Kempsey Primary School

To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!


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.

Below you will find a stream of photographs/ videos and work that reflect the children's experience in Willow class. Most recent activities are first....

As part of our work on deaf-awareness, we have been learning about the life of Helen Keller

Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.The story of how Keller's teacher, Annie Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become known worldwide through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.

This animation has been put together using 'The Lost Thing', a story by Australian author Shaun Tan.

On Tuesday 8th January we were visited by Harnaam Kaur. She visits schools encouraging children to celebrate who they are, using her own experiences to motivate and inspire.



After her visit we asked to children to think about what made them special. 



World War II


The children were so enthusiastic during their about WWI that we thought we would capture the moment and do some work about WWII. We are learning about some of the key events and themes of the war such as evacuation and rationing. Our work in English will be based on the book 'Good Night Mr Tom' and Anne Frank's Diary.


The Topic homework has been sent home and is available in the letters section of our class web page.

Welcome back!


We are really excited to back after our summer break. The children look so smart in their new uniforms and ties and are already showing great commitment to their learning. Life in the hall is working well; we appreciate the children's patience whilst we wait for our new classrooms to be completed.
