Space Day 7th October 2021
Lets Explore Space Together
This virtual celebration of all things Spacey at STEMFest in Space was beamed live to Willowcroft on the 7th October 2021.
As a school we got stick in with all things space. We watched live sessions from the space centre and got very creative in class. Some children made their own shuttles and others learned how to speak Russian! You can see some of our fantastic photos below.
We had a fantastic line up of speakers and learned so many new facts, why don't you test us at home? If you want to check out last years event, or watch some of the speakers you may have missed from the day, follow the link below. You can still get hands on with STEM Ambassadors who support the international space industry, discover all about space missions, learn about the career opportunities within the space sector, listen to inspiring speakers and hear from real astronauts!

Spelling Bee- 15th October 2021
As part of the LEAP curriculum at Willowcroft, we encourage our children to know they have the power to change the world. In Term 1, Year 6 took this challenge head on and designed their own Spelling Bee for KS2. They made their own slides using Google, planned the spelling words for each year group and presented the whole thing. Although they were brave standing up at the front, the children who took part were just as brave. They had to take on their class and the winner two spellers went through to the final.
The top two spellers went head to head against their age group. The winners from each year group took then on each other! After a very tense final, we did eventually have a winner. Although I must say, they were all winners!
Everyone who part won points for their house. Well done everyone.
