Hi! I am Miss Skillen and this is my first year teaching at Woodlands School. I am particularly passionate about Science and I enjoy teaching lessons through drama. I also love teaching Art and DT because I like painting, sketching and making models. When I am not in school, I enjoy watching musicals and going to exercise classes. My favourite musical is ‘The Greatest Showman’.

Welcome to Y3!

Autumn Term 1


A warm welcome back to the children in Year 3. We are really looking forward to an exciting half term ahead. The Year 3 team are excited to continue our learning journey and hope you had a fantastic summer holiday.

In Literacy this half term we will be using a beautiful book called ' Seal Surfer', by Michael Foreman, as a starting point for our topic work. The book is visually stunning and the story takes the reader on a beautiful journey of friendship across generations, species and abilities. A boy and his grandfather watch as a baby seal is born on the rocks near their home, and from that day a special friendship is forged between them.
