Welcome to Woodpecker Class!
Year 3/Year 4
Class Teacher: Mrs Chamberlain
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Speakman, Mrs Cameron and Miss Carpenter
Wow, Woodpeckers, we are so impressed with the work you've chosen to send in this week. We loved your space questions for our ZOOM meeting and particularly enjoyed your spaghetti sound, 'ear' presentations and cup telephones!
For our ZOOM next week, can you bring with you your musical instruments that you will have made from Monday and Tuesday's planning.
Remember, please send one email to the school office, by Friday each week, containing your best bit of English, White Rose Maths and Topic. These can be shared and celebrated in our ZOOM each week. We love seeing what you've been doing.
Remember to use activities from the timetable every day to structure your learning. Use the links and resources below for daily White Rose Maths sessions and keep practicing your Fantastic Facts or Snap Facts. New booklets and other links to mathsy things can be found on our website. Make sure you check and improve your writing by using the 'Super Scriber' below and keep working to read and write your 'fish words' in your homework books. Keep using your neatest, joined handwriting, accurate punctuation and make sure those 'wh-', -ed and -ing words are correct. For reading, you might want to ask your grown ups to register on Oxford Owl where you can read hundreds of free books like the ones we have in class.
Please keep checking on this page for weekly plans, links to other fun stuff and photos of what we've been up to at school. I look forward to speaking with you next week and can't wait for us to all be back together soon.
Keep being awesome, be proud and keep safe.
The next maths booklets are available to pick up by the office!
When we need to learn from home, the resources below will support you.

Whole-class ukulele lessons with Mrs Palmer - funded by the PTA
A huge 'thank you' to the PTA for continuing to fund reading books for KS2, they make a significant difference to the children in Woodpecker Class.
Yo! Yo! Yo! Can you rap like Ricky?
We made Stonehenge at school but you continued learning at home, using a range of items including fish fingers, biscuits and even toy cows! Well done!
Maths Homework Packs - these are amazing!
They're booklets for each topic, for each year group (other year groups can be downloaded free from their website). They can be used before, during or after a topic to support learning.

What to expect from 7 and 8 year olds
At about 7 years old, children enter the 'Concrete Operational' phase of development (Piaget). This is an exciting change, but can be challenging too. As a parent, I have found the following sites really helpful.
