Cherry Oak School

Working Together for Success



Welcome to Willow Class


In Willow class we love being top of the school. Being top of the school means we focus on being good role models for the rest of Cherry Oak. In Willow class, we are a class of 12 children. Our teacher is Ellee and we have Jenny, Karen and Sharon who support us.


We work very hard, every day, towards our individual targets. We have a busy timetable which includes a variety of learning activities. We are a lively bunch who love practical based activities and especially activities that get us up and moving. 

Super learning day

Super Learning Day- dinosaur races 10.03.21

When we start a new topic in English, we always start with an exciting Super Learning Day. Our new text is a dinosaur magazine article called Terrific T-Rex. We enjoyed making our dinosaur masks ready to see which was the fastest dinosaur. We had lots of fun in the hall with our dinosaur races. We were very hungry dinosaurs that chanted "we want meat!" There were some very fast dinosaurs in Willow class. 

World Book Day Challenge

World Book Day 4.03.21

For World Book Day we were set a challenge of writing a whole school super hero book. Willow class worked incredibly hard to design, paint and colour in the front cover of our book. Willow class also worked together to create our story page- and what a fantastic page they came up with! Amazing work Willow class :) 

Germany week- 17.12.20

This week in Willow class, we have been learning about all things German. We have been practicing how to say, hello, good morning, good bye and numbers 1-10 in German. We have been doing lots of activities for our Germany week this week. So far we have had a look at where Germany is on a map, decorated some German flags, made a door flag for our competition, designed our own gingerbread men and decorated some ginger biscuits... and of course enjoyed eating them!!
