This morning in the Woodpeckers we have been using our computing skills to type up our fact files in English. We have worked really hard to remember our word processing skills and to apply them to our work.

Today in reading we have been busy sequencing the events from our class novel. We tried to remember when things happened in the story and how the character felt at different points. We talked about how and why the character feelings changed and why this was important to the reader.

We have a new Digital Leader in the Woodpecker class. This is a very important role! First we looked at the job advertisement, we applied if we wanted to have a try and we had to explain why we would be good at the role. Once we had all the applications in, the digital leader was chosen.
This role involves helping other children in the class with their computing skills. Our Digital Leader has completed their training today and is ready to go!

Today in the Woodpecker class we have had a busy morning thinking about Remembrance Day. First, we watched a wonderful and very interesting assembly presented by the Starlings class. Then we watched Mrs Richmond play the 'Last Post' before decorating pebbles and laying them on the garden at the front of school. We enjoyed looking at all of the poppy pebbles from the other classes in school as we added our own. In reading, we explored the poem 'In Flanders Field' and also researched more about Remembrance Day and poppies. Both of these tasks helped us to understand more about this important day. Finally, observed a minute silence which all of the children completed in the most respectful manner. A very busy but important morning.
Miss Altham had an even busier and more challenging morning as she had to decide on the winners or the poppy competition which we held online and in school. Unfortunately we didn't have any official winners in the Woodpecker class but the children are all winners in our eyes. Thank you to all children and parents for all of your hard work at home with your entries.

Today the Woodpecker class have been busy writing fact files about the rainforest. The Rainforest is our topic for this term and we have been learning so many interesting facts that we thought it would be a good idea to share them in others. In English we have been exploring fact files and therefore we used our new learning to write our own fact files.
They look great on our display!

We have been working hard with our Big Questiins this week.

Great learning Woodpeckers!

School Council Elections -
Lower Key Stage 2 have held their elections this week! The children produced some fantastic written speeches which were read and spoken so very well. The teachers were extremely proud of the way the children committed themselves and there were some extremely talented and very honest individuals. Some of these could have easily made it to parliament! Well done to all who put themselves forward.

The Woodpecker class have been enjoying their new class novel 'Running Wild' by Michael Morpurgo. We have come across some excellent descriptions of the settings within the story. We have used these descriptions to create our own pictures of what we think the setting will look like.
We then labelled our work to show the description taken from the text.
