It seems such a long time ago since our youngest Willow Brookers were on stage and showing just how clever and confident they had become!

Learning to play together with Miss Phillips and the parachute... Getting co-ordinated with a group skip... Reading your favourite book... And finishing your [...]

I hope that, like me, you thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon of sport on Tuesday afternoon! Willow Brook children are such stars when it comes to winning with style, losing with grace and supporting each other with a sense of community. That's what made the afternoon so happy and why teachers and children were so full [...]

The Speaker of the House brought our 180 M.P.s to order and the afternoon was as lively as Westminster! Having been the focus of our topic work in class [...]
