WOODPECKER CLASS

 We are Woodpecker Class 

Our Summer Term topic is Magic!

 

Thank you for all of your lovely Home Learning. The children will be showing their work to the class and placing it on display over the next week or two. 

Week Commencing 6th May 2019

We have had such a busy week! On Wednesday we walked to Mumbery Fields to collect leaves, cones,  sticks and any other natural resources we could find to bring back and create art with! It was quite wet and we were all a bit damp but we had a great time and  produced amazing art with the things we found.

We welcomed all our parents to Class Collective Worship today. Sadly we don't have many pictures as the light was behind us but we have added two below to see.

The week was finished off with more tennis. This time practising really watching the ball and keeping control of it. Tricky at the end of a long week but Mrs Hughes said we were fantastic and deserved lots of sleep and fresh air at the weekend!

It's our Class Collective Worship next Friday, 10th May 2019 at 9:00am. Come and join us as we lead the school in Collective Worship and then celebrate the Birthdays and achievements this week in Celebration Assembly.

Jack and The Beanstalk

We've been joined by our Year 1 friends from Kingfishers this week. Together we are learning the story of Jack and The Beanstalk. We put actions to the story and have shared some pictures of what we came up with.

We have had a wonderful start to the Summer Term. Amongst other things, we have started tennis as one of our Summer Term P.E. sports. We soon discovered that we were quite good at it! This week we concentrated on the correct grip and beginning to hit the ball to a partner across the net. Have a look at our photographs below to see the fun we had.

Old and New Houses

We finally got to go on our walk around Wargrave to investigate the difference between old and new houses. We had a lovely time looking at some of the oldest houses in the village (we looked VERY closely at one or two which must have been a lovely surprise for anyone in their living room)!

We discovered that some of the houses were over four hundred years old and we talked about some of the unusual features on the buildings in the village for instance, the sundial on Woodclyffe Hostel and the brickwork showing when it was built. 

Many thanks to the parents who gave up their time to come and walk with us. 

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Have a wonderful holiday and see you Wednesday 24th April 2019. 

At the Easter Service on Tuesday Key Stage 1 read about Friendship and how Jesus taught us to be a good friend. We presented pictures of us being good friends to St Mary's. The pictures are hanging in the church over Easter for visitors to see.
 We had celebrated Birthdays this week and were filling Mrs Akers in on the details at our end of term Celebration Assembly.

Our last day of term was a busy one. We created Easter  cards to take home and we made chocolate nests in case the Easter Bunny paid us a visit (which, of course, they did).  The classroom smelt delicious!

Now the children have had time to settle into the routines of Woodpecker class, please can we ask that you encourage them to come into class independently.  This helps us to get the day underway quickly without fuss.
