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; we are important, mathematicians, historians, sportsmen/women, musicians, designers, writers, artists, loved, the future and The Reason We are Here!.
On Wednesday afternoon Woodpeckers had their reward afternoon. They watched a movie had popcorn, hot dogs and fruit ice lollies.
The children worked hard gaining 10 Woodpeckers for their tree by showing great behaviour, producing lovely work, working independently, working hard and being great friends.
WELL DONE TO ALL OF YOU!

Hooke Court Trip
Woodpeckers travelled to Hooke Court to take part in a WW1 re-enactment. When we arrived we were met by a soldier and he marched us to the camp. The children got to be soldiers for the morning and had to march everywhere. They also got to hold a rifle, pistol, bayonet and a grenade (not all real so don’t worry!!). Next Woodpeckers went down in the trenches where they got to see how soldiers lived while on the front lines. They then had to climb up the ladders to cross no mans land while avoiding smoke bombs, bullets, barbed wire and giant holes. It was a brilliant morning which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
This week Woodpeckers had to recreate the Lord Kitchener poster out of items in Forest School.
Woodpeckers had to create their own trenches using mud, bark, sticks and imagination for barbed wire.
All the children had to make a clay soldier and use things in forest school to camouflage it and then hide it.
Woodpeckers had to create their own Stickman/woman.
