Purplemash email - Willow class, remember that you can stay in touch with each other and contact Mrs de Lancey-Wheeler & Mrs Woodroff too. It would be lovely to hear what you are doing to keep busy.
Hello Everyone 23.3.20
Most importantly, we hope you are all safe and well.
In addition to the Home-Learning Packs, we would like to draw your attention to another online learning platform, as recommended by our advisory team.
This features English and Maths activities for each year group.
Dear Willow Pupils and Parents 18.3.20
Today your child brought home a Home Learning Pack, which contains a range of cross-curricular activities to explore in order to support reflection, consolidation and continued learning over the next period of time.
The school will be sending regular updates and information. Keep an eye on the website and class pages too.
We wish you all well and take care.

Welcome back Willow Class,
We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are now well rested and ready to travel back in time to Ancient Greece. Please take a look at the cross-curricular map below to find out what lies ahead.
If you have any resources at home that would support our topic please bring them into school. Thank you.

The Great Escape!
Willow class was investigating air resistance in science. We looked at the way that the shape of an object can increase or decrease the resistance it has to water and air by watching the Bloodhound experiments on the internet. Streamlining an object can decrease its resistance; however, sometimes it is helpful to increase air resistance, for example, when falling from a height. To find out how much air resistance it would take to protect an egg, Willow class designed parachutes to carry their eggs safely from the top of the climbing frame down to the ground. Have a look at the picture to see what happened when we tested them!
Willow's science topic - electricity
Q: What did Willow Class do on the afternoon of Thursday 19th May?
A: They made quiz boxes!
As part of their science topic on electricity, children in Willow class put all their electrical knowledge and design skills to the test to make quiz boxes. Each box poses a question with a choice of answers. Press the button next to your answer and see if the bulb lights up! If the buzzer sounds, you've made a mistake! It was quite a challenge to make sure the circuits were correctly wired and even more of a test to finish the box neatly so that all the workings were hidden away inside. Have a look at the pictures to see how they got on.
Get writing over the weekend or finish off your garden/nature inspired poem, to be handed in on Monday 14th March please, with name and year on the front.
Remember your entry forms should be in on Monday 7th March, if you are entering the competition.
Go on, give it a go!
For our work on teeth, we carried out some experiments on different makes of toothpaste. These are similar to the experiments carried out by scientists who develop toothpastes for sale in the shops. We tested them for foaminess and taste. We made our tests fair by testing the same amount of toothpaste for the same length of time, and we recorded our results. Have a look at the pictures of our tests!
