Year 1 & 2 Woodpeckers 2022 -2023

Autumn Term 2022

We have had a amazing Autumn Term and learnt alot.  Here are some of the fantastic activities we have enjoyed throughout the Autumn Term.

Trees For Dorset Seed Walk

Investigating Victorian Artefacts

Apple Picking

We had a wonderful time picking apples in our friend's orchard. We even got to meet his Alpacas!

Making Apple Cake

We used the apples we harvested to our own apple cake.  It was delicious!

Bear's Umbrella Experiment

We tested different materials to find out which one would be best for an umbrella for bear.


We had a brilliant visit from Martin of the Extreme Falconry park.  We learnt so much and he was very impressed with what we'd found out from our research.


Year 2 did great job subtracting 2 digit numbers using the diennes to help them.

Word Problems

Year 1 used a Victorian afternoon tea to help them solve some word problems.  They definitely deserved to eat the cakes afterwards!

Trees For Dorset

We planted some of the seeds that we collected on our seed walk and look forward to watching them grow.

East Dorset Museum Trip

Victorian Day

We had a great day experiencing being a Victorian servant and found out it was very hard work!
