Woodpecker Class Woodpecker Class

Welcome to Woodpecker Class! We are a class of Year 5 and 6 children and our teacher is Mrs Butcher. Mrs Wood and Mrs Wilford support us every morning and Mrs Glover and Mrs Woodgate support us on two afternoons each.

As the oldest pupils in the school, we are given greater responsibilities throughout the school and we endeavour to set a good example to others at all times.

We have lots of fun and cover a range of curriculum areas in our topic work. Here are some of the topics we have studied in the last couple of years:

We have also enjoyed many school trips including:

Throughout the year we also take part in the school’s Harvest Festival, Christmas Carol Concert and Easter Service, often at our village church. Year 5 and 6 usually perform in end of year musical production for the community and parents too.

Homework is set every Friday and completed by the following Wednesday. We also have a weekly spelling test and a multiplication/division fact test every week.

We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon (and sometimes on a Friday) so we need to have our kit in school on these days – kits live in our individual lockers. We all write in blue handwriting pens or fountain pens (NOT biros).

Throughout the year, we share photographs and school news via Twitter (@ClipstonSchool), showing various activities, inside and outside the classroom that we have enjoyed! You do not need to be a member of Twitter, or follow us, so please visit us at to get more of a flavour of the learning opportunities on offer.
