Welcome to Class 5!

Woodlands Warriors!

Class 5 took part in a handball tournament alongside pupils from Signhills Academy. The children practiced the skills needed for handball before playing in mixed teams against each other. They were amazing - lots of effort, team work and sportsmanship was displayed from all our children. 


Star performers of the day were Patryk and Carol-Ann.


Well done to all of the children smiley

Friday 8th February

We had a fantastic time on Friday afternoon creating volcano art. We used watercolours to paint the sky, tissue paper to create a volcano and then used straws to blow paint to make it look like an eruption.

We spent the afternoon watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with...


Our very own chocolate bars 😁😁


The children have been working on their questioning and letter writing skills in the hopes that they can persuade Mrs Green to allow the class to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They have been working hard all term and have loved reading the book so they all have their fingers crossed that after reading their finished letters Mrs Green will decide that it's a well-deserved treat. Fingers crossed 🤞

This week's new spellings (01.10.18)







Remember - we test spellings every Friday, dojo points are available for those children who bring back their spelling sheet.



Great British Bake Off

As we have been studying all things yummy in year 3, we thought the children could become star bakers for the day. We mixed up the two classes and the children spent the afternoon following a recipe to bake their own 'bread in a bag'. We will be using this experience to help them with instructional writing.


If you would like to have a go at baking your own bread in a bag, follow the link below



Fantastic factory visit!


To launch into our new project 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' year 3 went on an educational visit to the Morrisons Fish Factory. The children had an amazing day, finding out where their fish comes from, what happens to it on its way to the supermarket shelves, and were even treated to a sensational taste testing session. The children had very diverse tastes and couldn't decide which fish they liked best with salmon, smoked haddock and crab sticks coming top! It was a super trip which everyone enjoyed and really helped to excite the children about their new project back in the classroom.
