Our Topic this term is... One World
Our first whole school topic this year is 'One World'. We will be thinking about ways that we are all linked across the world and encouraging the children to understand the importance of looking after the planet we live in.
If you have a budding Eco Warrior, tell them to listen carefully in assemblies as we will be kicking off our topic by looking for volunteers to create a Willowcroft Eco Council. The council will help think of and lead initiatives to ensure our school has green street-cred.
Years One and Two are getting ahead of the game as we have already organised a 'Litter picking day' around the week of 2nd October, when we will don our safety gear and go in search of rubbish around our school area. The aim of this activity is to consolidate the children's learning about recyclable materials and how much the environment is affected by litter that is dropped. We will also hopefully see the Biffa truck come to collect our litter on Friday 6th October!
In week 2, the children will have a taste of international culture and how it links to our topic, with a Bollywood day. Later in the term, they will have the chance to create poetry, still on our topic theme, and link in with National Poetry Day.
The term ends on Friday 20th October with a HUGE day for all of Willowcroft as we hope to run a 'Recycled' fashion show in which the children can show off outfits that they have created for their class teachers, made entirely out of recycled materials (keep your eyes peeled for some stylosh pictures of this event!).
And in between all of the excitement, we will be getting down to work in Literacy and maths. Your support to read with your children as often as possible (ideally every day) will make all the difference to their progress this year.
We look forward to working with you.
Days to remember...

- Meet the Teacher is on Wednesday 13th September from 3.15pm(ish)
