Welcome to Willow Class
Hello, I’m Mrs Ellel and I am privileged to be Deputy Headteacher and Class Teacher of Year 6 (Willow Class) at Whalley Primary School.
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, I am always happy to help.
Spelling Investigations will be sent home every half term supported by literacy work on a Monday which will help us throughout the week. Each Wednesday, maths homework will be sent out; currently we are particularly focusing on applying their known number facts to solve more complex and real life problems. Over the course of a half term, the children will be issued with approximately three creative tasks to undertake in their learning journals. These will be sent home on a Friday with the intention of encouraging the children to recap and further explore an area or topic that we have been looking at over the week.
In Year 6, we read frequently throughout the week, whether it is individually, shared reading or in a guided reading group. In Willow Class, we know the importance of reading to help us improve in other areas of learning. So reading for at least 10/15 minutes every day would be very beneficial. Books can be changed in school any day of the week; please ensure book reviews are completed in order to receive another book.
We are currently undertaking P.E. on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. Please make sure that children always have their outdoor and indoor kit in school.
