A Specialist School supporting pupils with dyslexia and related learning difficulties

Redwood Year 8

Welcome to Redwood

This year in English we will be  using Michael Morpurgo’s “Warhorse” as our inspiration and will explore how the author uses language to create character and relationships.  Later we will be looking at morals and interpersonal relationships via Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice”.

In maths we will be exploring geometry and measures; algebra; fractions, decimals and percentages; statistics and probability; and ratio and proportion.


Our science topics include the periodic table; energy and forces; health and the human body; and earth science. 

In Art we will be studying the Surrealism movement through Jacek Yerka and Vladimir Kush, and Pop Art through Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. 


These are just a few of the exciting things we will be learning this year.
