Welcome to Redwoods

Redwoods – About Us

As the oldest children in the school are all together in this class, a super attitude to learning is expected at all times. The teaching in Redwoods caters to a range of learning styles to ensure all children make the maximum possible level of progress. The children are always busy thinking about the next steps in their learning.

Miss Graves teaches Redwoods and Mr Zilkha and Mrs Fraser are Teaching Assistants in the class .


P.E takes place on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their kit in school each week.


Homework is handed out every Friday and is to be handed in the following Thursday. It consists of either Maths and/or English and spellings. It is expected that your child will read every night.
