Welcome to Woodpecker Class!


Welcome to Woodpecker Class! Our teacher is Mr Brennan. Ms Dougal is the Teaching Assistant working with us in class. Our class is made up of pupils from Year 4 and 5.



Over the next two weeks, we are getting to know each other and discussing and writing about our 'Lockdown' experiences in our topic 'Our Golden Recovery'. We will also be learning about the Japanese art of 'Kintsugi', where things that are broken are repaired in gold to signify that nothing is ever truly broken. After this, we will move on to our main topic - The Vikings. 



We are currently having two outdoor PE sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We ask that children come to school wearing their outdoor PE kit on those days and that they are prepared for the weather!


In the mornings:

The school gates open at 8:45, and the children are expected to bring themselves into the classroom sensibly any time from 8:45 until 9am. Water bottles need to be placed in their trays. When the children arrive in the classroom, there will be early morning tasks for them to complete to set them up for the day ahead.



Children will receive weekly Maths, English and Spellings homework. This will be set on a Friday to be handed in by the end of the following Wednesday. Children are also encouraged to read at home every day and keep a record in their reading journals.
