Welcome to Giant Redwood’s Class Webpage

Welcome to our class web page. Hopefully this will be a little portal so you can peep inside and see some of the exciting and amazing things we are doing in our class this year. We look forward to sharing with you our exciting learning adventures and letting you have a peek at our amazing work and the fun that we are having in class! Keep checking back to see more wonderful things as the year progresses and check out our blog posts at the bottom to see what we have been up to!


Useful Information

  • Homework will be given out every Friday and needs to be returned at the latest by the following Tuesday

  • PE will be every Friday. During the second part of Autumn Term, we will also be going swimming - more information to follow

  • Children need their reading book in school every day. Reading at home is one of the most important things you can do to support your child with their learning. Try to read with them for 10 minutes every day, asking them questions about what they have read to help them with their comprehension skills. We will get them to change their books as often as we feel it is needed. Reading diaries will be checked daily, please feel free to communicate with us via these diaries.

  • Mathletics and Reading Eggs usernames and passwords will be in their Reading Diary. We wonder who will get the most points and win the most certificates!

Spring Term

This term we will be using our imagination to find out all about different settings and places from Fairy tales and wondering 'What if animals could talk". Keep checking back to see some of the children's amazing work!



Autumn Term

Are imposible things ever possible?

The Victorians

In Designated Provision, we use a cross curricular approach to teaching. This term we are focussing on the Victorian era, a time of great change and full of exciting developments. We will be looking at all aspects of Victorian life and what life was like for a child in these times. We are excited to show you all we learn about school life, technology and great inventors!

Keep checking back to see some of the amazing work as we produce it!

The children produced some amazing dolls houses and were really proud of their work after evaluating different modern and Victorian dolls houses. We have some budding painters and decorators in the class!!! Well done Redwoods!


Our L.O.T. books ready to be filled with all of the amazing things we find out about the Victorians. Can you tell who is who from our Victorian Silhoutte art work?





We are always available at the end of the day, or are on the end of a phone, if you need us! We look forward to seeing the amazing steps that all of the children will take as we continue through the year!
