Disley Snake

 

This week’s challenge is to design a rock to add to the new Disley Primary School snake! Reception started this last week and our aim is to create a colourful snake that is as long as possible which will be displayed somewhere around the school.  

 

The rock should be painted with your unique design. It could be about you, be a tribute to one or all of the key workers or just be a nice colourful design. If possible then cover your painted design (when it is dry) with PVA glue or something to seal the paint so that it doesn't wash away with the rain.

 

Please ensure you put your first name and surname initial on the front of the rock. Please drop them into the blue collection tray near the main entrance car park gates (please follow school opening hours as the car park gates are locked when school is closed). We look forward to seeing them all!

A message from the Year 3/4 teachers

Still image for this video

We are aware that the Year 3 maths for this week is similar to the Year 3 maths from week 4. Based on the work we had done previously in class and the Mathletics that the children had done we decided that another week on fractions would be beneficial.

 

If you would like your child to move on to some alternative work please see the files below on measures.

National Sport Week 20th-26th June 2020

 

Dear Parent,

 

How do you fancy challenging friends, family or neighbours to some fun, virtual sporting activities this summer?

At national children’s charity, the Youth Sport Trust, we are determined to ensure that young people stay active and connected through this difficult time. We’ve been helping families do this with our daily #StayHomeStayActive activities since March and now we’re challenging the public to go one step further by joining us in our first ever National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports.

 

Taking place from 20-26 June, the week will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the opportunity to take part in a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they may be missing out on and the Youth Sport Trust is delighted that Sky Sports will be helping to supercharge the campaign.

 

How do I find out more?

Registering couldn’t be simpler. Just go to our website www.youthsporttrust.org/nssw and click on the link for parents. You will be asked a couple of questions as you register about who you might challenge and how many people you would like to get involved.

 

After signing up we will provide you with free and easy-to-use resources to help plan your week of National School Sport Week at Home Activity, set challenges for your families, friends and neighbours, and shout about it online.

So, what are you waiting for? Join the growing number of people who will be running, jumping and throwing their way to glory from 20-26 June.

Please send in your entries to @SSPmacc on Twitter or Rosie Harris (our School Games Organiser) by email at rharris@wilmslowhigh.cheshire.sch.uk - it would be great to see some of our pupils taking part!

 

Remember there is a chance for your clip to be selected in a video - plus there are prizes too!

Listen to the extract and pause on each page- please find the questions under this week's home learning.

Mrs Harrison’s STEM challenge - this is a really tricky one! If you manage to complete it, send me a video to show me!

We are aware that the Year 3 maths for this week is similar to the Year 3 maths from week 3, particularly question 1 on lesson 1 which is the same. Based on the work we had done previously in class and the Mathletics that the children had done we decided that another week on fractions would be beneficial.

Important message

 

Hello to all of our fantastic Year 3 and 4 children! We hope that you are all staying at home and staying safe.

 

We thought that it would be nice to hear what you have been up to and hear about some of the wonderful things that you have been doing. From Monday we thought that it would be nice for you to send us a picture or write to tell us about your home learning. It could be some work that you have done or a little message just to let us know how you are doing. We have heard about what some of you have been doing, including:  brilliant writing, completing reading challenges, becoming a Times Table rockstar, working out with Joe Wicks, getting creative and leaning lots of new things! Our highlight has to be the toilet roll challenge that lots of you took part in, it brought a smile to our faces and reminded us how amazing you all are! 

Once you have decided what you want to tell us about or show us we would like you to email us from an adults email address (with their permission of course). We will then email you back with a message about your work or whatever you wanted to show us or tell us about. 

All of us are missing you and want to hear what you have been up to. It would be lovely to receive one message from you each week. You will then have time to think about what you want to show for the following week. 

Your new work for next week is below this post. We are all looking forward to seeing and hearing about the amazing things that you have been up to! 

Love from the Year 3/4 teachers

You can record each activity on the sheet provided and try to beat your score each time you do it. You only need to complete each activity once per week, but you could do it 2 or 3 times if you want to. Have fun!

Welcome back Year 3 and 4.  We hope you had a lovely 2 week break and have eaten all of your chocolate!  It has been very strange not being in school and we are missing you all!  We loved the toilet roll challenge some of you got involved in and we hope you liked our little film!

Hopefully these should be better!! So sorry for any confusion!

