General Information

Homework Diary - The homework diary that your child will receive is intended to be used as a communication tool between parents and staff for homework, reading or general enquiries. We will endeavour to check the homework diary every day so please encourage your child to have it in school with them every day. If you have any concerns you wish to raise which are more personal or require a more in depth response then please write a separate letter to your child's class teacher. 

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months and please also encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.

Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form which is kept in the school office. 

October 2018 Update

Year 4 had a fantastic day at Horton Kirby on Tuesday 2nd October. We visited the River Darent to deepen our understanding of how erosion, deposition and transportation impact upon the course of a river.

The children had lots of fun racing ducks in the river to measure the speed of the flow, and no ducks were lost in the process this year!

Back at the education centre, we learnt all about the River Darent from the source to the mouth. The children created their own rivers out of mud and took on the role of an engineer, creating flood barriers and dams to protect their houses made out of Lego.

An enriching and enjoyable day was had by all.

Egyptian Day 2018

On 30th October we began our new topic about Ancient Egypt with an exciting start as the children were visited by a mysterious visitor from the past. We were fortunate enough to have Oliver Naylor from 'Steps in Time' come to Woodlands again and he did not disappoint. The children learnt all about life in Ancient Egypt, from battles between the gods to how they prepared the dead for the afterlife. Throughout the day, the classes participated in activities to do with archaeology, mummification and hieroglyphics as the children learnt bundles of interesting new things whilst having lots of fun to start the term!
