Welcome to Redwoods


Redwoods class is the home to the oldest children in our school – Year 5 and 6.

As role models for younger children, Redwoods take their whole school responsibilities seriously, they model excellent behaviour, a positive attitude towards school and learning, taking pride in their work at all times.

Learning in Redwoods is engaging and challenging. Redwoods children are exposed to a variety of  teaching styles which ensure all children are excited and enthused in their learning, make the maximum possible progress while also developing independence.

Ms Clarke teaches Redwoods with Mrs Fraser supporting the learning in the class. Mrs Hawling teaches arithmetic and Computing on a Friday morning.
