We have started decorating hearts and adding a positive message which will then be attached to the gate in the shape of a rainbow. On the gate we have attached a wallet full of different coloured hearts for you to decorate, write messages on and cut out. For those of you that are unable to pick one up from school, we have attached a document with the templates on for you to print at home. This will also be on the class pages on the website. All completed hearts can either be left in the finished wallet on the gate (for those of you out on your daily walk!) or scanned and emailed to the admin address so that we can print them. We will then laminate them and tie them to the gate.
We will keep you updated on twitter as to the progress we are making.
Take care and stay safe.
The Wood End Team.
Home based learning
Parents and carers,
Due to school closure we are providing a range of learning resources for children to access at home. It would be useful if your child could spend some time each day on English, Maths and Reading whilst also remaining active.
Teachers will be uploading links and resources regularly so please continue to check the class page each Monday.
If your child is self-isolating we have posted details of your child's log ins you should receive this information in the next couple of days.

Week Beginning 23.03.2020
Week Beginning 30.03.2020
We have set up a new scheme on TT Rockstars where the children will follow a set programme and automatically progress through levels. Whilst it may initially seem as though the children have gone back to the beginning, those children who know their times tables will quickly progress through the stages until they are at the correct level.
We do expect children to read regularly at home for 10 mins a day as this has a big impact on their learning. Other homework set is there to support and consolidate work in school. We do not expect work at home to take longer than the maximum time given. We understand that on occasion e.g. the family going away for the weekend that homework may not be completed on time.
|Practice your Times Tables with Rock Stars log-on link|
Log-ons for both the above sites will be given to the children by the teacher.
Year 3 trip to Celtic Harmony Camp - Wednesday 23rd October 2019
On Wednesday, we went on a trip to Celtic Harmony Camp, near Hertford. First, we learned how to grind wheat into flour using a quern stone and visited a herb garden to find out what herbs were used hundreds of years ago. After enjoying our lunch in the roundhouse, we used a weighted loom and shuttle to weave some clothes. We twisted string to make bracelets and dyed them in crushed plants to make them colourful. We traded our coins and bought some items from the shop. It was an exciting experience and we would like to thank the adult helpers for coming with us.
