Meet your teacher
Hi Ms Woodcock here! I can’t wait to be back with you all in September; I’ve worked for the trust since 2018 and have over17 years’ experience supporting and teaching in both primary and secondary school. I have worked with lots of different age groups of children throughout Rotherham, from EYFS to Year11. I have been involved with different children under a huge rainbow of different needs. A huge part of that experience has involved working with children with ‘superpowers’, a quality that carries a label of S.E.N.D. supporting the difference and ensuring equality of their needs. I have experience working with children with a range of difficulties and challenges when facing the adventure of education and life. I truly enjoy teaching all different ages of children and the adventures it brings.
I am a huge art fan -I just love art – Helping children to become confident artists is a real passion of mine. Everyone can draw- they just need to embrace the subject, shine through with confidence using an array of basic skills to achieve inspiration work. I enjoy all kinds of different music(especially live) from relaxing, calming ocean sounds to rock and heavy metal.
I am also a huge rugby fan – Joe Marler is my hero. In my spare time I manage an under 18’s team at Mosborough RUFC– I get roped into lots of other jobs too! My two children are grown up, one at University and the other an engineering apprentice, keep me on my toes, both play Rugby so a lot of my weekend are used up as ‘mums’ taxi’ If I am not with them you will find me walking my pampered pooch (Bella)around the peak district or snuggling up to my metre-long pet corn snake – Sammy. My favourite film characters are Little Mermaid and Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy- he is soooo cute! He makes me smile when he dances!

Areas of Learning
Our learning will cover Living Things, the Peak District and Anglo-Saxons. We will also be reading Stig of the Dump as our class novel.
Our topics are Earth and Space, capital cities and Vikings. Our final term’s learning will cover Plants, Technology and the World, Ancient Egypt, as well as a geographical study of Egypt. In Maths, we will do Times Tables Rockstars at least 4 times a week in order to learn all of our times tables to improve our speed and recall of these facts.
Our Class Dojo page will be updated regularly with messages, dojo points and photo updates. Homework and spellings will be given on Fridays each week and will need to be handed in the following Tuesday.
Once our PE days have been confirmed, we will let you know when these are; we will have one indoor and one outdoor slot. Please ensure your PE kit is in school (hung on your peg) every day. You will sometimes need wellies as we use the Wild Area for learning, and reward time but we will let you know about this in advance.
