Our Vision Statement
We are Willow 4. We are at Bywell to learn and have fun. We will strive to be sensible, kind and caring role models. We will treat others like we wish to be treated. When people walk in to our classroom, they will see a calm classroom with a team of hardworking children enjoying their learning.
Our P.E days are Monday and alternate Tuesdays.
Please make sure your child has got the correct PE kit, weather depending PE could be indoor or outdoor. Trainers will be needed for outdoor PE.
Starting from Autumn term 2, we have introduced a new homework policy. This includes a requirement for your child to read three times a week, access TT Rockstars for times table practice and also practising the spellings set for that week. There will be no other paper homework set however, children are encouraged to practice key skills to further develop their knowledge. if they wish.
Children will also be set half term holiday homework with an element of art and design based on topics taught in the curriculum.
We have an open door policy on a Tuesday, so please feel free to come and see us then. If this isn't convenient then please arrange an appointment.
