Monday 26th March is the start of Maths Week! We have lots of fun 'maths in the real world' activities planned for the children! It would be brilliant if the children could spend at least 5 minutes a day on Times table Rockstars this week. Thank you.
Also we will NOT be sending any spellings out this week, but would appreciate it if the children could return their healthy living leaflets in before Wednesday.
Friday 23rd March
Year 3 have had a super sports relief day. We have had a fantastic PE lesson playing line ball, run miles in the Golden Mile and had the best danceathon with an international DJ dance master. Some children thought it might have been Mr Thoburn dressed up, but we assure you it wasn't. We also had the staff step challenge, apparently Mr McDonald beat Mrs Dalkin, but we are waiting for the independent verifier to check Mr McDonald's step counter.
Well done Year 3 - a super sporting day.
We can't wait for maths week! From Monday 26th - Wednesday 28th March we will be learning all about Maths in the real world.
Please can you make sure your child has a coat on Monday as we will be doing some maths outside.
Also Year 3 will be playing some maths games on Wednesday afternoon. If you have any games involving maths at home, your child is welcome to bring them in on Wednesday. I shall be bringing monopoly - warning... Mr McDonald and Mrs Dalkin can get very competitive! 🥇🥇🥇🥇
Today we celebrated World Down's syndrome day at Westerhope! Year 3 had the most fabulous selection of odd socks. We were thinking about how everyone is different. Well done Year3!
Bling your bike for Easter!
Year 3's bikes were fantastic! We loved the assembly parade.
Here are the spellings for this week, the children will be tested on Friday 23rd March.
Friday 16th March
We had a brilliant time this afternoon making videos to advertise a country to visit. We have learnt so much about different countries around the world in our Geography lessons, we thought it would be an excellent idea to show off our knowledge by making a video. We had to research a country, rehearse a script, find suitable images and download them and then use iMovie to put it all together! Year 3 are technological wizards! Some children even added a soundtrack to their movies. Unfortunately, there are no photographs of the children doing this, as they wouldn't let Mrs Dalkin or Mr McDonald near the ipads! We will upload some of the finished movies soon. Well done Year 3!
Times table Rockstars hits Westerhope!
All of Year 3 now have times table rockstars logins in the front of their reading record. It is an amazing online resource that will really help the children become more fluent with their tables. It can be played on a PC, tablet and smartphones. Just google times tables rock stars and you are good to go!
Thursday 15th March
We have been busying writing our own myths this week. We had some amazing heroes in our writing and some wicked villains! Today we decided to share our work with each other. We were looking for evidence of super writing as well as giving advice on what we could do better.
Spellings for week beginning Monday 12th March, to be tested on Friday 16th March:
Westerhope's world book day!
What a fabulous start to our day! Lots of the children dressed up as their favourite book character and looked fantastic.
We had a super international storyteller come to our assembly to tell us part of the story of Wind in the Willows. There were also some Bafta award winning actors to help tell the tale.
Friday 2nd March
ANOTHER SNOW DAY! We hope you are thoroughly enjoying yourselves, here are some more ideas for if you get bored...
1) Make a snow angel.
2) Make a snow monster, maybe the same creature you designed for your myth.
3) Make a miniature igloo, you can make bricks by packing snow into a tupperware box.
And if you are still bored, then practice your times tables!
Thursday 1st March
Another SNOW DAY! We hope you are having a brilliant time. We'd love to see photographs or pictures of the snowmen you might have built, or a photo of you sledging. However, if you do get bored, here are a few ideas you could do to keep busy:
But above all, enjoy the snow. Keep safe and we will see you soon. Don't forget to bring a change of footwear and an extra pair of socks or tights, there is nothing worse than cold, wet feet!
Here are the spellings to learn for this week, the children will be tested on Friday 2nd March.
We are really looking forward to our World Book Day on Wednesday 28th February. We have got a lovely new book that we will study for the day. Here is a clue: the title has the number 13 in it.
Don't forget to bring a snuggly blanket and/or a cuddly toy and a favourite book to read. We are also going to be reading to Nursery. It should be a super day.
Spellings for this week are:
We hope you have all had a super half term week. The children have arrived back at school raring to go.
Our topic is still 'All around the World'. We have started a unit in English all about Myths. Ask the children if they can tell you the story of 'Theseus and the Minotaur' we read it today in our English lessons. In Maths, we are learning about money, it would be great to give the children as many opportunities to count real money and work out the change. In Science, we are looking at forces and magnets, if you have any games at home that use magnets, we would love to have a look at them and investigate how they work.
We sent the new homework project via parentmail today, no 3D models this time...
Don't forget to come to our meeting about Year 3s CAMP OUT this Thursday (22/2/18) at either 3:30pm or 5:00pm in class 8. See you there!
