Friday Afternoon Zoom Sessions

15.01.21

 

Hello all,

 

For this afternoons Year 3 and Year 4 Zoom sessions I have uploaded resources (below) should you want to print them out before your child's session. Please be aware I will be sharing the screen, so your child will be able to view our activities in this way as well.

 

Just a reminder that your child needs to be taking part in the session as independently as possible. 

 

Kind regards,

Mrs CR 

Spellings

 

Please remember to test your spellings each Friday and please practise using the spelling words in a sentence to make sure you understand their meaning.

 

For Example...

 

If the word is operation.

 

'We have to wait for a letter to arrive in the post, so we could book a date for the operation.'

 

Spelling sheets can be found on our Class Page. 

Optional Warm Up For Writing

 

If your child needs some support with getting warmed up before writing, you can try this learning activity to generate ideas and to kick-start their thinking process.

Snapshot of Learning so far...

Seesaw - Our New Learning Platform.

 

Thank you to those that have signed up and activated their Seesaw account. If you haven't - please do. We are excited to begin using this learning platform, where you will be able to view our pre recorded demos (explaining some of the learning process) from the class teacher, view resources and send in your child's learning to their journal. It is a more interactive way of learning and will aid your child and yourselves during this home learning period.

 

It may take you a while to get used to this platform, but rest assured it is easier once you've practised and get used to navigating it. 

 

I will of course let you know when we will be starting to fully use this platform.

 

Kind regards,

Mrs Clyde Roberts 

Challenge Spellings

 

It has come to my attention that only challenge 1 appears to have been sent out last week, so I have uploaded the spelling documents for each group. Happy practising! 

 

Kind regards,

Mrs CR 

Alice In Wonderland Book

 

Uploaded below is the Alice in Wonderland Book in PDF form. Please don't print it off as it's a large document, 120 pages long. I've added it so that if you would like to read a chapter at a time to your child, you can. It is also there to help with remembering what happens in a certain scene, should you need to check for writing and comprehension purposes.

 

Kind regards,

Mrs CR 

Alice In Wonderland Book PDF

Thursday 14th January 

English Learning

 

Firstly, I just want to make clear the aims of the 'creative writing task' that is set at the beginning of each week. Year 4 parents will be aware, as this was carried out during our previous lockdown, but Year 3 parents won't be as clear.

 

This creative piece of writing gives your child the opportunity to write an extended piece of writing each week. This ensures it keeps their writing skills fresh and that they also have the opportunity to practise their handwriting and grammar.

 

The text that appears above the picture is the beginning of a story and after discussions about their ideas your child should be able to continue writing that story. How independent they are depends on how confident they feel about the task, so you may need to encourage them throughout, or at stages. The aim is for them to eventually be as independent as possible. The creative write should be approx a page and a half for year 4 children and a page of writing for year 3 children. 

 

How to go about completing this writing task... 

 

In class we focus on writing a small section each day, which we edit and upgrade, ready for our final version. Of course, this may be a different process at home. There is nothing wrong with asking your child to write the story and then return to it a couple of days letter to ensure they upgrade what they have written. Or, complete a small section and upgrade each day.

It's what works best for you and your child/children.

 

The learning task for today is to look back at the creative write that was set at the beginning of the week and continue writing and editing this piece of writing.

 

Editing will be focussing on alternative (better) words that can replace current/existing vocabulary.

 

For example...

 

Version 1: 'Alice fell down the rabbit hole and as she moved down the tunnel, she felt faint and couldn't catch her breath.'

 

Upgraded version: 'Alice tumbled down the rabbit hole and as she fell swiftly towards the dark, narrowing tunnel, she suddenly felt breathless.' 

 

Editing is also checking for good use of grammar, throughout. Ensuring the sentences are clear and make sense to the reader and that handwriting is clear, with letters formed and joined correctly. 

 

If the children read their story out loud to either themselves or another adult, this helps with being to able to spot errors and correct them. They can then use the editing grid to help them to understand what to look out for, as we would in a class situation. 

 

I have uploaded an editing grid, as well as a reminder of the original task below.

 

Best Wishes,

Mrs Clyde Roberts 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 14th January

Year 3 Maths 

 

Today, the learning task is for the children to design a poster that shows right angles in different shapes, but also in different objects. The children can choose whether they use the poster templates provided (on the computer) or they can create their poster with their own resources and colouring pens.

