Miss Gillow and Mrs Parvez will be working with the Woodpeckers this year.


In science we have been exploring the school garden for different creatures. We have been learning about how living things have habitats and how their habitats are important in giving them things that they need to live.

In our theme lessons we have been learning about celebrations. 

The children have been using their understanding to write non-fiction pages for a class book. 


We loved being visited by the Yogi group to take part in a yoga session. We found it challenging and relaxing! 


In science we have been learning about our different senses. Here we are exploring our sense of taste by fruit tasting. 


In  literacy we have loved sharing stories. Here we are acting out the story of Little Red Riding Hood. 

We enjoyed reading the story 'Room on the Broom.' We designed and wrote about our very own 'truly magnificent broom'. 



This half term we have been looking at the artist Hundertwasser. We have had a go at creating our own pieces of art work inspired by the artist. Take a look at the pictures and decide which of these is your favourite.


Happy International Women's day. 
Today Woodpeckers discussed the importance of International Women's day and we created some beautiful posters. Here are a few below. 


This week in class we have been learning about anti-bullying. We have been thinking about how we are all different and that we should be kind and tolerant of one another. To show our differences we coloured in odd socks!



Today we have been learning about the pirate Sir Francis Drake. We watched a video and thought about whether he was good or bad. We then used a picture from the Spanish Armada, where Sir Frances Drake defeated the Spanish, to paint fire on a ship. We learnt to mix paint to create different coloured flames.


Today we have been using 'paintz app' to create our own self portraits on the computers.

All the children in KS1 have been learning about Harvest in their RE lessons. The children and their families in Woodpeckers, Kingfishers and Goldfinches have donated tins, bottles and boxes of food and created a Harvest hamper. The Foxton Centre were over the moon to receive all of our generous harvest donations. It is so nice to help others in our neighbourhood. Well done everybody!
