Welcome back my lovely Woodpeckers!

It was so lovely to see you all back together! You were super today and I am sure we'll have a brilliant time together. Well done!

These beautiful books will help to support our learning this half term.


Woodpeckers, thank you so very much for all of your kind words and gifts. This year has been one like no other yet the children have made it through smiling and ready for their next challenge.

Enjoy the summer break together.

Woodpeckers, we've had a super DT week. Your paper pyramids showed so many skills and demonstrated so much history knowledge. We had lots of fun lifting, weighing and sharing our potatoes, cooking and eating Moroccan style cous-cous and using a solar oven to cook hotdogs. You really impressed during our arty ZOOM to the National Gallery and wow...you were awesome in our Variety Performance.  

You should be very proud.

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.
