Welcome to Summer Term Willow Class!



Monday 1st June 2020             

Hi Willow Class,

I hope you have all had a lovely and relaxing half term with your family.

This week Mrs Watkins has made a video all about taking care of others and the things around us. The act of caring for someone/something else is very powerful! It shows others that you are thinking of them and it can leave people feeling very happy and loved. Maybe you have cared for the plants in your garden to help them grow, or you have a pet that you love and care for. Perhaps you have done something for someone else to show them that you care. It can be something simple like a phone call, or drawing a picture for a loved one. Little acts of kindness to show someone that you care can mean a lot to others and make their day extra special.
What can you do to show someone that you care about them or that you care for the world around you? If you do anything this week and would like to share it with me, please send a picture or a message via the Millbrook Family Room Facebook page or please email me

Below is an inspirational quote from Charlie Mackesy about caring. I have also included some photos of my family taking care of our pets, ensuring that they have a clean home and fresh water and food. There is also a picture of a cake that my children made to give to family who were are not able to see at the moment, but it shows them that we care about them and are thinking of them.
There are some Optional maths and Literacy tasks below and I will also add a purple mash task for this week. 
Have a wonderful week Willow Class, we miss you xxx



Welcome to the Summer Term Willow Class!

This term we will be learning all about Ancient Egypt.


Monday 18th May

Hi Willow Class! I hope you have had a good week. I listened to Mrs Watkins message about kindness and I am going to try to do something each day - this may be kind words to someone in my family or a kind gesture etc. Draw a heart for yourself each time you do this, how many can you get? 


Thursday is Outdoor Learning Day, so this week I would like you have a good at one of the following tasks and please email me a picture of your work:

1)Can you use a use some natural resources that you find in your garden or when you are out on a walk to make a pattern or a picture?
Have a look at the examples below to give you some ideas. You can be as creative as you want. 



2) Make a Bird feeder. Have a look at the following Cbeebies website for some ideas of a bird feeder that you can make. Then wait and see what different types of birds use your feeder. There is an example below that my son made:






We would still like you to make a leaf and a butterfly to decorate the school canteen if you haven't already done so. Please watch the following video to find out more:


Have a go at this fun quiz from Nosy Crow books and learn more about  children living in Ancient Egypt:




Watch this video to find out more about the history of Egypt


Can you tell me about 3 different facts that you learned from watching the video?
I would also like you to find out what the flag of Egypt looks like. Can you draw or make a collage of the flag and email it to me at

Have a look at the beautiful flag that Elsie made below for some inspiration!






Task 1: Each day I will add a chapter of the story 'Magic in the moonlight' for you to read on Purple Mash. There will be daily tasks set on Purple Mash for you to do in relation to the text. 


Task 2: As our topic this term is Egypt, can you draw a picture of the Egyptian Pyramids and find out something interesting about them?
