Mrs Stockwell - Wonderful Woodpeckers

Welcome to our very own Class Page!


Our topic for Autumn Term 1 is ME and MY COMMUNITY.


It's a lovely first topic encouraging our children to get to know each other, build positive relationships with their class friends, discover our whole school community and who is at school to help us, develop a real sense of belonging and learn that we are all special, different and equally valued and important.  We have loved receiving your pictures through Class Dojo to show us exactly what your child loves to do at home - a big thank you to you all for these! 


Throughout this topic we have been learning our 3 school rules.  These are:

Be ready

Be respectful

Be safe

We are so proud of how well your children have already settled in and how they are very enthusiastic and determined to follow our rules.  


Science - we have been learning about forces such as:push, pull, bounce, gravity, swing

Computing - we have been teaching our children to keep themselves safe when using the internet. We have also been using our school Purple Mash site where they practice clicking, dragging and choosing/selecting an activity.

Art - we have been learning how to mix different colours.  Can your child remember which 2 colours make purple, orange and green?

History - We have been learning about what we do in our school day, thinking about what we did yesterday and what we will do tomorrow.  We have also sequenced our school day thinking about what we do first, second, third and so on.


We have had two fun sessions in our brand new Forest School which your children absolutely loved.  We all had so much fun! Please scroll down to see photos of our Forest school activities.
