Woodpecker Class

Summer Term

Welcome to the Woodpeckers homepage!

Wow, I cannot believe how fast the summer term has come around! Woodpeckers have worked extra hard during spring term and their hard work is paying off! Although the year is coming to an end that does not mean we will not be learning lots of new and exciting things! A key goal will be to prepare the children for entering KS2 and the increased level of expected from them in terms of work, effort and behaviour. A challenge I am sure they will rise to! Let's make this our best term yet Woodpeckers!

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- This term we will be attending swimming lessons so please ensure your child is well prepared and brings their swimming kit consisting of a towel and costume and any other equipment they will need. In addition to this, 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 Wednesday 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.

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.
