Hello and welcome to Woodpecker Class. We are Year 1 children and our teacher is Mrs Makda.

Interesting facts about Woodpeckers


  • Woodpeckers live in wooded areas and forests.  
  • They tap on tree trunks to find insects. 
  • Woodpeckers eat insects, fruit, acorns and nuts. 
  • When a woodpecker hatches, it is blind and does not  have any feathers.  
  • Woodpeckers have two tight clawed toes pointing in each direction to help them grip the sides of trees and balance while they hammer. 
  • Many woodpeckers also have thick tail feathers, which they press against a tree surface to help them support their weight.
