Welcome to Woodpeckers Class!


Woodpeckers is our Year 2 class and is taught by Mrs Gormley and supported by Mrs Childs.

In Year 2 we continue to learn through a topic based creative curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. We cover 3 topics a year, learning opportunities are enhanced by trips, visitors and outside learning.

In Woodpeckers class we continue to develop the skills of working independently and children are encouraged to find things out for themselves and to challenge and extend their ideas. In year 2 children learn through a range of hands on practical tasks and more formal classroom based activities.  We also try to take the learning outside as much as possible.


Important information:

Homework grids are sent home at the beginning of each term with a different activity to choose from each week.  Each homework tasks need to be returned to school by Friday of each week.

Spellings are sent home on a Friday. Spelling books are due back on the following Thursday and the children are tested on the Friday.

Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school which includes sensible footwear. PE lessons take place on a Monday afternoon. Please also ensure your child has their waterproof trousers and wellies in school at all times.  Woodpeckers Class go to Forest School on Thursday afternoons.
