Welcome to Woolaston School!


We are extremely excited to welcome your children to our classroom, whether this is the start of their school journey or they are returning to us after their first year at our school. We have been working hard to create an exciting curriculum that will help to develop your children's academic and social skills. Our aim is to meet the needs of all of our pupils and to inspire a love of learning.


If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to get in contact.


Every term we will follow a new topic and we will let you know the title and what we are studying on this page. 


Our PE lesson will be every Thursday.


Please send in a PE kit consisting of black shorts and a white t shirt or polo shirt  and black daps or black/white trainers. Children may also wear navy or black leggings or tracksuit bottoms and a navy or black sweatshirt. In the first week of the school year we will provide a logo drawstring bag to keep their PE kit in. As with all other items please label everything! This PE kit will be kept on their peg in the cloakroom and sent home half termly for washing. Hair should be tied back and earrings taken out if possible. 




This is a crucial age for children to be developing their reading skills and we will be encouraging a love of reading and the development of phonic ability. Children will be given a book to bring home and we would love for you to read it with them. A school logo book bag will be provided in the first week of the new school year.
