What an amazing morning of maths learning. We have had so much fun this morning. We have done some Olympic maths. We have made olympic medals we can eat, counted how many times we can do olympic activities, making numicon patterns and exploring all the other maths activities in the classroom.
We had a look at our countries flag, we talked about what we would like to do if we were in the Olympics and read a story and listened to some facts all about Mo Farah. We even did the Mo bot.
We were very lucky today as we got to see some real Olympic medals and hold some things that have been to the Olympics all over the world.
Today we celebrated the children’s achievements in their new class. It appears everyone has had a fantastic first week and really enjoying finding new friendships, getting to know their Teacher and learning new things. Well done to all our winners and we really enjoyed our Olympics theme.

In Y1today, children moved along to a familiar song and tapped back a set of beats, using a musical instrument 🎶
Today our Y1 numeracy learning was about sorting objects and preparing to count. Objects can be sorted by their shape, colour and size. We also realised that objects can be sorted by their type. We discovered that when we line our objects up, it makes counting easier.
In KS1, we enjoyed matching 🇫🇷 vocabulary to the correct sporting activity. It was surprising to see some of the words were very similar to our English words for sports!
Our new Y1 children enjoyed collecting scores in our Olympic themed activities yesterday.
What a great way to practise our number skills!
We are always going for gold🏅
Today we held our first ever Willow Vision, competing against our four schools in a competition. All the children sang beautifully in French. Congratulations Roughwood, what a performance. We already have ideas buzzing for next year.
In Foundation 2 the magical certainly happened today at the Fairy Party. The children enjoyed every second. This term they found a fairy door which had appeared in their classroom. The children received letters from the fairies and wrote back. It was so exciting to see their smiles today. https://youtube.com/shorts/GYdlZ-CbtHk?feature=share

We couldn’t believe how much our oceans can be polluted. We enjoyed reading the story of Finn and Skip who wanted to go fishing but couldn’t catch any due to all the rubbish. They were so kind and thoughtful and helped to remove all the rubbish from the ocean, even though they just wanted to […]
We had such an interesting afternoon thinking about our oceans. We first thought about what we expect to find in them and then looked at what things find their way there that don’t belong. We couldn’t believe how much pollution changed our oceans. We thought about how we could remove some of the pollution but […]
