Welcome to Woodside Class
Happy Easter Everyone!
We hope you all have a wonderful break and look forward to hearing about what the children got up to when we return!
The children have been doing so well with their writing over the last half term. They have been using their sounds to spell unfamiliar words, using finger spaces to make their writing clear and practicing their letter formation. Maybe they could show you some of their wonderful writing at home by writing about their Easter weekend? They could draw a picture of who they saw, what they did or a scene from the Easter Story which we learnt about this week.
Please make sure they bring it into school so we can celebrate it!
This half term our topic is called 'All creatures Great and Small'. We have introduced our topic by reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar which the children have really enjoyed. We have lots of exciting learning ahead of us this half term which includes minibeast hunts, lots of creative activities, designing our own minibeast and some special visitors who will be talking about and showing us a range of animals! As well as reading lots of stories about creatures we will also be looking at lots of non fiction books and talking about the different features.
At the end of the topic we will have learnt lots of new facts so make sure you ask us some questions!
We were so lucky with the weather on Monday morning as we experienced our very first forest session in Nomansland. The children were well wrapped up for a winter walk as it was bright but cold.
We learned some of the rules of Forest Friday and had fun following a 'Stick Man' picture trail.
We also had to collect some special forest treasure for Father Christmas.
Our morning ended with a very exciting trip back to school on the minibus.
Thank you to all the parent helpers who came along to support this activity.
Have a look at some of the pictures we took during the morning.

In our Phonics lessons, the children are learning their sounds really well and we are beginning to segment and blend words.
