There are 9 pupils in Woodpecker Class, who are supported by Miss Lappage (class teacher|), Miss O'Connell, and Mrs Jackxon. The children within Woodpecker class form part of our Pathway 2 (KS1).
In Woodpecker class, we ensure that we continue to build upon and extend the experiences that the children have had during their early years. We move towards more structured topic-based learning and encourage our pupils to explore a variety of activities and experiences in which they can develop their confidence and independence. All children have targets in English and Maths and are supported to overcome their barriers to learning. Each term the children will encounter a different topic which allows for exciting and engaging learning experiences for all. We complete a phonics lesson every morning.
Woodpecker class aims to facilitate all communication needs and promote an inclusive classroom environment. Within the classroom, children will experience working in small groups and on a 1:1 basis. We want our children to feel safe, confident and comfortable and are encouraged to become more independent learners in readiness for Key Stage 2.
In Woodpecker class all of our learners are valued, and we aim for every child to do their very best to achieve their full potential. We are proud of all of the pupils in Woodpecker class, and we will always aim to inspire every child to do their best
Life skills this term will focus on ‘Keeping Safe ‘ and ‘Personal Care’. We will be learning all about the importance of road safety, keeping safe during bonfire night and water safety.
