Welcome to the Willow Class Pages!


Fancy a Mr. Gaind sandwich anyone...?!


Willow Class are the Year 3 and 4 children of Sundridge and Brasted School.

Mr Gaind is the class teacher. Mrs Taylor-Hicks, who was the Teaching Assistant in Willow, is now a trainee teacher under the Graduate Teaching Programme and will also be teaching the class during the year. She is a great asset to the team. Mrs Kelly will be our Teaching Assistant for the year.

Willow class is a fun place to learn with interactive displays and plenty of the children's work up for all to see and be proud of. We pride ourselves on a friendly, family atmosphere with the emphasis on independent learning and taking pride in our achievements.

Regards, Mr Gaind
