Welcome to Woodville School

Week 11 of Home learning (22.6.20)


  • In place of a class Big Read story (which the teachers used to read aloud each day at school) it would be great to know that everyone is reading the same chapter book together. Go to to access the free ebook of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ retold by Michael Morpurgo


  • You should all be able to read this independently ; several pages per day. If you are struggling to do so, then you can have it read to you.
  • In 2 weeks time we will be doing some work related to this story about how to trap a wolf/goblin/ghost/vampire etc ourselves! We will also do some music and other activities linked to this story, for our final 2 weeks in year 3.


  • Mymaths - There was not much choice on the homework site relating to this week’s subject area of mass (weight), but some has been set. I have also set a second homework in case you want it, to practice number work and problem solving. You can also access TT Rockstars and Numbots, as well as visiting all of the direct links provided in the maths icon below the weekly planning folders on the main 3P class page, for additional/support activities and games.
  • Just for fun here is an 8 Times Tables game

Try the next step on from where you got to last week


These Art activities are to last for the rest of the school year. They will be copied and pasted across to each new week of Home Learning. Work on them at your own pace. Each week an Art Facebook post will go up and you can show off whatever you have done that week on there. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘


Option 1 - Click on the Newsround link and journey through the optical illusions. What do YOU see each time? Rabbit or raven in this photo? - Moving or still? How the brain tries to make sense of confusing images.




Option 2 - Google search the artist called Escher. Look at his clever artwork. He used optical illusions to create amazing pictures. Some have pictures which seem to change from 2D to 3D. Some have stairs that seem like they go nowhere, and some have two animals or characters which slot together perfectly (tessellate), so that your eyes only see one creature at first - and then the other. It takes your eyes and your brain a little while before they are able to see both.


Option 3 -You can create your own tessellated picture using regular 2D shapes -or you can use the lizard template in the link below. (To saves printer ink you could just print one and lay your blank sheet over the top to trace the lizard and then reposition your paper to draw the next one. Make sure that they slot together perfectly)



Option 4 - Now try colouring some of his tessellated shape pictures. Click on the links to either colour your pictures using a painting program on the computer or to print off your sheets as paper colouring sheets.


Option 5 - Create your own optical illusion artwork using coloured pencils and shading to make your 2D paper appear to have a 3D effect. There is a video link below which guides you through this really well.
