Welcome to the Rising Stars page!
This is where you will find out all the information you need about
More-Able, Gifted and Talented at Woodville.
DCSF defines gifted and talented children as:
“ Children and young people with one or more
abilities developed to a level significantly ahead
of their year group (or with the potential to develop
You may find that your son or daughter has been identified as Gifted or Talented in a particular area of the curriculum. We will endeavour to provide a challenging programme of sessions to extend and develop mastery within their particular area of strength. As a school we are committed to ensuring that every child meets their full potential.
Children may be invited to attend groups, clubs or lessons or given information with suggested activities for you to do at home. On this page you will find links or documents to help support your child develop their gift or talent!
If you or anyone you know has an area of expertise and the time to donate to our G & T programme please let me know! We are always grateful for other interesting ways of supporting our children.
Teachers are currently assessing children against the criteria set out by the DFE to decide if they are working a rate significantly higher than their peers. Since the introduction of the new curriculum, the expectations for these children are much higher. With that said, please do not worry if your child has not been placed on the register this term. As children progress at different rates, this is to be expected. Children will be supported and stretched within their classes to ensure they receive the correct extension work to occupy their busy brains!
Mrs Huggett's project group 2017/18
I am continuing to run my project group from years 1-6 and continuing to extend the group sessions to embed maths and literacy throughout each project.
In doing this, we hope to include more children in this enrichment opportunity.
If your child is selected to attend one of these activities, you will receive a letter detailing this. If you have any questions please contact me through the school office.
As well as this there will be many PE opportunities this year for children who excel in this area. There are also some Maths and Literacy sessions running at Collingwood School for selected year 5 pupils.

Autumn 1 2017/18 - Year 4 & 5 Literacy
This half term the year 4 and 5 children have been studying a silent film called The Piano. They listened to the soundtrack carefully before deconstructing the story and writing their own version. They then finished the block by creating their own silent film using the same soundtrack.
Please enjoy watching this wonderful story played out by the children of Woodville school.
Year 2 & 3 Literacy
The year 2 and 3 pupils have been studying a different silent film called Powerless. They started by deconstructing the plot, generating lots of elaborate vocabulary and then finished by writing their own fantastic versions of the story.
They completed the block by creating freeze frames of important events in the story.
