Wow! What a way to end Year 3. We had a fantastic end of year Zoom party on Thursday afternoon and Miss Yates and I loved seeing all your smiley faces. It was a real treat. The hats and decorations you made were fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed looking at your artwork and hearing all your lovely memories. Also, what a difficult game of musical statues. You were all so good (parents as well)!

We have had another busy week in Year 1.

This week, our writing has been 'out of this world'. We have focused on Aliens.

There was an alien sighting on Monday and you might recognise where this photo was captured. Year 1 created a list of questions they would ask this cheeky visitor. 

 

We also enjoyed reading Aliens Love Underpants by Clare Freedman and Ben Cort. The children have worked on developing their vocabularly and selecting words to decribe aliens. They have also created their own alien character. 

In maths, we have been working on counting numbers to 40 and place value of 2 digit numbers.

Have a look at Brooke's Powerpoint in 'Files to Download' with lots of photos from her 'I Spy Vicar's Cross Adventure'!

Freya has been creating mindmaps for the characters in 'Taking Flight' and using them to create some super descriptive sentences.

Can you guess David's kenning? If you look closely, there is a clue in the picture! (Photo 4)

How about Brooke's kenning - her favourite animal? The answers are at the bottom of this page! (Photo 5)

Now have a look at Aidan's kenning (Photo 6) and Sophie has had a go at writing three different kennings (Photo 7). We are loving guessing what they are!

Niamh has sent in a photo of her kenning (Photo 8), her work on the digestive system, a delicious looking cake and a picture of her dog, Max, enjoying the sand when she went to the beach. Niamh also has a family of frogs living in her garden and she has to make sure they have enough water when it's scorching hot!

Luke has sent a photo of his kenning (Photo 13) and he has also loved doing the science red cabbage experiment!

Lili has worked very hard on her science experiment and has made you a PowerPoint to show and explain her results. (See files to download)

Brooke has managed to get a super range of colours and acidity with her science experiment!

Niamh had fun with the red cabbage science experiment too!

Felix created the robot 'Nature Nick', which he created as part of the ‘helpful inventions’. He has also sent in a final picture of his Acid-Base indicator test.  What did you all think of the cabbage smell after it had been blended?

Can you guess Inca and Jacob's kennings? (Photos 20 and 21)

How about Michael's kenning - an animal with no limbs? He has also sent some photos of his science experiment from this week - Michael's got a really good range of colours too!

This week, Alice has designed a car for Blue Peter, and made a bird feeder towards her green badge. She also really enjoyed the cabbage science experiment and videos! 

Evie has created mindmaps for the characters from 'Taking Flight', added synonyms and then written some lovely descriptive sentences. She has also sent in her kenning and drawn her chosen animal using an online tutorial!

Year 3's home learning! Week 8 (beginning 1st June), by Mrs Harrison

Date: 6th Jun 2020 @ 5:11pm

What crazy weather we've had this week!

Here are some photographs of the Year 3 Superstars hard at work. Please continue to email us with your brilliant home learning. We love to celebrate and share your achievements.

 

This week...

Harry L has used his incredible typing skills to write his diary from the perspective of his lego figure, Zac. We're so glad he has used the Year 3 class recipe book to try some extra baking at home and it looks like Zac enjoyed his art class.

 

 

Erin has written a fantastic letter using her brilliant typing skills. It sounds like Pug the cushion, Erin and Zarlah all had a fun filled day and It's lovely to hear that reading the David Walliams book made them both feel relaxed.

 

 

Maya chose to write in role as Lottie the Lemon this week and what a fabulous day it looks like she had! Maya also created a Harry Potter board game, experimented doing the chocolate rock cycle and 'travelled' to China. As you can see she dressed up for the occasion, surrounded herself with pandas, a Chinese dragon and animals from each of the Chinese Years. She even cooked a Chinese stir-fry and noodles for dinner followed by a traditional tea ceremony. What an incredible 'trip' to China she had!

     

  

 

 

Sam has used his fantastic typing skills this week and wrote a diary entry in the role of Duckbill-Docus. It sounds like he had a tough day but I do love the use of emojis to emphasis the emotions he went through! He has also been working hard on his subtraction, using Code Studio and entering a Blue Peter competition. Super Star!

 

 

 

Jack W has typed up an amazing diary entry! He has clearly planned it thoroughly with lots of detail. Can you guess whose point of view Jack has written the diary from? He has also created a collage using a photograph of his face, challenged himself to complete the maths challenges and created a fantastic handimal of a monkey! Well done Jack.

 

    

 

As well this week, Alice has written a beautiful diary entry from her baby Totto, created a butterfly handprint, developed her French speaking skills, challenged herself in maths and completed the 30 Day Wild activities. It looks like she's had a fun-filled week!

  

          

 

 

Danny has used his artistic skills this week to create some flower sketches, bake some banana loaf and design Bubbly. Bubbly is the character in the photograph below and who Danny wrote his diary entry in the perspective of. Well done Danny.

   

 

 

Megan has chose to write her diary entry involving Paul the potato. She clearly put a lot of effort into typing up her diary entry. Well done. 

 

 

Oliver has been on lots of adventures recently and has written a fantastic diary entry written by Pikachu. A familiar character to a lot of Year 3! Oliver has used some brilliant description!

 

 

 

 

Alfie has been a superstar baker these past couple of weeks! He has been baking delicious cakes with his mum, going on some lovely walks in Christleton, Sandy Lane and on the River Dee meadows and setting geography challenges in his family quizzes. He has wrote a detailed diary entry as a tennis ball. It sounds like they both had a fabulous day at the beach! Well done Aflie. Superstar effort!

  

 

 

 

Nye chose to write his diary entry from the perspective of an orange named Ted! Both Nye and Ted recommend the set of books 'Kid Normal' by Greg James and Chris Smith. Have you read them before? Nye and his family have also been visiting the new 'Little Free Library' in Vicars Cross. Have you spotted it on your walks?

   

 

Before half term, Nye wrote a letter to his Nan as well as myself. I'm sure his Nan would have loved receiving her letter as much as I did. He achieved 10/10 in his spelling test; learnt how to make eggy bread during his Cubs Zoom; participated in a world record breaking drawing attempt; challenged himself completing his maths challenges; cycled and relaxed in the paddling pool and completed a challenge set by his Gramma by choosing his favourite old building in Chester based on its interesting features.
