Expect the Best


Woodpecker Class

Spring Term

Welcome to the Woodpeckers homepage! Our class have had a fantastic autumn term and I expect it to continue throughout spring. Again, we have lots of exciting learning planned and I confident each child will continue to strive and go from strength to strength.

Every week our class page will be updated with a copy of the homework that is being sent home (with links accompanied). Please note on Mondays your child will be challenged by the 'Quiz Master' who will assess their Math and English skills. This is used as a form of assessment as well as to prepare the children for possible 'test' questions and to become comfortable being in a formal test environment. This will (hopefully) prepare them for their end of Year 2 SATS.

Homework- Homework will be sent home on Mondays in the blue homework book. You will find here spellings and maths homework. The children can learn their words during the week, ready for a test the following Monday. Please help your child by learning to read and write the high frequency words for year 2.

Book bags- Please read the books every day, return the book bag and reading diary the next day, even if the book is not completed. Please use the blue St John’s book bags for the daily readers as the yellow book bags are used for Library books.

PE days- Please ensure your child has PE kit including trainers in school. Please remember to tie up long hair and remove earrings. In fine weather, we may decide to go outside so please provide outdoor PE clothing and shoes. Our P.E days are Tuesday and Friday.

Please note- children should not be wearing any jewellery other than a watch and/or stud earrings, both of which will need to be removed for P.E. lessons (If children are unable to remove their earrings, they will need to cover them with tape. We are not permitted to remove a child’s earrings, or apply the tape, so children will need to be able to do this themselves). Long hair also needs to be tied back.

We are very much looking forward to teaching your children. If you have any worries or questions, please speak to us at the end of the school day in person or by telephone. Our Teaching Assistants can also help.

Thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning.
