Woodpecker class have been very busy recently. Their learning this term has been all about Castles! They have been learning about what castles are and why they were built. They have also been making art inspired by castles. They have been talking about what they would have in their dream castles if money was no object!
In English they have been reading stories and creating wonderful writing based on these stories. They have been reading traditional stories with a castle setting like Jack and the Beanstalk, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Rapunzel. They have also been writing spooky stories about haunted castles!
In RE children have been learning about the Religion Judiasm as well as being a good friend and Jesus’s friends the disciples.
Children have also been learning in Forest school and taking part in Cricket workshops.
We are looking forward to working with Kingfisher class soon to learn about the book The Lost Words. During this time children will be learning about words that have been taken out of the dictionary, like Adder and bramble. This will give us lots of opportunity to explore nature and poetry.
