Dear Children and Carers,
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and spending lots of time in your gardens now that Spring has finally arrived! I am sure you will have some fantastic creative adventures during the next few weeks and I can’t wait to hear all about them when I see you.
I may not be seeing you for a while, but I am thinking of you all and I know you will be doing some fantastic learning at home. We can still share some of our learning adventures together and I will post some ideas and links on the website that I know you will enjoy. Woodpeckers are some of the best Lego builders in the world! So I know that some of you will take part in the Lego Challenge and for all my amazing artists have a go at the ’25 Day Drawing Challenge’. I can’t wait to see some of your creations and works of art!
I would love to see what you have been doing at home. Please send us your photos of anything you draw, write, create, paint, build, plant, read, play or do. You could email this to school to be put on the class page on the website, if you are happy for us to do this. I miss not seeing most of you all at school. If there is anything learning related you would like to ask, email us – also with any exciting news you want to share with your teachers and friends!
I am busy at school two days a week and I am learning and working from home on the other three days. I have been going on some very long walks and the best thing I have seen so far are some super cute ducklings having fun on the river! I have been doing lots of jobs at home and catching up on reading all the books that were waiting for the Summer holidays!
Remember to be kind to yourself and your families, don’t worry about anything just enjoy your home learning. Being creative and playing outside are some of the best things you can do at the moment.
I know that ‘Show and Tell’ is one of Woodpeckers most favourite things…EVER! So when we are back at school we are going to have the BIGGEST ‘Show and Tell’ session. I will tidy my desk ready for all the lovely things you will be bringing in to share!
Take care Woodpeckers and I look forward to seeing you soon.
Hello Woodpeckers! Welcome back to the Summer Term. I hope you are all ok and enjoying your time at home with your families. I am missing you ALOT and I can't wait to see all of your smiling faces back at school, ready to learn and have lots of fun!
I know it is difficult at the moment but I know you will all be trying your best with your work at home and being super well behaved too!
I have been going to school some days and it is still very busy in Woodpeckers classroom. The children at school have been working hard, being creative and even cooking their own lunches a few times a week! Perhaps we could try cooking our lunch one day when we are all back, have a think about what could be on the Woodpeckers menu!
When I am at home I have been keeping very busy too. I love looking at some of the photos that some of you have been sending in of your home learning and you can see these on our class page. I have been going out for some lovely long walks, enjoying the beautiful countryside, cooking treats for my family, reading and also clearing out and tidying (it's not just you who needs to tidy your rooms you know!). I was even lucky enough to have a visit from the Easter Bunny - see if you can spot my treat in the photos!
I miss you Woodpeckers and I really hope we can all be back together very soon.
I hope you are all keeping well and are able to do plenty of activities at home.
I've been spending time doing some of the things I enjoy such as gardening, cooking, walking and reading.
It's been lovely to see some of you when I've been out for a walk.
These pictures are from a walk to Lulworth Cove and over Bindon Hill.
In the duck pond I could see the ducklings are thriving.
On top of Bindon hill the beautiful cowslips were abundant and a skylark was singing and hovering, probably to draw me away from its nest which must have been in the grass nearby.
As well as the wonderful views along the coast, I saw four huge ships in Weymouth bay (they looked a lot bigger than they appear in my photograph)!
I am looking forward to us all seeing each other in school again and finding out about the things you have been doing in our time away,
Very Best Wishes from Miss Bailey
I really miss seeing you all every day but hope you are enjoying your time at home with your families, favourite toys, activities and tv shows! I have been spending my time outside in the garden and spent a lot of time trying to get this photograph for you of me and my cat Olive. She has only been allowed outside for the first time this week so is very distracted by birds and bugs!
Look forward to seeing you soon,
This is a very strange time at the moment and I'm missing seeing you all. I have been looking after my 3 children, baking lots of cakes and walking my two lovely dogs.
I can't wait for us all to return to school and have lots of fun together while learning!
Stay happy and safe, love from Mrs Winch.
