Blog and homework for week commencing 7th of December

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's blog and homework page. As we come to the end of the year, this will be the last set homework however I will still put a blog up next week.
Last week was another busy week for Willow Class. On Tuesday afternoon, Willow Class transformed into Roman soldiers and proved to me that they were fully trained within four different battle formations - the orb, repel cavalry, the wedge and the tortoise. Fortunately, all soldiers passed the test! Friday brought the last of our muffin making. Next week, we will be evaluating our muffins - thinking about what we enjoyed about them and if there's anything we would change next time. I have to say, they all looked and smelled delicious!
I have attached photos on our class page of our Roman formations, muffin making sessions and our ongoing multi-skills sessions which the class have really enjoyed.
Below is an overview of our Willow Class celebrations as well as details of this week's subject homework, spellings and Bug Club.
We have some Spelling Frame Stars who have been working hard to practise their spellings and build up well-deserved points. Well done to our famous five for this week who Lucas Graham, Lily Mallaburn, Emmie Keenan, Brody Gibson and Tilly Ostle. Keep up the hard work everyone and make sure spellings are practised ready for our weekly test. Let's see who will appear at the top of our leaderboard next week. There are School360 points up for grabs!
Since we are celebrating Spelling Frame Stars each week, I thought it would be only right that we celebrate our Times Tables Rockstars Heroes on o weekly basis too. Rockstars is a great tool for weekly practise so make sure you all spend a bit of time on it every week. This week, I'm going to give to everyone who has been on Rockstars practising their times tables. There is quite a list so I won't put everyone's names up but but well done to you all and I will give out School 360 points this week. 
Our Star of the Week for last week was Archie Lee for his fantastic piece of story writing. All of the interesting description and detail made your story a gripping read Archie - well done! I will announce our next Star of the Week on next week's blog.
~ All spellings can be found by logging onto Spelling Frame. Please log on regularly every week to practise your weekly spellings. If for some reason your child is not able to access Spelling Frame, please get in touch and I can send you the spelling list. 
This week's homework is once again set on 'Busy Things' in 'My Assignments'. This week's homework has a Winter theme and you have two tasks. The first is to write about Winter using one of the writing templates which you will find in 'My Assignments'. The second is to design a symmetrical snowflake which I'm sure you will all enjoy doing. Don't forget to submit your work to me.
I have made sure that you all have a few books ready to read which should keep you going up until Christmas and maybe over the holidays too.
Take care everyone, have a good week and as noted, I will check in with a final blog next week.
