Hello and a warm Woodpecker welcome to the Wonderful Woodpecker Class in Year 1!

The Wonderful Woodpeckers are taught by Miss Baldwin and Mrs Allan who are really excited to meet and work with all of you. Over the year we will be working hard together towards achieving learning objectives from the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum in a fun and engaging practical way. We will be building on all of the amazing foundation learning experiences you had in Reception. We have six astounding topics to explore over the year and we will be working hard to develop our reading. writing and maths skills. This year we will have more Forest School experiences as well as lots of educational visits and visitors to support our learning journey. 

Our library day will be Friday and our PE days will be each Monday and every other Tuesday so please come to school dressed in your PE kits on these days. We will read throughout the week in school as much as possible so please bring your book bags and water bottles with you every day. Our spellings test will be on Fridays with the new spelling sheets sent home every Friday. Please look out for newsletters, information and letters in your child's book bags. Please also sign up to Class Dojo if you haven't already as there will be regular updates and photographs of what we have been learning  if you need one. If you need to ask anything then don't hesitate, we're here to support you all and make this year fantastic!

Here's some advice from our Wonderful Woody Woodpecker - Find your own rhythm, Peck away at obstacles, Be colourful, Carve out a place for yourself, Make your voice heard, It’s OK to be a little flashy, Use your head!
