Woodpeckers 2023-24

 
Welcome to Woodpeckers!
 
 
 
Spring 2 - Information for Parents 
 
Please check Class Dojo for regular class updates and important announcements.
 
  • PE will be taught on Wednesday afternoons. This term a dance specialist will be coming in to school for 2 sessions. We will also be developing kicking and passing skills in football.
  • Outdoor learning will be taught on Thursday afternoons.
  • Miss Scrivens will teach the class on Wednesday mornings.
 
Pupils will need to have a full PE kit and outdoor learning kit that they should keep in school. All items - including water bottles - need to be clearly labelled with your child's name to ensure they do not go missing.
 
Your child will be given weekly spellings to practice and will be tested every Friday. These spellings can be accessed on Spelling Frame (login information will be in your child's new reading journal), and they will also be given a paper copy to practice from.
 
Please read with your child daily as this is essential for your child to make good progress across the curriculum.

Cheltenham Literature Festival 2023
 
Woodpeckers had great fun at Cheltenham Literature Festival this year. We loved meeting the Gruffalo and seeing Michael Rosen live!

What a lovely, sunny week back in school! It was lovely to see the children again and meet some new faces.
 
They have all settled back into school life with ease and we had a lovely week getting to know each other.
 
Below are some photos that give a glimpse into what we got up to this week!
