Grenoside Woods

A very warm welcome to Grenoside Woods class page. 


In our classroom your children will be taught by Miss Whitmore.

On Thursdays, Mrs Newton teaches us phonics and Maths, and Ms Hall teachers us Art and Music. Mrs Ost supports our learning and on Fridays we are joined by Mrs Fernandes and Mr Rodgers for swimming.

 Mrs Barsin is part of our team too, as our lunch time supervisor.


We will all be working hard all year and appreciate the support of all the parents in developing our children's learning at home! Some ways children can extend their learning at home is by using Spelling Shed, Mathletics and TT Rockstars. 





Topic - Ancient Egypt

Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt. The children will be learning about how Ancient Egypt was ruled, what they believed and what was important in their daily lives. The class have had two immersive learning experiences through Partake Theatre Group and by visiting the Ancient Egyptian exhibit at Weston Park Museum. 

Saint Ambrose

Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.

In Grenoside Woods, our class saint is Saint Ambrose. St. Ambrose was Bishop of Milan, and became very influential due to his music and writings about the faith. St. Ambrose’s feast day is the 7th of December.


We are all very excited about the star of the week trophy in our class and we are all working hard in hopes of getting it by showing some of the following qualities:

  • respect
  • team work
  • hard work
  • good listening
  • being thankful
  • being generous
  • being sensible

I wonder who will get it next? 

Can you practice your French Greetings?
