27.6.17 Camping details 

We are all very excited about our Thursday night Camp Out. Please see below for further details…

 

  • Lunch for ALL Year 3 children will be provided by the kitchens on Friday which will be free of charge. There will be a ‘hot’ option or a sandwiches option. If your child does not want either of these, please let your class teacher know that you will be dropping a packed lunch off via the office on Friday morning.
  • We will be providing all food and drink from 8pm Thursday – 3:15pm Friday so children should not need to bring any food or drink with them
  • Children are allowed to bring ‘readybeds’ if they are already inflated
  • If there are adverse weather conditions, we will let you know should we need to cancel the camping but we are not envisaging this happening
  • Year 3 will be doing outdoor activities all day on Friday, therefore they should bring comfortable and warm clothing to wear. This could be the same outfit as they arrived in on the Thursday but as the weather might be wet on Thursday, a different/spare change of clothes for Friday is advisable.

 

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Thank you!

Our Survey about improving lunchtimes @ Westerhope

 

In Computing this half term, we have been given the task of finding out how to improve lunchtimes at Westerhope by Mr Outterside.

 

In order to collect information, we have created a survey for students of Westerhope to fill in.

 

We would really appreciate it, if you could spare a few minutes and answer the questions on our survey.

 

To access our survey click here.

 

Thank you

Missing Number Problems

 

Today we have been solving missing number problems in Maths. Can you use the 'part part whole' method to solve these? Try explain your method to an adult at home and see if they can check them.

 

9+___ = 20

32 - ___ = 15

__ - 24 = 17

___ + 32 = 41

__ - 17 = 12

39 + ___ = 50

45 - ___ = 24

 

Number bonds to 100 - Beat the Teacher!

It is very important to be able to quickly work out our number bonds to 10 and 100. We've practised this a lot this week. See how many points you can score and remember to do it again and again so that you are using new numbers each time. I've just done it and I scored 30/30! Have a go at beating that.... :D

They are practising very hard for a big performance away in Cumbria with several other schools and their music teacher Mr Strachan (Miss Strachan's uncle!). Dearham and Northside School came to visit us to practise today and Year 3 watched some of the songs at the end of the day. Wow!! 12 children from Class 7 are in the choir! We are very impressed and proud.

6.3.17 Class 7 were very enthusiastic to learn the names of some animals in French today! Can you practise them in your best French accent?

3.3.17 Why don't you try reading the poem that Year 1 performed to us? Try using lots of expression and actions.

 

Please Mrs Butler

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps copying my work, Miss.
What shall I do?

 

Go and sit in the hall, dear.
Go and sit in the sink.
Take your books on the roof, my lamb.
Do whatever you think.

 

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps taking my rubber, Miss.
What shall I do?

 

Keep it in your hand, dear.
Hide it up your vest.
Swallow it if you like, my love.
Do what you think is best.

 

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps calling me rude names, miss.
What shall I do?

 

Lock yourself in the cupboard, dear.
Run away to sea.
Do whatever you can, my flower.
But don’t ask me.

3.3.17 Year 1 came up to our class to perform their version of the poem 'Please Mrs Butler'. They were fantastic! We really enjoyed the performance. Well done Year 1!

3.3.17 Your World Book Day outfits were amazing!!

Remember you can dress up as a book character and bring your favourite book into school tomorrow! We will be having a fun-filled booktastic day! :)

 

1.3.17 Dramatic settings in myths

Today we have been looking at the dramatic settings of myths. We used thesauruses to uplevel our writing and find a range of adjectives to describe the pictures. Can you write a setting description about this image? You can use the thesaurus link to help you.

http://www.thesaurus.com/

 

 
   

28.2.17 Nouns, verbs, adjectives or adverbs?

Today we had a very interesting and lively discussion about the different types of words. In groups, Class 7 sorted a range of words and gave reasons to justify their decisions. We came to the conclusion that some words can be in more than one word group but it depends on how it is used in the sentence. Excellent work today Class 7!

 

Can you have a go at this word sorting game to blast the rocket?

Miss Strachan's holiday diary: Today I explored Beamish museum and learned about the incredible history of mining in the North East. It was amazing to see the working conditions of miners, including children as young as six! The mine was pitch black and freezing cold with water that dripped down the walls and onto the floor. In the olden days, miners had to travel deep underground to extract the coal from the rock using a mixture of hand tools and drills. It was an extremely hard job but thanks to them the people of the North East had coal for fires and transport. I particularly enjoyed my visit to the Beamish sweet shop where the walls were lined with glass jars filled to the brim with colourful sweets. I watched the shop owner weigh out my lemon sherbets onto an old fashioned set of weighing scales. The sweets were delicious! The children in the picture are striking for free school meals, something that we still have today. I also looked around an old school and sat at the teacher's desk. In the classrooms there were no whiteboards and most definitely no iPads or smart boards!! I had lots of fun trying to play an old fashioned game with the metal hoop and stick- it is a lot harder than it looks! Have a look at the similarities and differences between their classroom and ours. Which do you prefer? Can you research the history of mining in the North East? Why don't you write your own holiday diary and share it with us next Monday? :)

Alfie is clearly enjoying his half term holiday! Why don't you write about the Adventures of Alfie? I will read any stories that you write to him and see what he thinks of them

17.2.17 Happy Half Term everyone!!! frownfrownfrown

You have worked incredibly hard this half term and I am so proud of all of you. Have a wonderful week off and get some rest so you are ready to start again on Monday 27th! I will be updating the website a few times throughout the week (perhaps with photos of Alfie the Bunny on his holidays...!) so keep an eye out..

 

I have not set any holiday homework but it would be great if you could read lots and practise high frequency spellings and your times tables. Use the website for ideas about any other learning you could do when you have the time.

 

Most of all, have fun! frown

17.2.17 Thank you so much to everyone who was able to come in and read the children's brilliant traditional tales. It was lovely to have you in and Class 7 thoroughly enjoyed sharing their work with you :)

17.2.17 Class 7 had a wonderful time sharing their traditional tales with Year 1. It was lovely to see how proud they are of their work and Year 1 really enjoyed listening to their super stories. A great end to half term!

17.2.17 Today we practised turning a 'text' from Hansel and Gretel into a piece of writing with speech marks. Why don't you create your own traditional tale text conversation then have a go at writing it up with speech marks? :)  http://www.fakephonetext.com/
