World Book Day
English
In English we have been looking at poems. Here are Woodpeckers peforming 'the small ghostie'. Check out their performance below!
Topic
In our Topic work this term we are looking at FLIGHT. The children have all designed and made their own kites using: thin card, cellophane, tissue paper, sugar paper, skewers, string and then decorating them.
We then tried them out on the playground and all of them flew.
Maybe Woodpeckers will become great designers when they grow up!!

Traction Man came to visit Woodpeckers and we all passed our Super Hero Training
Forest School
This term we have incorporated our Super hero theme into forest school. We were visited by Traction Man (fictional super hero) who put our super heroes through their paces with different types of training. The children had to make dens to protect them from the Evil Hairdryer. They also had to practice balance skills, jumping, climbing, hanging, speed, spying and target throwing. The children all passed their training and received certificates, note pads and bands from Traction Man.
 
 
Science
Investigation 1
In science we looked at different materials. The children have been collecting and sorting different objects into their right groups.
Investigation 2
Our next experiment was to see if certain objects were waterproof. The children tried out news paper, tin foil, cellophane, tissue paper and fabric.
