Welcome to Redwoods

Redwoods

Redwoods class is home to oldest children in 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.

Miss Graves teaches Redwoods and Mr Zilkha and Ms Robbins are Teaching Assistants in the class .
