Hello, welcome to the Woodpecker's class page.
Usually we share all the exciting things we do and learn about in school with our friends and teachers. But just lately things have been very different! We are still learning and doing lots of exciting things, but we have been at home with our families.
It has been tricky, unsettling and scary at times, but the WONDERFUL Woodpeckers have done me, and all the teachers that work with them, so proud. Whilst at home they have continued with their learning, tried new activities, shared special times with their family and taught their Mummy and Daddy phonics!
As a teacher, I couldn't be prouder of all of you! Well done to you all xxx
Welcome to Woodpecker's class page!
Please check back regularly to see all our exciting learning journey!
Our class teachers are Miss Brassinne and Miss Ward. Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Homer, Miss Rogers and Mrs Cannon.
PE is on a Fiday morning so your child will need PE kit (black shorts, red t-shirt and suitable footwear). This term we are going to be practicing getting ready for PE by ourselves, learning the rules that we follow to stay safe and playing lots of fun games.
Reading books are sent home each day, please spend time sharing the book with your child as it helps them improve their confidence and reading.
Phonemes - each week we will be sending home the new phonemes the children have learnt in a wallet. Please sending some time going through these with your children, it really does help them with their reading and writing.
In the moment planning
Last year we starting 'In the moment' 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 phtos and the children's work.
Phonics and Maths will still be taught in separate sessions as well as being moved on in their play.
