17th September

Woodpeckers usually have PE on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child’s PE bag is in school on these days.

We have had a fantastic full week in Woodpeckers. We all enjoyed looking at the baby photographs and guessing which big boy or girl it was! You have all grown so much! It was very difficult to work it out! We have been doing lots of counting, and finding our way around the school, and learning all the different class names, as well as the different teachers! Using mirrors we have explored the different features on our face and have made some wonderful pictures. We have been using scissors to make some funny faces as well!

Well done Woodpeckers, you have had an excellent week!

Remember to look at the newsletter each week as we put on lots of information about what we are learning about, and if anything needs to be brought into school.

10th September

The children have all been amazing coming into school and sorting themselves out.They are doing brilliantly! They have been learning all about our school routines. Well done Woodpeckers you are wonderful😀

Can we please remind parents that any fruit or vegetables that are brought in need to be labelled in a bag or a little container. We have lots of fruit coming in and lots of it hasn’t had names on. Many thanks.


Your child will be coming home with a special book. This is to record any exciting things that you do together. It could be that you’ve been on a special walk, visited a castle, or taken the bus to town. The idea is that a page is filled in with your child , then they can share it with the class. (Adult or child can write a few sentences and a bus ticket, a leaf, or a photograph could be stuck in)

Our first 2 days at Sudley Infant School

It has been lovely seeing you all these past 2 days. You all looked so smart in your uniform. We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday morning. Remember to bring in your bookbag and your water bottle. Please make sure that they have your name on.

See you all with big smiles on your faces!
