Grenoside Woods

A very warm welcome to Grenoside Woods class page. 


In our classroom your children will be taught by Ms Guy and Mrs Chappell.

After Easter Mrs Newton will be our class teacher. On Fridays we are joined by Mrs Alyas for swimming and on Thursdays Ms Hall teaches us art or Design Technology.

Mrs Opoh also supports our learning. 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! 





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.

Saint Ambrose


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? 

At Christmas we did a 'reverse advent calendar', collecting food and toiletries for St Wilfred's Centre which supports vulnerable and homeless people in Sheffield. We also donated money which each child sent with a message, to give people a hot drink, a shower, a laundry wash etc. We chose St Wilfred's as we thought our class saint, Saint Ambrose, would approve as he is patron saint of beggars!

St Ambrose's feast day - We ate pandoro cake as St Ambrose is patron saint of Milan and we found out about charities that support the homeless and thought about what it would be like to have to live in a cardboard box!
