TT Rockstars - BATTLE

Well done Year 3/4 - you still have a strong lead.  There are now just over 24 hours until the battle ends.  Keep up the fantastic times tables work! 



As always, try to find some time today to keep active.  Joe Wicks’ daily live P.E. session can be accessed here:  


Maybe you are looking for something different to try.  You will find some ideas for physical challenges on our school Twitter page:  



Remember to set aside some time for independent reading.  If you are looking for some ideas for your next read, try looking through the recommended reads for Year 3 and Year 4, (see our ‘Useful Links’ section) have a look at the latest edition of First News (use the link under the ‘Children’ tab on the homepage) or try reading one of the Accelerated Reader articles which you can then complete a quiz on (see parents’ guide below).

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).



If you haven’t already done so, please log on to Spelling Shed and try to complete this week’s game 5 times.  Remember you can increase (or decrease) the difficulty if necessary. 


If you have completed this assignment and you are looking for something else, why not try one or two of the activities from the ‘Challenge Weeks’ pack.  You can use this week’s spellings or choose some of the tricky words from the Year 3/4 additional word list. 


Today I would like you to finish writing your own story along the same lines as Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox.  If you can, please share your story with us via our class email.  You could take a photograph of your illustrated story if you wrote it by hand, email it to us as a Word document, or even ask someone to video you reading your story aloud!


Have a go at one of these Maths lessons on the BBC Bitesize website using the links below: 


Y3 = Multiplication and division problem solving 


Y4 = Finding area by counting squares 

Art Competition

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.  The closing date is tomorrow.  A 2Do has been set on Purple Mash to enable you to create a masterpiece on your computer or tablet if you prefer.  Thank you to those children who have submitted entries already. smiley
