Welcome to Woodpeckers Class webpage 2019-2020.

Woodpeckers have settled brilliantly into year 2. They have been working incredibly hard and have produced some amazing pieces of work. We are proud of their achievements! Keep it up!

We have a busy term ahead and are excited to be creating Brilliant Braintree brochures. It's been fun researching Braintree and its history.
