Mrs Mandy Bolton
Year 6 Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Woodpeckers class where your teacher is Mrs Stephens and your teaching assistant is Mrs Bolton. Below, you will find some useful general information about being a Woodpecker. On the right you can find out everything you need to know about your home learning.

PE days
The Woodpeckers have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Children wear their PE kits to school and for safety purposes, children also need to remove any earrings or jewellery and long hair should be tied back before coming to school, wherever possible.

Water bottles
Please ensure your child brings a labelled bottle of water to school each day.  The children are advised to take their bottles home each evening to wash them and bring them back refilled the next day. Please note juice or squash is not permitted as a drink throughout the day.

Outdoor clothes
As the weather begins to change please make sure that your child has a puddle suit or waterproof trousers and a coat to wear at break times. Please provide wellingtons to wear at break times too rather that old shoes as this will keep your child’s feet clean and dry.

Equipment you will need

All stationery will be provided, children are not permitted to bring a pencil case. School will provide a reading scheme book alongside a book of the child's choice, these should be in school every day.

Reading at home

Home reading should be recorded in the reading record provided - we aim for 5 reads per week. Reading records are checked regularly in school on a Monday.
