Topic - Autumn Term 1 -  Who do you want to be?

We begin the start of the year settling everyone into school and into the school routine. Our theme will be focussed on ‘people who help us’ and the children will discuss what they want to be when they grow up

For more information on our topic and how this will be covered by the key national curriculum subjects , please refer to our curriculum newsletter.

Spring is officially here. So lets get planting and learn all about what plants need to grow healthily and strong.  

 

Topic - Spring Term 2 - Who lives in a house like this?

Homework

Please support your child by reading to them as often as possible. Practicing writing their name and ensuring that children can form their letters. At Woodhouse West we believe that learning at home is a key aspect of children’s development. It helps children improve and consolidate key skills, and provides a valuable opportunity for children to share with their parents/carers learning they have been doing at school  Click here for the home school agreement.

Each term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class
teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children. Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to
homework@woodhousewest.sheffield.sch.uk
