Welcome to Willow!
The willow tree symbolises fulfilling wishes of the heart, learning from the past, inner vision and dreams. It symbolises inner wisdom and an open mind with the stability and strength of age and experience.
Like the tree which gives the class its name, we hope that the children in Willow Class will realise their dreams this year. For some of the pupils in this class, it will be their final year at KPS and we hope that they will be good role models for the younger pupils in our school. Willow Class is a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. It is taught by Mr David Willetts, Miss Pam Hudson, Mrs Bennett and Mrs Guyatt.
Welcome back! We hope you have all had a great summer. We are really excited about the year ahead, which we aim to make as engaging and interesting as possible. This year we are going to be encouraging the children to think 'deeply', looking below the surface and beyond the obvious. We are very much looking forward to building positive relationships with the children and parents to make the very most of the year. Please do come and see us with any questions or concerns. Mr Willetts and Miss Hudson.

To kick off the year we are going to be taking part in a whole-school topic, using 'Playground', an extraordinary book by James Mollison which is a collection of photographs from playgrounds across the world. We will be exploring the images and using them as a prompt for discussions about the children's playground experiences and how we can improve our own provision at KPS. In addition we will be focus on geographical skills of understanding the reasons for differences between human experiences in different locations. We will also be using the images to inspire some art, with a focus on the children's drawing skills!
A couple of images from the book can be seen below and for more information go to James Mollison's website using the link here.
