Welcome to Woolley Woods!
"I came that they may have life, and have it to the full"

Here you will be able to see our exciting learning and activities that we get up to throughout the year.
Autumn Term 2022
Our topic this term will be all about The Indus Valley.
Our Philosophical Question to discuss this half term is:
What legacy have the Ancients left us?
We are looking forward to this term, seeing where our learning takes us, as we begin to consider transition and change, moving onto Year 6 or even Year 7.
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 Wooley Woods, our class saint is Saint Christopher. St. Christopher was a martyr of the Roman empire and is most well-known as the patron saint of travelers. St. Christopher’s feast day is the 25th of August.
At St. Patrick's our day begins and ends with prayer and our mission to be like Jesus is at the forefront of everything we do. We celebrate R.E. in many different ways throughout the year.
Godly Play is an amazing tool to help enhance the spiritual growth of our children at St Patricks. Over the last few years we have been building up our own set of resources, so that we can deliver Godly Play sessions in class.
Prayer warriors/ liturgy leaders
Some of our Y5 children have been trained, so that they can deliver liturgical prayer and Godly Play stories to our class and to other classes in KS1 and KS2.
We end each RE topic with a very special Liturgical prayer, planned and led by our children. Parents/ Carers, Headteacher, other staff members and father are all welcome to celebrate the end of our topic.
The children studied 'In Flanders Fields' the poem written by John McCrae. They were inspired to write their own remembrance poems and create their own artwork.
Interfaith week- Judaism
Throughout Judaism week, we studied the faith by carrying out research, we created non-chronological reports and painted beautiful Menorahs. We shared artefacts, such as the Torah, Yad, Kippah and Seder plate.
We had a class Viking Day where we dressed up as Vikings and put all of our learning in to practice. We made Viking bread and had the chance to taste it, it was delicious. We designed, made and painted shields and even had a battle on the yard.
We enjoy our science lessons, our favourite thing to do is carry out experiments/ fair tests, observations and collect our own research. We work in groups to come up with hypotheses and to carry out the experiments fairly, we are also very good at recording our data.
