Mrs Pickering

Willow Class


Hello and welcome to our class page for Willow. In Willow Class, the teacher is Claire Pickering and the teaching assistants are Zaynah, Lee and Hayden.

Special Breakfast happens each Friday where we have lots of tasty food, such as, pancakes, scrambled eggs, toast, beans and lots of fresh fruit which the children love. We give our certificates to our Rights Respecting Superstars, Amazing Readers and Amazing Mathematicians and we also find out which Duty Bearers have earned an extra special mention too. 


Please try and read with your child by sharing one of the interactive texts on MyOn or by using their reading book if you have requested one to be sent home. If you are unsure of your child's login details for MyOn then please contact a member of the class team who will happily assist.

Your child has access to a range of online learning apps to aid them in their skills and knowledge. Encourage them to log in regularly and see if they can beat their previous scores. Again, if you are unsure of any login details then please do contact us and we will share these with you.
