Here you will be able to find out about the recent projects and activities we have been involved in. Look out for important class news here too!



In English, we explored the myth of King Midas and wrote our own versions. We have now moved on to the story entitled, 'The Stone Age boy', linking to our topic work.

'Fractions are fun' has been the cry in our maths lessons as we have tackled finding equivalents, ordering and comparing, adding and subtracting.

This week is World Religion week and our focus has been Sikhism. Later in the week, we will be trying our hand at Sikh dancing and art work. Watch this space for some pictures!

Year 3 had a wonderful trip to Sarehole Mill, to find out about the Stone Age.

Year 3 children participated in a drama workshop about The Stone Age.

Year 3 children participated in a Diwali dance workshop.

Year 3 visited the book fair today. They learned how to make chapattis and samosas and were also able to browse the extensive range of books.

Instructions. This week and next we are looking at instructions in our writing lessons. We have enjoyed making games up and writing instructions, giving verbal instructions on how to make a sandwich, looking at real life examples of instructions and identifying features.

Can your child talk to you about imperative verbs? Or maybe explain to you what chronological order means? Take 5 minutes to have a little discussion... We're sure you will be impressed.



Children are beginning to settle well into life as a junior at Woodgate Primary School.


In year three children are encouraged to become increasingly more independent.


Reading Books

Some children in year three will begin Accelerated Reading. Children will choose a book, they are expected to read the book both in school and at home. When the book is read they will complete an electronic quiz on the book.  The minimum expectation is for children to quiz at least twice a week.  


If your child is not an Accelerated Reader they will bring home a reading book which can be changed every Wednesday.


Please remember to log every read in order for efforts to be recognised.


PE kits


P.E Lessons will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

Due to Health and Safety reasons, children who do not come to school with the correct PE kit will not be able to participate in PE lessons.


Children must have a red top, black shorts and trainers.

Children must not wear earrings for P.E lessons.

Long hair must be tied back in a bobble.




Homework will be given out every Friday. We will give out spellings and maths homework.

Maths homework will need returning to school no later than Thursday morning to be looked at during our maths M.O.T lesson.


Spelling homework does not need returning as children will be assessed on their spellings every Friday.
