Miss Langley, Mr Reynolds, Mrs Tasker and Miss Radcliffe welcome you to Woodpecker Class!
We had a visitor before October half term. A fireman came in to talk to us about fire safety. We learned about smoke alarms, what number to call in an emergency, how to keep safe and how to STOP, DROP AND ROLL! One woodpecker was lucky enough to try on the fireman's outfit! After our assembly, we were able to go outside to see the fire van. We were able to ask questions and we even got to hear the siren!
For remembrance this year, we have been creating poppy art and talking about the importance of remembering. We have made stain glass poppies which are displayed on our windows. These were created using either glitter, sequins or tissue paper. We also made poppies which are displayed outside Wells Cathedral. These were really fun to make and turned out beautifully!
Arts Festival Week - 24th September - 5th October
As part of Arts Festival Week, Woodpecker class visited a local artist in Coleford. We visited with Kestrel Class and were able to see the artists work in their studio. We were also able to draw real life sketches from the artists' beautiful surroundings. Woodpecker Class also visited The Egg Theatre with Robin Class to watch the play 'Taking Flight'. We produced our own wings as a follow up from our visit. Finally, we made a class sculpture together. We decided to create a woodpecker with our hand prints on to express that we all belong in Woodpecker Class. You can now see this next to the school's new sculpture trail.
