Woodpeckers (Year 5)
Welcome to Woodpecker Class!
Class Teacher: Mr Perkins
Professional Teaching Partner (PTP): Mr Smith
We offer a bright and friendly environment in which to learn, it motivates and engages the children. Putting them first, whilst providing opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to support learning, is at the heart of our curriculum. During our time in Woodpeckers, you can watch us grow in confidence, as we push ourselves out of our comfort zone to rise to new challenges, maintaining a Growth Mindset.
When planning lessons, we use the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them. Core texts used in English are carefully considered to cover a broad range of literature. Maths lesson are taught with a mastery approach where children are encouraged to gain a deeper understanding of concepts through the use of practical resources and pictorial representations.
We are very fortunate here at Midfield to have a wonderful outdoor space. We make use of this space by conducting many lessons - from all subject areas - outdoors!
We aim to foster a love of reading at Midfield; in Woodpeckers class our theme is Science Fiction. The pictures below provide a flavour of our reading corner:
