Previously in Woodpecker Class:

Egyptian Vases Preparation

Woodpeckers have been working hard designing their Egyptian vases in connection with our topic and this week began constructing them. There was lots of newspapers and it did get quite messy at times(!) but we are closer to our finished articles.




Mental Health

This week we discussed various ways to look after our mental health including eating healthily, exercising, spending time with friends etc. The children then each took a topic and created a poster to represent each theme.



 Over half-term the class have been tasked with completing a piece about "What have the Ancient Egyptians done for us?". This can be done via a powerpoint, a poster or a long piece of writing. We encourage the class to conduct their own research as well as use the knowledge they have gained from within our topic lessons.


It is strongly encouraged for Woodpeckers class to be completing tasks on Mathletics throughout the week to aid in the progression of their maths skills. The points they accumulate through the week will be rewarded with a certificate and prize during celebration assembly on Friday.
