Y3 and Y5 Holiday Catch-Up Sessions

During  the summer we will be ran catch-up sessions for Y3 and Y5 children  on the Tuesday and Thursday of the 2nd, 3rd, & last week of the holiday (4th, 6th, 11th, 13th, 25th & 27th August) and some limited sessions for other year. The letters we sent on this are below. Look out for similar activities at half term and Easter holidays.


If you have children in these years you should have had an invitation via parent mail and you need to book a place. Children will have upbeat maths and English lessons in the morning and craft or sports activities in the afternoon. The whole day is free including lunch and snacks and for your convenience  siblings can also come to a special holiday club at the same time but they will not be having the lessons or activities. We will as far as possible be keeping children in their own class groups. Due to Covid restrictions we are not running our usual holiday club over the summer except to key workers' children who are now already booked.  We will be assessing all children in September and providing more catch-up sessions according to need.


This the invitation letter sent to Y3 & Y5 parents


Dear Parents,

Year 3/5 Holiday Workshops


During the summer holidays we regularly run holiday workshops for Y5 children about to go into Y6. This year, due to the disruption cause be COVID-19 we are offering similar activities for Y3 before they go into Y4. There will be English and maths learning sessions in the morning between 9 a.m. and 12 noon.  The children will receive a free lunch, then between 1 and 3 p.m. there will be fun-based activities for them.  To make it more convenient for you children can also attend our holiday club from 8 a.m. before the sessions and after the sessions to 6 p.m. free of charge. Any brothers or sisters at Woodside can attend holiday club for the whole day free of charge.


Please note, children can only attend the fun afternoons if they attend the morning learning sessions.

We understand that children may not be able to attend all the sessions but we urge you to enrol your child for as many as they can. Please let us know any of the sessions you would like your child to attend as soon as possible, using the ParentMail form, as we have limited spaces.


Yours faithfully,
