Just wanted to send you all a message to say how lovely it was to have everybody back in class.
The children have been a fabulous, it is so nice to have the classroom full with children. They were so talkative and loved spending time with their friends.
The children achieved so much during lockdown. Well done to all the adults that helped the children with remote learning. You have all been great and so engaging. It has been so nice to see the ideas you had and how you taught your children.
We look forward to our last term in Reception with all the children in class. We are always here if you need to talk.
The Woodpeckers team.

Our class teacher is Miss Corr. Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Homer, Miss Woodland and Miss Christie.
PE is on a Tuesday morning so your child will need to come to school in their PE kit (black shorts, red t-shirt and suitable footwear). This term we are going to be practicing ball skills- Passing, kicking, travelling with a ball.
Covid-19 Update 2021:
Recently our learning has been a little different. At home we have been busy doing our remote learning and we have created some amazing work which has made everyone very proud. Keep up the fantastic learning Woodpeckers, you have made us all super proud!
Here is some of your amazing work during lockdown.
Summer term 2021
After our time in lock down we are finally in our final term of Reception. We are getting ready for key stage one.
We have been working hard in all areas of development. We are working hard on embedding using our phonics to help us to write sentences by ourselves and in maths we have been learning about repeating patterns, subitising and looking at weight, height and length.
Everyday we start the day off with some songs, which we all enjoy doing. We have loved leaning a range of new songs and would be happy to perform for a willing audience.
Watch us grow
What a fun half term we have had. We started the half term with a fantastic science week. We explored different food, looking at where they come from and tasted a variety of food. We looked at different stories linked to food.
We loved learning how things grew so much. We read the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.
We have been so busy planting our own beans, making and thread our own harps to play, using our phonic knowledge to write amazing stories linked to the story and using the eco material to make our own beanstalk to grow.
In the moment planning
At Tithe Farm Primary plan using 'In the moment' learning with the children. This means that we follow the children's interests and moving their learning forwards during their play. We are continuing with this again this year, using the children's interests to plan smaller topics.
Each week we will be focusing on different children, carrying out long observations, as well as wow moments in their learning. Their learning will be recorded in their learning journeys, along side photos and the children's work.
Phonics and Maths will still be taught in separate sessions as well as being moved on in their play.
