Welcome to Woodpeckers Class!

We're 'tapping' into our learning! 




We are a mix of Year 3 and Year 4 children.
Our Class Teacher is
Mrs Palmer
Our Teaching Assistants are:
Mrs Blomquist
Mrs Troop (Monday-Wednesday)
Mrs Edwards (Thursday- Friday)


Through our exciting and stimulating topics, we will ensure the children are exposed to a rich, broad based curriculum.


Our History and Geography topics are:



Autumn Term: The Roman Republic, The Roman Empire

Spring Term: Roman Britain, Christianity in three empires

Summer Term: Arabia and Islamic civilisations


Autumn Term: The Rhine and the Mediterranean, Population

Spring Term: Coastal processes and land forms, Tourism

Summer Term: Earthquakes and Deserts



Each term we produce a Curriculum Map that details what the children will learn. 
The Curriculum Maps are designed to give as much information as possible

about what the children will be learning at school each 

term so that they can be supported at home.
       These documents can be found on the Woodpeckers' Google Classroom 22-23





Further details regarding our learning can be found on our termly topic web, as well as our class newsletter which will be uploaded to Google Classroom at the start of each new term.


Google Classroom is an excellent way to keep in touch, and is my main way of communicating/sharing our learning with parents at home so please ensure that you accept your invitation to join our class.

Things to remember:

                                  Our P.E. days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The children should come to school in their PE kits on those days. 




Our School Council Representatives are:


Jacob and Liberty





Currently the children are set an English and a maths task each week which is designed to consolidate the children's learning  in class. They also receive weekly spellings which they should practise at home. In addition to this, it expected that the children read daily and practise their times tables. All homework is set on a Monday for return the following Monday.
All home learning can be accessed via the Google Classroom and is submitted there too. More information about homework can be found in the Google Classroom via the Parent Correspondence tab.
Don't forget you can also access and practise your maths skills on Doodle maths and you could also do some research in preparation for a class talk.
