St. Paul's Church Visit
On Wednesday 9th May, Willow 1 and 2 walked to St. Paul's Church to have a look at the important features within the it as part of our RE topic. When we got there we met Amos, the Church Warden. He told us lots of information about the church and then let us have a good look round. We looked at the altar, pews, the lecterns, the font, stained glass windows, the pulpit and the organ - this was our favourite. Amos even played it for us!
Willow 2 had a fantastic morning with Aqua Explorers who brought a rockpool to the class! Dave brought along some sea creatures which inluded a starfish, a crab, some mussels and a spider crab as well as a few other surprises. We were very brave and enjoyed spenting time holding the different creatures, which at some points seemed a bit scary!

Play in A Day
Willow 2 had a great day working with Dan from Altru on producing a play to show to their parents. They worked together, learning all about the different oceans of the world and some of the sea creatures that lived there.
Play in a Day
On Thursday 1st March, Willow 2 took part in a Play in a Day led by Barry from Altru Theatre Company. We played lots of games to help keep us concentrate and keep focused and we learnt a lot about The Great Fire of London. It was tricky remembering all of the lines and actiing positions but we managed it! At the end of the day we performed it to our grown-up and Key Stage 1.
On January 25th, Willow 1 and 2 were visited by two African Drumming experts from Drum Roots. The children were taught how to play the djembe drums and about how they are traditionally used in African celebrations.
Willow 1 and 2 worked very hard throughout December learning songs and lines ready to perform their Christmas Nativity to their parents in Church. Here are some pictures of the performance.
In November, Year 2 visited 'The Lowry' to take part in an artists workshops. As part of their visit they became artists, learning how to draw in the style of L.S. Lowry, looking at the famous artist's own work and creating a piece of artwork based on his pieces.
The children in Willow 2 spent some time researching facts about the Queen. They worked in teams to report back their findings.
Mr. Howell visited Willow 2 to tell them all about his memories of watching the Queen being crowned when he was a child. Willow 2 listened beautifully and asked lots of questions about the day.
