Good Morning 3C!
I hope you all had a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend! Once the terrible winds went, it was so nice to enjoy the lovely sunshine again. I hope you all got to get out and enjoy it? We decided to do something a bit different one of the mornings...we got up very early (4:30am) to see the sunrise as it was not something we have ever done before. It was absolutely beautiful although I was pretty tired later in the day!
Another 'first' was that we set up a family game of Bingo on Zoom that was a lot of fun and brought all the grandparents and grandchildren together on Sunday afternoon. Sadly I didn't win but we all had a good catch up. I wonder if you have done anything or could plan to do anything like that so that you make your family smile. I'd love to hear about it when we are all back together.
I hope you enjoyed last week's Science project and perhaps you had a look at the Joy of Movement project that was also on the Shared Drive. This week for our project, we need your help to create some lovely art work and write a letter for the new Year 2s. Read the instructions carefully to find out what you need to do and have fun!
In Maths this week we have carried on with Fractions. Again, as it is new learning, you will need to go through the Powerpoint very carefully. Try to work out the answers on the question slides and then go through it with an adult to check your understanding!
I hope you all have a lovely week; work hard and stay safe!
Lots of love
Mrs Cuthbertson 
 
Some important notes:
  • Remember to continue to read for pleasure and use Bug Club or First News online. 
  • Keep practising your times tables and learning  your spelling words from the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spelling list.
  • Most importantly stay safe!! 
 
Parents: Please try to read at home with your child at least 4 times a week. It really does make a massive difference to their progression in reading and other subjects!

Hello 3C!
I hope that you have all had a good week and enjoyed a little bit of sunshine whilst you are keeping safe and well with your families! Have you managed to get out for any walks or bike rides maybe? I've carried on with my yoga which is really helping me to stretch and be more flexible. I've given you the link to try some yoga for kids if you fancy trying something different for your exercise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMMRb10LtGM 
 
I've also been busy this week doing quite a lot more reading than I usually get to do and it has been lovely escaping into a good story. In case you've run out of real books to read, here is a link for Audible Free Books for Children https://stories.audible.com/discover that you could use chill out and listen to. Just check with an adult first so they can help you look in the right place for one that would suit you. Happy listening!!
 
This week you have the second Science project on plants. Remember to make your science come alive by looking out for what you've been learning about when you are out and about on your daily exercise. So you may want to try and spot some of the different seeds that one of the tasks is about. Good luck!
 
In Maths this week, we are looking at the first part of our new topic, Fractions. Again, look out for examples of fractions and how they are used in the environment around you. Once you start looking, you probably won't be able to stop seeing them! There's also a Guiness World Record Challenge linked to TT Rockstars that's worth having a go at - look at the details on the Googledrive.
 
Take care, have a good week and look after your families by being kind and helpful to each other. I look forward to seeing you all soon,
Lots of love
Mrs Cuthbertson

Good Morning 3C!
Yet another week has passed and I hope you are all keeping well? Did you enjoy VE day on Friday - perhaps you did something at home to celebrate it? All the neighbours in my road had an afternoon tea in their front gardens so they could celebrate and chat to each other from a safe distance! My husband also ran a marathon on Thursday around our road - we had people cheering him on from their gardens and windows. It was a lot of fun (although we do live at the top of a hill so it was a pretty steep run for him!!)
 
This week we have given you the first of two Science projects on plants. Watch the videos carefully and have a go at the activities. We hope you enjoy doing an experiment at home!
 
For Maths this week we are looking at Bar graphs and Pictograms. I'm sure once you've done the powerpoint and the activities you may want to collect your own data from your family using a questionnaire. It'll be interesting to see what you find out and how you represent it! Don't forget about using BBC Supermovers, TT Rockstars and Hit the Button for those times tables.
 
Take care, keep safe and look after your families. I'm missing you all so much and can't wait to see you soon and hear all your news!
Lots of love

Good Morning 3C!
Another week has flown by and I hope you are all keeping safe and well. 
 
This week for your new project, we have given you a story about Coronavirus to read and talk about with your family and a Time Capsule booklet to complete. We hope it will really give you a chance to reflect on how you are feeling with things at the minute and record these events.
 
For Maths this week we are focusing on multiplying and dividing by 3x, 4x and 8x. I know for some of you, this may be a challenge but really use this week to practice those tables that you are unsure of. You can use TT Rockstars and Hit the Button to help. Don't forget about BBC Supermovers too which will give you a chance to dance whilst saying your tables too!  We also have given you some board games to print off and play with your family to help you remember these facts!
 
In the meantime, when you're not learning, use your time well. I wonder if any of you have taken up any new hobbies or maybe learnt a new skill? I've started doing yoga and I've been doing quite a lot of baking for my family. The only problem is I can't keep up with their appetites!! I can't wait to hear about how you used your time!
 
Take care, keep safe and look after your families.
Lots of love

Hi 3C!
Hope you are all doing ok? I've missed you all so much since my foot operation and then lock-down! Can you believe you've had 6 weeks of Home Learning already? Hopefully, you've been keeping busy doing lots of fantastic research on our projects and going back over all our maths topics. Remember to keep reading a little bit each day and try to keep those maths skills sharp on TT Rock Stars (we've got to try and beat 3W!!)
I also hope that you've been enjoying some fresh air and sunshine! I've started going for short walks now as my foot is getting so much better. I've also been trying to learn the ukulele- although my children have got much better at it than me!
Take care of yourselves, look after your families by being as kind and caring as you can and hopefully we'll meet up again very soon!
Lots of love,
Mrs Cuthbertson xx
