Goldfinch Class – Year 2 and Year 3

Welcome to our class page, Goldfinch families!

Firstly, we would like to say welcome to Willow Park. It has been so lovely to see the children from St George, St Michael’s and new families join us. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead.

At Willow Park we will be continuing to follow our Light up Learning curriculum.  This is an enquiry-based curriculum which focuses on people, places and stories which challenge the children with their learning in the local area.

Our main enquiry this term is ‘Where does the darkness come from?’ The focus will be on becoming scientists, and asking questions about light and darkness.  The children will also be able to experience becoming artists, engineers and geographers.  The enquiry will culminate in the children preforming their own shadow puppet play.
