Woodlea Junior School


Class of 2018 - 3G

It's time to say good-bye.

Our year has come to an end.

We've made more cherished memories and many more new friends.

I've watched your children learn and grow and change from day to day.

I hope that all the things we've done have helped in some small way.

So it's with happy memories I send them out the door,

with great hope and expectations for what next year holds in store! 

Thank you

Mrs Younis

80th Birthday celebrations at Woodlea!

Woodlea Junior School celebrated its 80th Birthday on Thursday 21st June. The children had a tremendous day and all participated throughout the day. During the day, the children had the opportunity to listen and speak to a historian, Peter Houghton, who was speaking about the history of Leyland - focusing on similarities and differences over time. The children were also actively involved in many different activities throughout the day including sports, music and dance sessions, a short lesson in the 1930's and observing artefacts from the 1930's.

A brilliant street party was held at lunchtime and many past members of staff came and joined the celebrations. A massive thank you to all the Parents, Grandparents and Guardians for supporting this great celebration and for taking the time and effort to support children with their costumes for the day!

Scoot Safe

Last year alone, there were over 20,000 injuries resulting in hospital treatment, from child scooter accidents.


Our school was offered scooter safety training called ‘Scoot Safe’ by South Ribble Borough Council; this was a safety training programme for year 3.


The lesson was  delivered by South Ribble Borough Council Bike Ability staff and the aim of the day was  to improve  children's confidence and stability whilst riding their scooter.


The training was delivered on the school playground.  Children were  supervised at all times and they had they all thoroughly enjoyed this and had a fabulous time.

Reading stars!

Well done to our reading stars, Charlie Holland and Millie James, who have managed to collect the largest amount of leaves on the magic reading tree. They have read at least 4 times per week since the start of term. 


The children had an amazing time learning about being British! They investigated famous British buildings in London, such as Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral and The Houses of Parliament. The children thoroughly enjoyed researching and learning new interesting facts about the various British buildings. Take a look at some of the work that took place!

Hello and welcome to 3G!

Welcome to Woodlea Junior School!

In Gorilla class Mrs Younis is the class teacher and we also have Mrs Hafiz and Mrs Tully as our class teaching assistants.


We hope you have had a great holiday and a restful break.

The children in Gorilla class have made a wonderful start to the new year. They have all settled in rapidly and are aware of the daily routine. They have developed a superb relationship with their buddies, who are always available throughout the day for any support or guidance. They are all hard-working, committed and eager to learn new skills and techniques!


Our first topic for the Autumn term is 'There's No Place Like Home'.

In this topic we will be looking at our local area and the geography of the United Kingdom.

We will also compare maps, looking at similarities and differences between old maps and new maps.


We hope you enjoy reading about and viewing pictures of our hard work over the year!  

Homework will be given out every Friday and will be due back the following Thursday.

Please encourage the children to read daily and do not forget to sign the yellow reading records as they will be checked weekly.

Many thanks.
