Year 2: Woodpeckers

Welcome to Woodpecker Class!


Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse all of the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera in our gallery page!

Be sure to return soon as we regularly update our pages.

Firstly, welcome to Year 2!


I hope you all had a relaxing break and the children are ready for the new term, which is full of exciting activities and discoveries. As usual we are looking forward to working together in partnership with parents, so if you have some spare time this term, please come and join us – please speak with me to arrange a mutually convenient time.


This term, our focus topic is Wild Weather. During this term, we will be exploring the extreme weather conditions experienced in Australia and Antarctica. In addition to gathering and learning facts about these vast lands, the children will have the opportunity to really become immersed in the events through report writing, humorous poems and postcards. In history we will be learning more about the native Aboriginal people who inhabited Australia many years ago. We hope to really blow you away this term with our amazing Aboriginal artwork!


If you have any questions or queries regarding school issues then please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your continued support.


Mr A. Rivett

Deputy Head Teacher, Lower School and Woodpecker Class Teacher
