Willow Blog - Year 6
Wednesday 15th December 2021
Today in Year 6, we have been learning about Christingles and how Christians believe that kindness is important to allow us to spread hope. The orange represents the world (which is lonely on its own), the red tape represents the blood of Jesus and his love for everyone and the sweets and fruit represent all the good things that God gives to us throughout the four seasons. When the candle is lit, it represents Jesus being the ‘light of the world’. We all lit our candles outside and thought about our hopes for the future.

Willow Class has a fantastic time at the Christmas Fair!
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
Willow Class celebrated anti-bullying week this week by discussing a variety of words (tolerance, respect, inclusion, diversity and difference)
We discussed the key message this year "One Kind Word" and what this meant. Children in Willow came up with a list of kind words they would used.
Each child then wrote an acrostic poem, focusing on 'Kindness' and completed mindfulness colouring to support our well-being.
To end the week, we made our pledge "I'm putting my hand up and pledging to put an end to bullying."
ART CURRICULUM DAY!
Friday 21st October 2021
Willow Class took part in many different activities for art curriculum day today. We started by watching a video on how to draw bubble writing and then children had a go at it themselves. We then learnt how to draw using 'perspective' and choose whether to draw houses or trees. You can see from the fantastic examples how well the children did!
We were lucky enough to take part in two virtual workshops, learning how to make a comic book front cover, as well as drawing manga/anime.
The children had a fantastic day and what brilliant pieces of work they produced!
