A new year and new learning opportunities in Woodpeckers

We’ve had a busy start to the year in Woodpeckers, and are very excited about our new topic – Julia Donaldson.

We LOVE books by Julia Donaldson and are building quite a collection in class! We’ve been exploring The Gruffalo and are learning to use Makaton to sign the main characters. We’ve used our senses to explore different parts of the story and have been doing some fun art for our Gruffalo display. We’ll share it with you when it’s finished. Next week we’re going to make Gruffalo crumble…yummy! Of course we have also been busy with Forest School and PE, and are doing really well with our Stage 2 Attention Wiltshire (Bucket) sessions. Soon we are going to start Stage 3 where we take turns with an activity!
