Reception Class 2019

Welcome to Willow Class 2019-20

Watch this space - once consent has been received by parents (via induction forms)  we will post photographs of 'Willow's Learning Journey' 


In EYFS we set up provocations. Provocations are items or activities that inspire, create interest and foster a hunger to find out or try something new. Most provocations are themed to our topic, child's interest or to practise a skill.

Quite often parents see what we have provided and comment that they had things at home that they would have donated, had they known that they were needed. So, we are setting up a wish list. We are not asking anyone to go out and purchase anything but if you have any of the following at home, and you are willing to donate them, we can make very good use of them. The list will be updated regularly.

Bags of gluten free flour (could be out of date, as it won't be eaten)

Bags of rice flour (won't be eaten)
