Woodpeckers - Reception & Year 1
Welcome to Woodpeckers!
The Class teachers looking after the youngest members of our school community are Mrs Gillman and Mrs Luxford.
They are supported by Mrs Kaye and Mrs Monk.
In Woodpecker Class a large focus for us is learning through play. Outside we might ride bikes, hunt for bugs, play in the mud kitchen or look for letters and numbers hiding in the sand. Inside we could choose to play with the play dough, paint, draw, count, construct or practice writing. There are lots of opportunities for hands-on fun and interaction with a wide range of resources and activities.
A big emphasis is put on developing the children’s confidence and independence in learning, as well as building early skills in literacy and numeracy.
