Walsham le Willows is a Voluntary Controlled Primary School, catering for children aged 4 – 11 years. We have five classrooms, a library and a hall. The hall is used for PE lessons, for group work, and for lunchtimes. We have an environmental area containing a pond, wild life area and the opportunity for use as an outside classroom. The area is fenced and locked so children can only gain access with an adult. We are lucky to be a very well resourced school.
We are fortunate to have large grounds, which consist of a large sports field, grassy play areas, mature trees and a hard play area, a willow tunnel and wooden play equipment.
We have four raised beds in our grounds and the children are actively involved in planting, growing and harvesting various vegetables. They all enjoy this experience, especially eating their own produce. We were fortunate enough to have a fifth raised bed provided by the Village Gardens Weekend Committee, allowing access to the gardening area by children in wheelchairs.
Caterpillar Class (Early Years) have their own outside area, which includes a playhouse, easels, water and sand trays. It is used as an extension of the classroom whenever possible. A canopy also provides cover to allow free-flow outdoor learning whatever the weather.
