Woodpeckers - Mrs L Robinson

Croeso i Woodpeckers!


The class teacher for the Woodpeckers class is Mrs L Robinson, with her is Mrs J Hern and Miss J Perry.


Our topics this year are:


Autumn Term:

Scented Garden- Our first topic this year is ‘Scented Garden’. We have already enjoyed investigating how to care for flowers and plants and investigating how they grow. In Maths, we will be looking at sorting and counting seeds and data collection of our favourite flowers amongst many others. We will be exploring our local environment and what sorts of nature we can find growing there. There will also be many exciting opportunities for art and craft too.

Brilliant Betsi - We will be learning about the Welsh history of Betis Cadwaldr the famous Welsh nurse. We will compare nursing and hospital from the past and present.


Spring Term:

Muck, mess and Mixture- We will experiment with a range of materials to understand their properties and uses. In addition we will research where mess and muck comes from.

Street Detectives - We will explore our local environment and compare it to other similar sized towns in both Wales and around the world.


Summer Term:

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets- A great adventure exploring the Welsh castles and their importance in the past. We will also discover amazing facts about the people that lived and worked in them.

Land Ahoy - Lets go to the beach. We will learn about the sea and coast. Boats, harbours and animals.


Homework and PE:

Our Homework day is a Friday and our PE day is a Thursday.  Please ensure children have PE kit in school at all time.  Kit will be sent home at the end of each half term for washing.
