A huge welcome to all new year 3 children and their parents and carers! We have a sneaky feeling that this academic year is going to be one of the best so far.
The children in Class 3 have settled in fantastically and are already demonstrating the behaviour, effort and enthusiasm needed to become confident, expressive and keen learners. Miss Aullak and Miss Satchwell have been blown away by how hard the children have worked and how easily they have adjusted to their new routines and expectations.
It has been a very busy week in Class 3 with the children being introduced to the story, 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl, which will be the basis of their English lesson focus for the next few weeks.
This week has culminated in the children performing their first piece of drama to their peers in class. The children were asked to think of and develop a new trick for the Twits with a partner and then perform the trick to the class.
Take a look at the children performing their own tricks. I am sure you will agree that the children did an amazing job and should be very proud of themselves...we are!

Class 3 go 'Mad' for Science!
This week class 3 have continued exploring food groups and healthy diets in science. Everyone had lot's of fun learning about different food groups, why it is important to have a balanced diet and planning a healthy meal!
The children particularly enjoyed cutting out different foods and placing them into their correct categories on a 'Food Pyramid'.
This science topic is being reinforced in PSHE lessons on a Tuesday where the children are learning about the 'Eatwell Plate' and the importance of eating a healthy and balanced diet.
Take a look at the pictures of your children working really hard in their recent science lesson.
'Awful Auntie'...... or is it.....'Awful Aullak?!'
The children have had a super week and have started their new English focus, the hilariously funny, witty and absolutely awful book 'Awful Auntie' by the equally funny and witty David Walliams.
They have enjoyed reading sessions with Miss Aullak (AKA Awful Aullak) and Miss Satchwell. Everyone had fun discussing the characters as they were introduced, with many children having already read the story previously at home. Many of class three proved their self-control abilities after having to try really hard to stay tight-lipped about what was going to happen in the story...even though they were literally bursting with enthusiasm and excitement for the storyline!
The reading sessions were not short of a good giggle or two either! This book is very funny and the children are really excited to get started with their English work.
Class 3 earn their street cred!
On Monday this week (2.10.17) class 3 were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in an hour long street dance workshop led by an external street dance teacher. All the children had a fantastic time warming up, learning signature street dance moves and then choreographing their own mini-routine which they performed to their class, Miss Aullak and Miss Satchwell.
Have a look at the photographs of some of the children in action!
Class 3 visit the Mandir Temple in Derby.
On Monday this week Year 3 were lucky enough to be invited to visit the 'Mandir Temple' in Derby to support their current Religious Education topic, 'Hinduism'.
We would first like to say how impeccably behaved the children were and what excellent ambassadors for Woodville School they were.
A fantastic morning was had by all!
The visit began with a tour of the Temple where the children were able to see (but not touch) the beautiful deities of which they have been learning in lessons. The children sat excellently while they were given a talk about the Hindu faith and were very enthusiastic when given the chance to ask questions afterwards!
The talk was followed by an opportunity to work in small groups with an adult where they were able to try on different types of traditional Hindu dress. As I cam sure you can imagine, the children had a lot of fun doing this...take a look at some of the photographs from our trip. See if you can spot your child!

Class 3 make Fruit Kebabs!
On Monday afternoon this week, class 3 took part in their first cooking lesson in class where they prepared, chopped and made some very yummy, very delectable and very healthy fruit kebabs which they were able to eat afterwards with their friends.
As well as learning about how to prepare fruit and make an appetising snack, the children were also supporting their current PSHE topic where they are learning about being healthy, eating a balanced diet and the importance of fruit and vegetables. See if you can spot your child holding their fruit kebab in the selection of photographs below...
Our first half-term comes to a close...20.10.17
What a busy, fun, productive and exciting first half-term we have had here in class 3!
Miss Aullak thoroughly enjoyed sharing the good news of how well all of the children are doing during this at this weeks parents evening. We have received lots of positive feedback from parents about how well children have settled in to our class and how happy they are : )
We are encouraging children to take a well earned rest next week and have fun but don't forget to also encourage your child to complete their homework, practise their spellings and read, read read !!
We are sending children home with 2 reading books for over the half-term and we are looking forward to welcoming all children back in class refreshed and rejuvenated.
See you all soon !
Welcome back Class 3 !
