TT Rockstars - BATTLE
We have a new battle against the Year 4 class this week. It begins at 9am today. Please log on to the website and answer the times tables questions as quickly and as accurately as you can. The battle ends at 3pm on Friday. You can log on whenever you would like to throughout the week, especially if you have a few minutes to spare here and there. Remember, it is a team effort.
You can do it Year 3/4!
Alternatively, you could start your day by joining Joe Wicks for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
If you would prefer to do something else to keep active, why not ask someone to set you a physical challenge either indoors or outdoors? You will find some ideas on our school Twitter page: https://twitter.com/SchoolScotby
We are going to continue using the BBC Bitesize website this week. Have a go at one of the Maths lessons using the links below:
Y3 = Multiplying and dividing by 8
Y4 = Multiplying and dividing problem solving
We will begin again by using the slideshow from the Spelling Shed website to introduce the spelling rules. Hopefully an adult can work through the slideshow with you and direct you with the tasks, using the lesson plan as a guide. Feel free to adapt the tasks as you wish.
This week we are going to use one of the home learning packs from the Hamilton Trust website. The focus text will be Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox. Don’t worry if you don’t have a copy of the text at home - extracts are provided to help you complete the tasks.
Try to set aside some time each week for independent reading. Remember, there are links to lists of recommended reads for Year 3 and Year 4 in our ‘Useful links’ section on this page and, if you are looking for something different to read, you will find a copy of the most recent edition of First News under the ‘Children’ tab on the homepage.
If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage. Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).
Due to the current school closures, the annual Wetheral Art competition has unfortunately had to be cancelled. However, we have decided to hold our own competition. If you haven't already done so, please have a look at the details below and send your entry to us before the end of the week. A 2Do has been set on Purple Mash to enable you to create a masterpiece on your computer or tablet if you prefer. Hopefully we will see your entries soon!
