We’ve been blown away today with this project homework! A 3D printed brain, skull and section of spine! This fantastic technology is helping medical professionals all around the world and we’re so excited to be able to showcase this around school. A great big thank you to Jude and his family for this amazing opportunity

The children have been learning about animals, including humans, in Science. They have been studying skeletons and for their homework they have built creative natural skeletons and labelled them with the bones we have been learning about.


To link with this topic, Project Homework was on the human body. We’ve had lots of different types of work! From a PowerPoint to a board game and some wonderful life sized skeletons.

A truly, amazing experience for 3G this week when the Stone Age arrived bringing the era to life!

Big work superstars!

Reading in an unusual place!

Fantastic work today with Donna for our Scoot Safe session. The children have worked very hard learning about the L check, how to fit their helmet properly, some fun ways to ride their scooter safely and also how to cross the road from the safety of our arena.

Big Work Superstars!

Big Work in 3G!

Today, on #RemembranceDay , we honour our fallen heroes, who have served and sacrificed for the freedom of our country. The Gorilla class took part in a two minute silence held at 11am on the playground of Woodlea Junior School #LestWeForget 





Armistice Day!


“The living owe it to those who no longer speak to tell their story for them.” 

A great big thank you to Jude for bringing his Great Grandfather’s amazing medals and scrapbook from his time fighting in The Battle of Normandy in 1944. We really appreciated getting to see such a fantastic piece of our countries history. What a great way to discuss Remembrance Sunday and the soldiers that have fought for the country. 
Thank you
Mrs Younis

Welcome to Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3 everyone. Mrs Younis is the Gorilla class teacher, supported and assisted by Mrs Grose and Miss Wilson, who are the teaching assistants. We are really looking forward to teaching your children and have got some great lessons planned. You will be able to access some of the children's exciting work and photographs on the website. 


In English, we will be learning about 'A Bear called Paddington'. All of our English sessions for the first half term will be based around this story. In Maths, we will be focusing on number and place value, following the new 'Maths No Problem' scheme. This Singaporean approach to teaching mathematics develops pupils' mathematical skills and confidence. It also makes mathematics more engaging and interesting.

We will be studying what life was like during the Stone Age and will hold our very own Stone Age day on the 25th November 2020. Your children will have the opportunity to gain a full insight to what life was like during this era and how the hunter gatherers survived. 

Children should be reading consistently everyday, they are expected to read at least 4 times per week. Reading books will be handed out on a Monday and should be returned the following Friday.


P.E kits must be in school at all times and should stay in school until half term. Our P.E sessions will take place on a Monday and Tuesday with Mr Henderson. An outdoor P.E kit is required and should be sent into school as soon as possible because the children will be taking part in sports activities held outside.

If you have any questions or you are uncertain about anything, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Younis via the school office.


Thank you for your support.

3G started their rock unit within their own school grounds, participating in a rock detective walk to begin to recognise the different types of rocks, their physical properties and their uses. They began to describe the rocks and grow their vocabulary to do so. We walked all around our school to find things that are made from rocks. Here is what we spotted!