Welcome back all children and families, we hope you have all had a very enjoyable half term holiday! Well done to all children in class 3 for coming back in to the classroom happy, keen to learn and enthusiastic. We have certainly had a busy first week back and everyone has worked really hard to complete their work . Miss Satchwell has enjoyed marking the children's homework which they completed over half-term and we are really impressed with the amount of children who took time out their busy, fun-packed half term holiday schedule to show their enthusiasm for learning by completing their homework to the best of their ability. Well done class 3!
This week the children have read the book, 'The day the crayons quit' to start their English topic for the start of the new half term. All of the children have really enjoyed reading this story and this was reflected in the drama work they produced on Wednesday in class. The children portrayed the crayons feelings in pairs and small groups through the discipline of 'freeze frame'. Miss Aullak was very impressed with the children's drama work, take a look at some of the photographs taken...can you guess what feeling your child is trying to portray?
Remembrance Assembly 10.11.2017.
Another lovely and productive week in class culminated with the children across the Federation joining together in the Memorial Garden adjacent to the school at 11 o'clock to observe a 2 minute silence and remember those that gave their lives for our freedom.
Great Britain still believes strongly in remembering those who fought not only in World Wars, but the more than 12,000 British Servicemen and women killed or injured since 1945. This week the children in class 3 have learnt about why were honour remembrance day, with our Worship Area in class being respectfully transformed with the poppy, famous quotes and facts about remembrance day itself.
Our Worship Area in honour of Remembrance Day.
Are we really 3 weeks into term already?!
Where is this term going?? The children and staff in class 3 can hardly believe that we are already 3 weeks into our Autumn term 2 with...dare I say it...Christmas fast approaching!!
Could it be that the children are just working so hard and having so much fun in the process? WE THINK SO !
This week came to a close with all children going 'spotty mad' for Children in Need to help raise money for this charitable and ever popular cause. Will you all be tuning into BBC1 tonight?
We couldn't end this week without a cheesy photograph of the children in class 3 dressed in their spotty clothes, Pudsey ears and accessories. Instead of shouting 'Cheese!' for the camera, the children shouted, 'Pudsey!'. I am sure you will all agree that the children look fantastic and we would like to thank you all for your kind donations.
See you all next week! Have a great weekend.
Class 3 just love the 'Drama!'
This week the children in class 3 have been learning about how people lived in the 'Stone Age' and how life back then differed to ours in the present day.
The children have been reading the story, 'The Stone Age Boy' with Miss Aullak in class and have found life in the stone age very interesting! It goes without saying that the children were extremely excited to re-enact a role-play of stone age life. They worked in groups to perform a role play of 'Life in the stone age'.
The children used both their knowledge so far and elements of the stone age boy story to help them create an accurate re-enactment of stone age life.
Sneak a peek at some of the photographs taken whilst the children were practising for their performance!
Stone Age Roleplay!
We are learning to be talented time tellers!
So far the children have shown great progress in our current 'Time' topic for Mathematics.
It is proving to be a very enjoyable topic for both the children and adults in class 3! This week saw the children recording and comparing time in terms of seconds , minutes and hours. This involved class 3 completing activities against the stop-watch. Amongst many other fun tasks, the children had such fun helping Miss Aullak to record how long it took Jack Evans, Noah, Andrew and Connor Wakeham to complete 30 laps of the classroom between them.
In the clip below, the class can be seen counting the last few laps while Miss Aullak holds the stop-watch.
While usually time can prove a difficult concept for most children to grasp, Class 3 are learning fast and having so much fun in the process!
World Book Day has landed in Class 3!
Forget the snow, the cold, the miserable and windy weather.....
The children have grabbed #worldbookday2018 with both hands and ran with it all the way to Class 3! How fantastic do they all look?!
The children are spending the morning thinking about their favourite book and are writing a book review to promote it.
We are having so much fun getting into character today and I am sure you will all agree that the children look absolutely fantastic!
We simply couldn't resist posting a sneaky picture of our class
Here's to the best #worldbookday so far!
1st March 2018 AKA #worldbookday2018
A big 'Thank you' to the lovely Mums of class 3
It was a pleasure to welcome the Mums, Grandmas, Nans, Aunties and Sisters of Class 3 into our classroom for our annual 'Munch with Mum' to celebrate Mothers' Day and the special ladies in our lives.
This year we decided to do things slightly differently. We really hope you enjoyed working with your child in a Mathematics lesson followed by a special musical performance and a slice of cake!
We hope you continued to be spoilt and pampered over the weekend by your loved ones.
