Woodpecker Class

We have had an exciting last few weeks of term in Woodpeckers class. We have been reading 'Penguin Small' and role playing with our special class penguin! We have been making snowflakes and worked together to build a class igloo. We enjoyed reading 'Stick man' and making our very own, using mini rolls and matchmakers. We have also learnt about 'The Christingle' and followed instructions to make one, learning what each part represented. We have enjoyed lots of cooking and made rudolph biscuits. We have finished the term in style with a class party and Christmas quiz!

Christmas activities in Woodpeckers Class!

We have started this half term with a bang! We have enjoyed some fizzing firework art and made beautiful chalk pictures of the Northern Lights. We have also been exploring Polar Bears by reading the Bear Report and even had a visit from a Polar Bear!

This week we read 'Meesha Makes Friends, learning how to be good friends and we have been playing games together, taking turns and practising our play skills. We have made our own friends out of junk modelling. We have enjoyed making pictures for our friends and putting them onto our 'How kind' class display.  We also really enjoyed following instructions to make friendship cookies! 


Welcome to Woodpeckers Class!

In our class we have 9 pupils with Holly as our class teacher (Kelly on a Friday), Sian, Anke, Mandy, Justine and Vicky.

This term our topic is ‘Togetherness’, when we will be learning all about each other and our feelings, as well as being a good friend. During circle time, we will be sharing our favourite things and listening to our friends.


In our first few weeks of being back at school, we have settled back into our school routines really well! We have enjoyed making kindness buckets for our ‘How Kind’ class display and filling each other’s buckets with friendly messages and pictures. We have explored what makes us happy then made tally charts and block graphs to show our results. We have also taken listening walks in the Woodland Area to help us become more aware of our surroundings.

This week we have read The Snail and the Whale. We really enjoyed making Snail homes in the Woodland Area and making mud snails to go inside, getting a little messy ourselves at the same time! We have also worked really hard completing our Snail and the Whale number activities. We loved our sensory story in circle time, using the parachute and bubble machine for the waves when it came to the stormy part of the story, and we even got to see Mandy dressed up as the snail!

Woodpecker Class


4 Nov 2019

We have enjoyed a busy start to the new half term in Woodpecker Class. Our topic is Magic and we have done lots of exciting and magical work.
In Science we have taken part in experiments such as a fireworks one and one involving a bubbling cauldron. We will also be writing our own potions and spells and have fun playing Kim's Game where we will make an object disappear and then try to remember which one from the group has gone!!

We are very lucky this half term, it is our turn to have music with Alison once a week and we will also be going riding on a Wednesday morning. This half term has also included Remembrance Day and we watched a short film about the Poppy Fields and then painted our own poppy.

The whole school enjoyed dressing up as superheroes for Children in Need this year and then the countdown to Christmas started!! We have some members of the choir in Woodpecker Class (staff and children) and they will be singing in a concert at St Martin's Church at the beginning of December which we are all really looking forward to.

We will also be doing lots of practicing for our part in this year's production Strictly Christmas which we can't wait to perform for our friends and families.
