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 three TA's Miss Barr, Miss Holt and Miss Champion.
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
As we prepare for Christmas the children are getting ready for lots of fun and interesting activities that are coming up. We've wrote our very own Knowle 12 days of Christmas song, we are learning British Sign Language to Merry Christmas Everyone and we will be performing these in our Christmas performance.
To add to this, during Enterprise week (where the best class will win) the children will be finding the best way to make as much money as possible for the class. The children will choose what they will buy and sell on a budget. We are hoping to create Christmas decorations and will be encouraging the children to do their best Alan Sugar impressions to sell their product. Not only will we see our amazing artists showcasing their talents but we will also find out which children will be running their own businesses in time to come and it will allow our mathematicians to really show off!
Stay tuned for more information and photos to come!
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.
