Woodpecker Class is a mix of Year 4 and Year 5 children. We focus on trying to develop the children’s appreciation of language, and to immerse themselves in stories and books. We try to create a safe environment in which children feel confident to take risks with their learning, perhaps making mistakes in the process, but all the while exploring ideas and progressing in their learning.
The class are encouraged to find links between different areas of the curriculum in order to help them make sense of their learning, and to help them see how the topics such as The Victorians, Space or Ancient Egypt relate to all subject areas. With the guidance of the teachers, the children are expected grow as independent, reflective learners; but above all, to contribute to a happy, lively and stimulating environment for young minds.
