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!
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.
We will be using these beautiful books to support our learning this half term.

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.

As I was going to St Ives...
During 'Lockdown', Doves (children of keyworkers) had a super time at school. Look at some of the things we got up to.
