit.


Please login to Tapestry through your web browser for the most up to date home learning in Willow class.

Home learning for Willow Class will now take this format:

  • Regular English and Maths learning (see below)
  • A ‘pick and mix’ of activities for pupils based on our topic this half term: the history of CRIME AND PUNISHMENT in the UK.
  • A weekly online chat as a class (Every Thursday at 10am)
  • Optional online History/Science lessons
