During the school closure, we would like you to complete some home learning. Depending on individual family circumstances, your capacity to do this may vary e.g. parent work commitments etc. Our advice would be to try to aim for about 2 hours of home learning each day. This ideally would be broken up into smaller chunks of time e.g. half an hour at a time. We do not want to put pressure on families during this already stressful and uncertain times so please do what you can. Teachers will be updating their class pages weekly so please check this regularly. Thank you for your continued support.

Curriculum Letter for Woodland – Jan 2020

Da Vinci’s Parachute

This term in Woodland Class we are learning all about Inventors. Da Vinci is thought of as one of the greatest inventors of all time, as well as an amazing artist. Most of his inventions were not actually made or tested by him. We had a go at creating a parachute based on Da Vinci’s design. We then tested it out and made design adjustments.

The Wright Brothers

We compared the Wright Brother’s gliders with Da Vinci’s gliders then made different paper plane designs and tested them.

Curriculum Letter for Woodland – Nov 2019

Gymnastics

We have enjoyed our Gymnastic lessons, learning about balancing and jumping.

Curriculum Letter for Woodland – Sept 2019

Clay Models

In Woodland Class we have been enjoying the book Beegu. In the book, Beegu was lonely and wanted to find some friends so we created Aliens that could be friends with him. We then created models of our aliens using clay.

Sunset Pictures

Using a colour wash we have created sunset pictures in the same style as the illustrations in Beegu.

Sensory Spelling in Woodland Class

The children enjoy learning their spellings in different ways.
