WISHING ALL OUR FAMILIES A LOVELY HALF TERM from Mr Hazelby and Mrs Cole.

SEE YOU ALL IN TERM 2!

Science: Solids, Liquids and Gases

In science, to show how solids, liquids and gases form from tiny, microscopic molecules, Woodpeckers had fun banding close together , then in tandem and finally dispersing across the playground. We collected our ideas in chalk on the playground of examples of solids, liquids and gases too.

Finishing off our hospital designs and models!

We finished painting our models of the hospital and here are some of the results! A lot of hard work went into them and focus and concentration! We used our first designs to help us construct them and chose the colours and styles ourselves to finish off. Take a look!

Our Finished Models of the Hospital!

Jonah and the Whale!

In RE this week, we read and acted out the story of Jonah and the Whale!

Mr Hazelby put us into groups, each group with a part to act out in the story: Jonah, the wicked people of Nineveh, the crew on the boat in the storm and God!( Mr Hazelby played the whale! ).

We thought about the action and the story then acted out our parts in order.

We talked about why Christians still read this story: we thought it showed how God helps us and the story also teaches us to do the right thing and not run away!

Jonah and the Whale!

A busy week this week! Mrs Paul, our art co-ordinator set us a competition challenge to design and build the Evelina children's hospital! Using our designs and our artistic versions of photos of the hospital, we looked at the materials, colours and shapes that we could use then built and finished our models.

Have a look at our work in this presentation: there's drawing, colouring, sticking, cutting and designing! 

We used our designs to help us decide on our finished models. 

THANK YOU FOR THE HARVEST!

A VERY HEARTFELT AND HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OUR WOODPECKERS FAMILIES FOR THEIR GENEROSITY IN GIVING FOR OUR HARVEST! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
This week is harvest and we performed Autumn Days by Estelle White on our zoom collective worship after rehearsing line by line and learning about the pitch and the tune of the song. We also brought in harvest boxes with food for those less fortunate than ourselves and discussed in collective worship this week how we can show compassion for others in the acts of kindness we can do.
