Dear Parents and Carers, 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for everything you have done in what has been an extraordinary year full of unexpected changes for us all and especially for the children. We can all agree that they have been resilient throughout and have adapted well in difficult circumstances.

It has been a joy to teach all the children in Oak Class. We can all take away many happy memories or our time together in school as Oak Class, from an incredible Christmas performance, performing Drummer Boy on the African drums to our adventures in the woods during our day trip to Shorne Woods Country Park. This will be a year we will never forget. 

I wish you all a restful and enjoyable summer holiday and all the best for next year when we all return to school. 

Thank you.

Stay safe and take care, 

Miss Yasmin

Dear Parents and Carers, 

We are nearly at the end of term and we can all agree that this has been a very strange one! I want to thank you all for the support throughout the term keeping your child engaged and working through the homework packs. I know this has not been an easy period but I hope you’ll agree it does feel like we are starting to emerge through the other side and into a new normal. 

Looking to the future, personalised transition packs for next year will be sent home shortly with information about your child’s new class and class teacher. Please take time to read through these with your child so they can begin to prepare for their return to school and the changes that they will experience.

Please continue to work through the chapters of the story, answering the questions for each video. Remember to encourage the use of full sentences and capital letters. When you reach the end of the book, pupil’s can complete the book review.  

I look forward to our telephone calls this week. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help support you and your child.

Take care,

Dear Parents and Carers, 

I hope you have all had a wonderful week.

This week’s theme at Woodside Academy is Wellbeing Week. Our pupils have endured many unexpected changes and many feel as though they have missed out on so much. It may be very difficult for the children to voice their concerns or questions they have which can leave them with many different negative emotions. Within the Key Stage 3 Wellbeing pack there are activities to help discover what can help your child feel happy, healthy and calm. 

One idea is to make a happiness box, this can be decorated by your child then filled.  The box can contain objects that remind them of a happy time, photos of people that make them happy or items that they can use for an activity to help them feel happy, like their favourite DVD. 

There are many more ideas within the pack which can be found via this link:

You may like to take photos and to share your child’s successes with us. Photos will be gratefully appreciated, please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., please state in the email if you are happy for these to be shared through social media and in the school newsletter.

I hope your child is still enjoying the Jack and the Beanstalk story packs, the final 4 parts were delivered in the homework pack last week.  I am really pleased with the positive responses to this work so far.  When all the parts of the story are complete, your child may like to do  a book review using the following template. 

Book Review

Woodside Virtual Tour is now available to view online, it was kindly produced by volunteers last week. If your child is missing school it might be nice for them to take the virtual tour via YouTube.  See if your child can spot any of their friends or the new additions we have made around the school.

I look forward to our telephone calls this week. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help support you and your child.

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope this good weather we are having is helping to lift spirits and encouraging quality time spent outdoors.

This week is Science week at Woodside Academy. We have put together a wonderful array of activities to do at home including lots of outdoor learning ideas and activities around the theme ‘Carnival’.  Science week activities can be found here:

https://www.woodside.bexley.sch.uk/learning-from-home/additional-information/projects-to-do-at-home

Please explore the activities in both the KS3 and Primary packs. In the primary pack there is more focus on planting, growing and insects which we hope spark enthusiasm for the children. I am sure there are many activities you’ll love to try with your children from either pack.  As always, please can I encourage you to take photos and to share your child’s successes with us. Photos will be gratefully appreciated, please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., please state in the email in you are happy for these to be shared through social media and in the school newsletter.

Maths

Please find below a maths activity which links to the carnival theme with adding amounts of money that could be spent at the funfair. There are two versions; the first uses number bonds to 20 and the second has addition with pounds and pence. 

Adding Money Funfair Up To 20p

In addition to the Jack and the Beanstalk homework, which I hope pupils are working their way through, I have prepared a comprehension activity from a Bernard Bear clip on YouTube.  This is similar to an activity we enjoyed in class so your child will be familiar with the cartoon and activity.  After watching and talking about the video clip, pupils should then look at the images and describe what is happening in that part of the clip. There is a work bank provided to help them compose sentences.

I look forward to our telephone calls this week. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help support you and your child.

Take care,
