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.

Woodpeckers Remembrance Day

Date: 11th Nov 2020 @ 11:36am

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.

Woodpeckers Class Rainforest Writing

Date: 6th Nov 2020 @ 4:09pm

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!
