Woodpecker

Welcome to Woodpeckers Class!

 

Woodpeckers is our Year 2 class and is taught by Miss Migliano and supported by Miss Nicolaou and Mrs Denton.

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 outside learning and Forest School.

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 will be sent home on Friday’s and returned to back to school on Tuesday’s.

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

Reading records are due in weekly, dependent on the tables they are sat at; Rowan (Monday’s), Ash (Tuesday’s), Hazel (Wednesday’s), Oak (Thursday’s).