 

This activity will help the children focus on remembering right angles, as they have been learning about right angles that can be found, in a range of different shapes, recently. 

 

Please ensure that you clearly show where you have used a right angle and make this really clear by using a ruler and/or a protractor. Make your poster exciting, something you can use to look back on, to remember right angles.

 

Looking forward to viewing your learning! 

Mrs Clyde Roberts 

 

 

Thursday 14th January

Year 4 Maths 

 

Today, the learning task is for the children to design a poster that shows a range of different angles. You can show these angles by drawing them in 2d shapes, or by themselves.

 

 The children can choose whether they use the poster templates provided (on the computer) or they can create their poster with their own resources and colouring pens.

 

This activity will help the children focus on remembering the different angles, as they have been learning about ordering angles in descending and ascending order. 

 

Please ensure that you clearly show where you have used a right angle and make this really clear by using a ruler and/or a protractor. Make your poster exciting, something you can use to look back on, to remember the different types of angles. 

 

Looking forward to viewing your learning! 

Mrs Clyde Roberts 

Extra Challenge

Thursday 14th January

Afternoon learning:

 

Children are to view the step by step tutorial of how to draw Alice. Using their sketching skills and the paper provided (you click on the link to print it off) the children can sketch and then either paint or colour their finished version.

 

Remember sketching is a slow process and the sketch does not need to be perfect, as it is a rough shape and outline.

 

Looking forward to seeing your different versions of Alice! 

 

Wednesday 13th January

English Learning

 

For this learning task you will need to answer the questions on the cards, with the information you know so far about Alice In Wonderland. You may have to conduct some research if you are unsure of some of the answers.

Cut out the cards with the questions on and answer them underneath. You can choose a creative way to present your learning, to make sure it looks visually exciting!

 

Challenge: Create a riddle about one of the main characters in Alice In Wonderland. Ask your older brother/sister or parents to try and work it who the character may be. 

 

For example for the 'White Rabbit' you may write...

'Late and always in a rush, he wanders around like a big ball of fluff'

 

The password for the answers is 'ReadersProtect'

Afternoon PE Session

Mathletics

Good Morning,

 

I have had one or two emails asking about Mathletics tasks that have been set. When you click on 'Multiplication and Division' on your child's homepage it will show the tasks that have been set, in gold.

Because the layout of Mathletics is different to the old version, I think the children were expecting the learning activities to appear at the top of the page, when they sign in, which isn't the case anymore.

 

Kind regards,

Mrs CR 

Afternoon Zoom Sessions.

11.01.21

 

I really enjoyed the afternoon Zoom sessions today. It was lovely to see you all! For those of you that were unable to attend, I will see you 'virtually' on Friday.

During Monday's session we will discuss English learning and carry out an activity and in Friday's session we will discuss Maths learning.

 

I know talking to a screen isn't quite the same as being in a classroom but you will get used to it. Please make sure when you are answering questions your voice is loud and clear. When you come into the Zoom meeting we won't mute straight away but when we need to answer questions I may ask you to mute, so we can hear everyone clearly, at all times.

 

Kind regards,

Mrs CR

Due to the a high number of users accessing Mathletics, it does appear to be playing up this morning. Hopefully it will be up and running this afternoon! 

Monday 11th January

 

I have set Mathletics tasks (Multiplication and Division) for the week. If your child needs their username and password, they are in the front of their reading records. If you cannot track this down, please email me and I can send over their usernames and passwords. 

 

Kind regards,

Mrs Clyde Roberts 

Monday 11th January

English Learning

 

For your English learning you are to have a look at the character description activity and think about what the words suggest, about Alice and the type of character she is. 

 

Then once you have looked up these words and/or discussed them with your adult then you can start to fill in the character description sheet. Ensure you use full sentences and show evidence for your answers.

 

Finally, once you have filled in this character description sheet you can write a more detailed character description, which includes more adjectives and examples of how Alice may act. Think about the scene where she falls down the rabbit hole and how she behaves during that scene. 

 

During our Zoom meeting (tomorrow afternoon) we can share and discuss how you have got on with your character descriptions. 

 

Looking forward to 'virtually' seeing you all!

At the beginning of the week I set you a piece of writing based on Alice In Wonderland, falling down the rabbit hole. Many of you have been working on this throughout the week and have been editing as you go along.

