Our Curriculum

At The Woodside Academy we pride ourselves in implementing a stimulating and creative curriculum.

Each year group starts each topic with an exciting range of activities that enthuse and help to motivate our children. Learning is brought together at the end of the topic in a purposeful way that gives the children the opportunity to share their knowledge and understanding.
