Latest news from Woodpecker Class:

Welcome back to the summer term!

It hasn't felt like summer yet (or even spring at times!) but I am sure the weather will soon improve and we will be able to make the most of being able to access our outdoor environment. This term we have lots to look forward to...

All the year 2 children will have the opportunity to climb the church tower after the church service on Thursday 10th May. Each child will need to be accompanied by an adult family member, so look out for a letter in book packets.

All children in year 2 will take SATs tests during May. This is nothing for children or parents to be concerned about.

We are planning a trip to Bristol for the second half of term...again look out for a letter about this in the forthcoming weeks.

During the second half of term the year 2 children will be attending school at Frogmary Green Farm on Fridays. This will be an ideal opportunity to put our science into practise.

In July the year 2 children will spend a day at the Junior School as part of their transition to year 3.


Miss Irvine will continue to teach in Woodpecker class.

Miss Irvine is a student teacher from Bath Spa University who is spending her final school placement at South Petherton Infants. She will be working alongside Mr Halford and teaching the children for some sessions. She is already proving to be a very competent student and I feel certain that she will become an excellent teacher. Her placement lasts until June 22nd.


Year 2 End of KS1 SATs.

Thank you to the parents who attended the workshop on the afternoon of 12th March.

For those of you who were unable to attend, some information is attached below.


Trip to Bristol Aquarium

On Tuesday 12th June Woodpecker class will be visiting the Aquarium in Bristol. This will be a fantastic trip and the children will learn much about the oceans of the world, pollution and the problem with plastics and of course see a wide range of sea life.