 

If you have been editing and redrafting throughout the week, you can write up your final version tomorrow.

If you haven't edited and need to, since writing your first version, you can edit and upgrade tomorrow.

 

Use the 'Editing Your Writing' grid, to upgrade your learning. Think carefully about descriptive vocabulary and where you can use short sentences for effect.

Afternoon Session - Physical Education

Thursday 7th of January

 

Hello! 

Hope your home learning week has started well. You would have noticed that your spelling lists were sent through earlier today and so the children can start practising their new spelling words. 

The learning activities are uploaded, ready for tomorrow. As well as writing tasks that are linked to topic, I will set upgrading/editing tasks from time to time, to allow the children to practise these skills.

There are three different levels (One star, Two star and Three star). I would encourage Year threes to complete the two star sheets, and the Year fours, the three stars. The one star is there in case any of the children need a step back, to check understanding.

I have also uploaded some handwriting tasks, so the children can continue to practise their letter joins. 

The intro sessions for Maths are there to warm the children up, before they then continue their learning in their Geometry booklets. 

 

Any questions, please email the school office and I will try and get back to you as soon as is possible. 

 

Kind regards,

Mrs Clyde Roberts

Hello Class 3

Well here we are at the end of the school year and what a year it has been!  I would like to say how marvellous I think you all have been.  You adapted to a strange way of working quickly and efficiently. Mums, dads and carers you have done a super job, I know it must have been difficult at times but hopefully you have enjoyed some of it. A lot of new skills have been learnt by us all.

 

I would like to wish all of you a very healthy, safe summer and I look forward to seeing you all again in September.

 

Warm wishes.

Hello Class 3

Another week has flown by.  It was lovely to see Year 4s in school this week and wow have you all grown, getting ready to be Year 5s.  I know Mrs. CR was very impressed with how you all settled back to school life, albeit in a different environment.

Year 3, from what I can see you are all working hard at home, loving the belt designs, marvellous maths and sport's day work.

We are nearly at the end of term and I hope that all of you will enjoy some of the sunshine we are promised for next week.

Best regards.

Mrs. Platt

Saturday 4th July 2020

 

Hello Class 3

 

Hope you have had a good week.  Unfortunately, the weather wasn't so good this week, in fact what a storm we had Thursday. I was out on a walk and got absolutely soaked, the thunder and lightning was amazing though.

Looks like you have all been busy, I am so impressed with the scaled drawings, we really do have some wonderful artists in our class.  Lots of marvellous maths going on with a range of subjects, time, angles, times tables, parallel and perpendicular amongst them.  The habitat projects are very impressive too, love all the facts and use of Powerpoint.

Year 3, keep going with the wonderful work you are doing at home. Year 4, I look forward to seeing you in school next week.

Best wishes.

Mrs. Platt

Good afternoon Class 3

 

I hope you have been out and about enjoying the wonderful sunshine as well as working hard. 

As you can see, Mrs CR has been sent lots of wonderful photos showing some amazing work. I am especially impressed with the creative writing going on, paragraphs, fronted adverbials, inverted commas and good adjectives are all being used.

Once again, you have been baking and every week when I upload the photos and see all the lovely things being baked I get quite hungry.

I do appreciate that I have two other photos to upload which will be done shortly. Thank you for the Squishy Egg report, perhaps others would like to give it a go.

Today would have been our Sports Day, so if you feel inclined, why don't you get some hard boiled eggs and some spoons and have a family egg and spoon race or my favourite, a four legged race. Would love to see photos of them.

Have a good week.

Best Regards.

Mrs. Platt

 

 

Home Learning Week Beginning 22.06.20

Friday 19th June 2020

 

Good afternoon Class 3

Hope you are all well and have been enjoying the lovely weather.

Once again, I am so impressed with your work. Great research on the Asian animals, lovely art with the William Morris designs, marvellous maths (good alliteration) and what can I say about the baking. Think I will be asking for a lot of recipes when we all get back to school. Your creative writing is really showing improvement, just remember those capital letters for proper nouns. Oh, there I go again, Picky Platt!!!  Would love to hear more about the egg experiment, perhaps a little report.

Please give yourselves and your families a big pat on the back for doing a great job. Keep it up.

Best Wishes.

Mrs. Platt
