We have added some activities here for you to look at and try if you would like.

If you cant print things off then just keep your own food diary on paper.

Have fun, miss you all. Mrs Hunter and Mrs Rickerby

Could you make a poster or information sheet about invertebrate and vertebrate animals?

Hello Year 3 from Mrs Rickerby.

I hope you are all well smiley

White Rose (Cumwhinton School's Maths scheme of work) has produced some home learning lessons which has a video for parents and children and then an activity. Here is the link if you would like to use it. Year 3 are looking at fractions which we started last week. 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

 

I have also set some 2do activities on Purple Mash for you to have a go at. If you press the hand in button once you have completed the task you can leave me a message and I can reply to you smiley

 

Remember to log onto TT Rockstars and work on your fantastic handwriting on Letter Join if you can access it. 

 

I look forward to seeing your wonderful work.

Mrs Rickerby  xx

Good morning year 3.

Hope you all had a good weekend. I managed to do some gardening and speak to my family on Facebook.

 

You can keep checking this page and I will add activities to keep you busy. Take a look at the pictures below to remind you of our lovely classroom and your fantastic class mates.

 

Make a start on the activities that you took home last week. If you are really stuck then send me a message on the year 3 email that school has set up. The address is year3@cumwhinton.cumbria.sch.uk.

 

Can you keep a diary of what you do over the next few weeks either online or on paper? You could also include some pictures too.

Mrs Rickerby has set you some challenges on Purple Mash. You all took your logins home last week for this.

 

Now that we have finished Charlottes Web the next book we will be reading is Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Ask your adults if they can get you a copy to read if possible, but dont worry we will all read it together when we get back.

 

Bye for now

Mrs Hunter and Mrs Rickerby

Happy New Year

 

Welcome back everyone ready for a new and exciting term. Many thanks for all the lovely gifts, messages and Christmas cards you sent.

Just a few reminders for this term. Please see our class page on the website for our knowledge organisers and information about our topic.  Our topic this term is Egyptians. We will be attending an Egyptian day at Tullie House on Friday 31st January, a letter will follow shortly.

Children will need a warm, outdoor PE kit for cricket and an indoor kit for gymnastics. Please ensure this is ALL clearly labelled with your child’s name. Details of the school PE kit can be found on the school website.

Please encourage your child to read each night and fill out the pages in their log books. These need to be returned to school EVERY day. Spellings will be sent home each Monday for a test the following week and maths homework will be sent home on a Friday to be returned the following Thursday. Talk homework will be sent home when we are planning our exciting writing.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Rickerby and Mrs Hunter
