Welcome to Willow Class!
Your teacher is Miss Lloyd.
In English this week, we made our own alien out of playdough and described their personality! We needed to decide if they were a nice or not nice alien. Next week we will write a character description about them.

This week in history we learnt some more about Guy Fawkes and what he did. We went through a timeline of his life and the events leading up to the 5th of November. The role play area turned into the cellar in houses of parliament (which included our gunpowder from last week). This is now a permanent feature of the role play corner!  (The tables were the tunnel leading up to the cellar)
