Welcome to Willow Class!


Welcome to Willow Class! We have a ‘can do’ attitude and love learning in lots of different ways. Our class has children from Reception to Year Two and we all help each other to be happy learners. Our lessons promote our creativity and independence, often learning through investigation and problem solving.

This half term our topic is 'Don't Stop Believing!' and we will be thinking about our own beliefs and how people's beliefs are often different. We will be discussing the importance of showing respect for other people's beliefs and also researching famous figures from art, history and sport; finding out how their beliefs have inspired them. Keep an eye on our page for updates!

Dance Festival

I was incredibly proud of the fantastic performance Willow Class gave in front of a huge audience at Anthony Gell! The children worked hard to learn, practice and perform a routine which the lovely Mrs Forrester from Anthony Gell taught them. It was so nice to see the children not only enjoying their performance, but also watching dances from other children, all the way up to year 11. Once again their enthusiasm was fabulous- well done!
Here is a video of the rehearsal...



A Day in the Life of a Mill Worker


Willow Class enjoyed a fantastic trip to Cromford Mills where they played the parts of child mill workers. They were super stars; getting stuck into the activities and impressing the adults with their beautiful manners and hard work. 


Thank you to all the staff at Cromford Mill as well as Mrs Gostick and Mr Holt for all your help and enthusiasm.


Take a look at some of the action from a thoroughly enjoyable day...

OUTDOOR PAINTING FUN! Willow Class had a fabulous time changing colour tints and using natural materials in their paintings. They took advantantage of the wet paving stones to help them blend, leaving a beautiful effect. What messy fun! A big thank you to Mrs Gostick for your creativity and organisation.

We got out and about in Matlock Bath to find out more about our local area...
