Welcome to Woodpecker Class!
'Embracing the Fullness of Life'
John 10:10 "I am come, that they might have life, and that they might have it abundantly."
We are a class of 28 Year 2 children in Woodpecker Class. Our teacher is Mrs Llewellyn, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Howes (Monday - Wednesday) and Mrs Ross (Thursday - Friday). We are lucky to have a beautiful classroom in the main building above the hall.
We are encouraged to be as independent as possible, from sorting out our own book bags, changing our own reading books and putting away snacks, to selecting resources to support our own learning.
We are very lucky to have caring parents who support us at home with our learning. We have a learning wall in the classroom to celebrate our fantastic work at home and school. Come and look!
Woodpecker classroom is always busy and we love to try new things. We are looking forward to more exciting learning and adventures this term!
Book of the term:
I am not sure who is more in love with this book - me or the children. 'Inside the Villains' is truly beautiful, with so many layers to it. Everyone will want to get their hands on this book to lift the flaps, peek in pockets, and reveal all of these fairy-tale villains' secrets! For a twist on well-known tales, the giant, the wolf, and the witch each have their own interactive flaps, hiding spots, and a personality card. Dig into this book to see the diabolical thoughts inside the villains' heads, what lurks beneath their disguises, or the victims of their last meals (now comfortably settled inside their stomachs!).
Weekly homework will consist of:
Children are expected to read little and often. Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background. Sharing a book with your child should be a pleasurable experience, never force a child to read.....we want them to love reading. Read a book to them, if they are reluctant, let them see you reading for pleasure. The most important thing is you have fun. Some ideas to encourage a love of books:
