These stunning El Salvador crosses were designed and painted by all of Woodpeckers ready for their Easter Assembly. They are stunning and many members of staff have commented on the superb achievements by all of Woodpeckers!
March 2021: Here are Woodpeckers celebrating British Science week. The children learnt about innovation and became innovators themselves. They used STEM skills to design and make the shaky hand game. They shared ideas and worked together in small groups. Well done Woodpeckers!
Welcome to term 5 and 6 Woodpeckers!
We hope you all had a relaxing Easter break.
It's fantastic to be starting the summer terms with you all and look forward to some more wonderful learning from everyone.

PE: Mrs Lines will teach PE outside so please wear appropriate kit on Mondays. Please continue to arrive in your outdoor PE kit each Thursday, ready for Ben to teach you. Ben will always aim to be teaching outside. It is essential that all children wear a suitable, warm PE kit and bring spare shoes and socks that day. Please bring a carrier bag for muddy trainers and socks. Thank you.
Spellings: The copy of the Year 3/4 spelling list is here. We are so impressed by the dedication which the children are giving to learning these at home; their hard work is ensuring they are making fabulous progress. Children will continue to be tested on the Y3/4 words each Friday.
Reading: As usual, we ask you to read 5 different times at home each week to an adult. The adult will need to sign your reading record after you have read. Most children are free readers now. Children can bring a book from home or choose one from our class book shelf. We are here to help you choose a great book if you would like this. Please remember to always bring in your reading record every Friday for us to check your reads and then give you your well deserved raffle ticket for 5 reads and a parental signature.
Homework: Weekly homework starts in term 5. It will be set on a Friday and be due in the following Wednesday. We would like you to continue reading (as described above) as this is one of the most important skills to keep developing. Additionally, please continue to learn and practise your spellings and times tables each week. Everyone has a rock stars login which you can use as often as possible.
Thank you, to all Woodpeckers and your families, for all your dedication to your learning and being part of the Bemerton St John community.
