Welcome to Woodpecker Class! Our class is a mix of Year 1 and Year 2 children. Our class teachers are Miss Adler and Mrs Hart and we have Mrs Watson as our teaching assistant. We are lucky to have so many exciting adults in our class each week. Woodpeckers' is an amazing class; where we begin our Learning Journeys and discover new things.
Woodpeckers travelled to Beaminster to take part in the Multi Skills Festival. It was a great morning of activities which were all run by Beaminster sports leaders.

WW1&2 Forest School Trip
On Tuesday 8th November Woodpeckers and Kingfishers travelled to Moreton Forest and became soldiers for the day. The children had to carry rifles (plastic hockey sticks) all day. We marched, built dens, threw grenades (pine cones), went on an assault course and searched for a injured soldier and used a stretcher to carry them back to base. The children had great fun and really got into character.
Bovington Tank Museum Trip
As part of our WW1 topic the children had to use different materials to design their version of the Lord Kitchener poster. They used paint, crayons, tissue paper and pastels to recreate the picture.
Woodpeckers will be incorporating their topic of WW1 into forest school this term. We will be building army camps, constructing a medical tent, build and use stretchers, practice marching and lots more.
Can you spot the army men?

Woodpeckers were very lucky to experience part of the Jewish religion by celebrating Shabbat.
We blessed Challah (bread) and drank some wine (blackcurrant juice) then the children then shared out the bread and treats and we listened to Jewish music and had a lovely time as a class which is what Shabbat is all about.
