Welcome to Woodpeckers Class. Our teacher is Mrs Twell.
The Woodpeckers have had a wonderful first term in Year 1. They have all settled well and everyone has been working very hard. In science, they have been learning about different groups of animals and the habitats they live in. They have learned about what animals need to survive and whether they are carnivores, omnivores or herbivores. In geography, the Woodpeckers have learned about the continents of the world. They have looked at the countries of the UK and the physical and human features of our local area. The children have been learning how to record their own ‘discover and do’ learning on Seesaw using an iPad. They have been learning how to keep themselves safe online and they can say what to do and who to tell if something happens that makes them worried or unhappy when using a computer, tablet or mobile device. In art, the children have looked at paintings by Van Gogh and Monet. They have used different brushstrokes to paint in the same style and have produced their own sunflower and waterlily paintings.
