Woodpeckers

Welcome to Woodpeckers 2021-22 with Miss Hustler!

We made biscuits for our celebration of learning evening today. Hopefully the parents enjoy!

A fantastic morning at Ignite multiskills festival!

We have started our plants topic in Science. Today, we looked at differences between seeds and why plants produce them. We then did a seed hunt on the field.

We have been reading The Storm Whale in English and Woodpeckers have created amazing narratives from the perspective of the main character Noi.

A unique art lesson using real fish to help us understand the intricate detail of fish scales!

Year 2 Sleepover!! We have a wonderful evening playing games, eating hot dogs, toasting marshmallows and watching a film before bed. The children were so resilient putting their beds away and getting themselves ready for the morning. I was very proud of the teamwork they showed helping each other. A very fun evening had by all.

Our art topic is drawing this term and we have been looking at different materials to draw with. Our focus artwork has been ‘southwold’ by Stanley Spencer and today we used view finders to recreate parts of the picture.

School trip to Ruislip Lido for our topic ‘Life on the Ocean Wave’. We went on a walk through the woodland, made sandcastles and played on the beach before a beach scavenger hunt. The children had a wonderful day!

Performing ‘Resurrection Day’ at St Mary’s Church for our Easter Service

Science Day! We have had so many amazing scientists from Oxford University join us at school for a day of exciting workshops and learning. We have made DNA, learnt about germs, improved our memory and found out about sinking and floating.

Our DT topic this term is ‘food and nutrition’ and this lesson we have been exploring taste, texture and smells of fruit and vegetables.

This afternoon we have enjoyed our sports for champions circuits and assembly. We had Zeeks come to school who represents Great Britain and Nigeria in the long jump. All the children raised so much money for a great cause being sponsored for their circuits.

Great Fire of London show from Science Oxford!

World book Day! We are so excited to be back celebrating as a school after 2 years not being able to. Whole school parade, assembly with a book related quiz, shared reading and world book day activities throughout the day! The costumes are fantastic, well done everyone!

Shared reading with the year 4s and 5s!

Our finished African pouches! The class did so well designing, creating templates, sewing the pouches and finishing their final product. They then wrote up step by step instructions for what they did and evaluated their work.

We started our sewing project in DT today! By the end of term, our aim is to make African inspired pouches. Today we designed 4 options before learning how to do a running stitch with a needle and the whole class produced a brilliant practise piece of fabric with a running stitch around it.

Our harvest poem performance at St Mary’s church for harvest festival.

We have had a fantastic afternoon testing materials to see if they are waterproof. We decided that the Queen would be best in a plastic hat to keep her dry, rather than a fabric one!

In RE we have been learning about kindness and how Jesus taught us to be kind to all. We have had a special visitor, Elizabeth from Christian Aid telling us about the work she does and how important it is to be kind to our neighbours.
