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. We also have Harry a teaching student on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
This term our topic is Ourselves and we will be making sure we spend time getting to know your child and learning what they like and what they don't like! We will be looking at family and friends and body part as well as how we use all five senses. We will be doing lots of fun practical activities and I will keep you updated with photos. This week (week beginning 12th October) is Black History month so we are looking at similarities and differences in different people from different countries. We will be reading "If the World were a village of 100 people" (video link below) and looking at different ways to say" Hello", at different traditional dress and food to begin to develop an awareness of differences. Next week (week beginning 19th October) our focus will be "harvest" we will be looking at harvest around the world and thinking about children's harvest where they collect conkers, acorns and Autumn leaves. I have also added the termly planning overview for your information.
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. Judith and the Woodpeckers Team
