Willow 2022 - 2023

Miss Pimblott


Welcome to Willow class 

Our class is made up of 23 wonderful reception children. Our teacher is Miss Pimblott and we are also supported by either Mrs Harper, Mrs Bridgett or Mrs Coxon.

We are always busy bees in reception and we love learning about new topics through listening, exploring and playing.The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is based on seven areas of learning consisting of Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.

This half term we will be exploring the text 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' written by Eric. We will be retelling the story and learning all about the lifecycle of a butterfly.

Forest School

Forest school will take place fortnightly starting Wednesday 2nd November. This is a brilliant outdoor learning session that the children look forward to and enjoy - prepare for MUD! Children must come into school in their forest school clothing and bring their wellie/walking boots in a separate bag.


Our P.E. lessons take place every Friday morning. Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school all week.

Helping your child at home

Reading: Continue to read regularly at home with your child. Allow your child to listen to you read, as well as listening to them.

Writing: Use lots of opportunities to write; shopping lists, cooking and baking, writing instructions. Any mark making is valuable to children forming letters.

Maths: Practise counting anywhere you can and try applying numbers to real life daily objects.

Please use your child's diary to communicate any messages to myself and our Willow learning team as they are checked daily. Or alternatively please do not hesitate to get in touch via email (npimblott@smallwood.cheshire.sch.uk) or ClassDojo.
