Welcome to Woodpeckers!
The teacher in Woodpeckers is Judith and we have a great team of Support Assistants with Sue, Lyndsey and  Ailish  all working hard to support your children. Whilst the school is shut to the majority of pupils due to Governmnet advice I can assure you that we will still be in school working to support our most vulnerable pupils and those whose parents are Key Workers. At the same time Woodpeckers Team will be providing fun learning activities on this page which will be updated regularly.
This term our topic is STARS, we will be looking at familiar rhymes and stories and thinking about the patterns stars make in the sky and linking this to map making and designing out own constellations. We will be thinking about Space Explorers and looking at Buzz Lightyear and his real life equivalent Buzz Aldrin. I will be suggesting lots of fun practical activities as well as posting links to activities your child can do online. 
Please take some time to look at the links below, there are lots of different activities you can try with your children from sensory play, physical activities to handwriting and reading comprehension. Don't forget your Education City Login's which have lots of different fun games for your child to play.
Well, good news everyone, it's the last week of Home Learning. We are looking forward so much to seeing you all back at school next week, and of course we will be taking time to settle back in and get used to new school routines. How about spending this week just reestablishing some routines such as getting up and bedtime? I know how easy it is to get up that little bit later when you don't have to go out the house. Have a practice of all your self help skills, putting on and taking off coats, shoes and socks, going to the toilet and feeding yourself. Maybe you could have a practice of asking, either verbally or using PECS, Communication Books etc to ask for things, ready for when you are back at school. We are all looking forward to seeing you bright and early next Monday morning. Harry our student will be back and Sue and Lyndsey there to help with everything you need. Enjoy your last week at home!!
