Woodpeckers class are lucky enough to have two teachers, we are, Mrs Dudridge and Miss Clark. We will teach half of the week each! They also have Miss Barr as our class TA every day of the week.
The children will receive homework which will usually include a weekly Spellings task and a timetable task - they should bring their book in weekly so that these can be marked and stuck in. The children will do a spelling and timestable test every Friday and the results will be shared on our door! Reading regularly with your child is also really important (and great for our word count) so please encourage the children, as will we, to bring their books home to share with you. The children will do indoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon and outdoors on a Friday afternoon so please ensure their PE kit is in school.
If you have any questions please come and see us before or after school and we will be more than happy to help!
Mrs Dudridge and Miss Clark
This term the children will be focusing on Geography during topic sessions. They will be learning about our local environment, Europe and how to read maps. In Science we will be learning about 'Animals including Humans' so will be performing lots of experiments, getting to know the digestive system and searching for minibeasts. We are hoping in art to study a local artist and in March we plan to go the moors to explore some of our heritage. The children will be learning the story of 'Patrick' and 'Icarus' so we are hoping that they continue to improve their range of vocabulary as well as their use of punctuation and a range of sentence types. Our class story this term is 'The Midnight Gang' by David Walliams. We will continue to keep you updated weekly with how the children are getting on with their spellings and times tables.
Our topic this term is 'I'm a Briton Get me Out of Here!'- the children will be learning about the Romans and then about the Anglo Saxons and the effect that both these tribes had on Great Britain. Hopefully, the children will be sharing their enthusiasm of this subject with you and we would love to see or hear any ideas you have to offer! In Science the children will be doing Electricity and we hope that whilst learning to be safe around electrical sources they will also be able to conduct their own electrical circuit.
