Woodpecker Class Curriculum information for parents

Today, we learnt about Armistice Day. We created poppy paintings to remind us what the symbol of the poppy means.

Aztec patterns.

We wrote newspaper reports to warn others about the chocolate theft! Watch out for chocolate hand prints, purple fur and large foot prints!

Chocolate Theft at School! These are the photos we took whilst gathering evidence. The chocolate monster made such a mess and stole Mrs Smyth's chocolate stash!

We have been following a range of instructions today in literacy and thinking about the skills that are needed to be able to follow them effectively.

We have been learning to draw people accurately using eggs and sausages! Have a look at our sneaky and scary monster poses!

Partitioning in maths

WANTED - Chunk! Have you seen this huge chocolate monster? He's been stealing chocolate treats from around Mark. Keep your chocolate locked up!

Get your TTRockStars Passwords ready for the competition starting 9th November - 14th November.  Good Luck!


Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
