What a fantastic finish to our Predator topic: a visit to Woodside Wildlife Park!

 

We saw an amazing array of predatory animals, as well as some rather less scary creatures. We were able to see the Bengal tiger and the Lynx cats at feeding time, we held snakes and a Bearded Dragon and loved seeing the penguins and the White Wolves. 

 

The children were given an educational guide from the Park Rangers and were able to wow the Park staff with their knowledge which they have learned from their studies in the classroom.

 

Behaviour of all children was impeccable and they were fantastic ambassadors for Woodlands Academy.

 

We all enjoyed such a brilliant day out.

As part of the preparation for The Big Sing at the Auditorium on 8th July, the children took part in a workshop introducing them to A Soldier Through Time. The children took part in drama workshops and began to sing and learn the songs which they will be performing alongside 700 pupils from across the borough. It was a fabulous afternoon and the children really immersed themselves in the subject.

 

The songs can be practised at home by searching on YouTube for Grimsby Jazz Projects A Soldier Through Time.

We have started a new writing focus - persuasive letter writing. Our purpose for writing is to persuade Mrs Green to let us adopt an animal. We have been researching the reasons why people adopt vulnerable animals and will be including these in our letters to Mrs Green. We really hope our letters are persuasive enough 🤞

TT Rockstars Launch

TT Rockstars Launch 1

29.4.19

 

After a successful trial we have launched TT Rockstars as a whole school. The children all have their personalised logins and are encouraged to use the website to help improve their rapid recall of times tables. 

Times tables knowledge is incredibly important. Times tables underpin so much of the maths curriculum, and are important to know in order for children to reason, problem solve and access many different areas of mathematics. 

We will be running a number of events around the site, including Battle of the Bands and weekly prizes for gaining new 'Rockstar Statuses'. Weekly year group winners of fastest speed and highest earners will go onto the dedeicated Wall of Fame in the atrium.

 

Rock on!

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed the holidays.

 

Our new topic for the Summer term is PREDATOR! The children will be learning about land, sea and air predators, gaining an understanding of their diets, habitats and where they can be found and creating their own ultimate predator. We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned and are confident the children will enjoy the topic.

Our new topic this half term is all about Ancient Greece. In English we are reading the story of Theseus and the Minotaur - we are beginning to write a diary entry extract as Theseus. 

 

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

WEEK 3 - 24 SEPTEMBER

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

 

WEEK 1 5TH SEPTEMBER 2018

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.
