Woodpecker – Y1/2
Welcome to Woodpecker Class
Autumn Term 2 2021
We are enjoying learning about many festivals. We have been making moving pictures and created a bonfire display. Our school helped to make a display for the Window Wanderland in Shepton Mallet and we enjoyed creating colourful leaves for this!
Autumn Term 1 2021
We have enjoyed writing about ourselves and are now learning about 'Our Amazing Body'. We are learning about our five senses and how to keep healthy. We have created self-portraits which are being displayed in our class gallery.
Summer Term 2 2021
This half term we will be learning about the plants and animals that we have in our school grounds. We will be thinking about different minibeasts and where they make their habitats. We really enjoyed seeing different creatures brought into school by some visitors.
Summer Term 1 2021
We are excited to be learning about bridges using the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We are also going to learn about the engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel'.
We explored different materials to test how suitable they would be for making a bridge. We thought about whether they were strong, waterproof and could hold their shape. We then designed and made our own bridges that would carry a toy car, thinking about what we had learnt from our material testing.
Autumn Term 2 2020
The children in Woodpecker Class have enjoyed getting ready for Christmas and making festive decorations.
Autumn Term 1 - 2020
We are enjoying settling into Woodpecker Class and being back in school with our friends. We are reading the book 'Here We Are' and thinking a lot about the world around us.