We have found the missing pages, Year 3!  Thanks for being so patient and for those parents who e-mailed in! 

LS Lowry Crowther Street painting and senses grid

For the English description on "Crowther Street", remember the following:

  • Good fronted adverbials - e.g. In the distance........., Behind the boy........, Waiting for school...... and remember to add a comma afterwards!
  • Use of good conjuctions - although, despite, even though, however, but, because
  • Use your senses. 
  • Write in the 3rd person - e..g Although there was smoke coming from the factory, there was an overwhelming smell of bread from one of the houses.
  • Remember your punctuation
  • Joined up writing
We are currently trying to sort out the Year 3 comprehension.  There appear to be some pages missing!

Don't forget to have some "you" time! Do some baking, watch "Newsround", do some puzzles or colouring and watch out for some PE tips and ideas from Mr Robinson!

Coronavirus - Home Learning Update

 

We have spoken to the children today about the importance of home learning over the coming weeks. We have provided them with home learning books for them to complete all the tasks provided. No printing is required although if you are able to provide this, it may be useful for some tasks.

 

Each week (Monday morning), we will upload a weekly overview of tasks for your child to work through. In addition to this, there are home learning tasks which they can work through too.

 

We really do appreciate your support through this difficult period.

 

Many thanks,

 

The 3/4 Team

Home Learning Tasks - Week 1 (23.03.20)

Welcome to Year 3/4

We have three classes in Year 3/4 taught by

Mr Robinson, Miss Barton / Mrs Jardine and

Mrs Harrison/Mr Helliwell 

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.  Many thanks also for all the lovely cards and gifts that you sent in, they are greatly appreciated.

 

Teaching and Learning:

Our topic for the term will be ‘Why is Stockport such a cool place to live?”’ and this will have a geography focus. As you will see from our Knowledge Mat, there are a number of key facts that the children should know by the end of our topic.  Please work with your child to discuss any of the learning points.  We aim for the children to be as creative as possible whilst focussing on factual understanding, so if you have any resources or experience that you could share in order to enhance the topic, we would be very grateful.

 

Planner:

Please ensure all reading is logged in your child’s contact book.  Contact books will be checked by a member of staff twice per week. If there is an urgent message for a particular day we ask that the children show it to a member of staff first thing that day.  

 

Homework:

The school homework policy states that in Year 3&4 the children should be reading nightly and aloud to an adult once a week.  It is essential that children have their current reading book in school every day. The Year 3/4 recommended book list has been stuck in your child’s book, please encourage your child to read as many good quality texts from this list.

 

Children will usually be set three homework tasks each week. This will usually consist of spellings, Mathletics and Timestable Rockstars. Your child will receive a log in for Mathletics (this is the same as previous years), the log in will also work for Timestable Rockstars.

 

The children will be given homework on a Friday and it will be collected in the following Friday, giving children maximum time to complete the homework. 

 

PE:

This term, PE days will be Tuesday and Friday.  Children need to make sure that they have their kit in school every day as occasionally their P.E sessions may change.  The kit consists of trainers (not pumps), socks, black jogging bottoms, blue tee shirt and black sweatshirt.  Earrings need to removed or covered with tape at home for all P.E lessons. Please ensure that your children’s PE kits are weather appropriate, as PE is taught outdoors as often as possible.  

 

In addition, Year 4 will continue to go swimming on Friday mornings which will replace their Friday PE slot in school.  Please ensure payment has been received on-line.

 

Water bottles:

Please ensure that your child brings their named water bottle into school daily.  Bottles should be taken home at the end of each day in order to be refreshed.

 

Speaking to the teacher:

Our primary aim is that your child is happy and enjoys coming to school ready to learn each day. If ever there is an issue and you need to talk to us, then we will usually be available at the end of the day, apart from Mondays as we will be attending staff meeting, or we can arrange a meeting at a mutually convenient time.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

 

Mr Robinson, Mrs Harrison, Mr Helliwell, Miss Barton and Mrs Jardine    

 

Spring Term

This term our topic will be:

Why is Stockport such a cool place to live?

 

 

During this topic we will learn about the geography and history of Stockport, key facts and what it is famous for.

Science

We will be learning about states of matter. We will be learning about solids, liquids and gases and their properties.

PE

Year 3 and 4  PE days this year are Tuesday and Friday.

 Tuesday sessions are OTIS sessions and Friday lessons will be taught by Mr Robinson.

It is incredibly important for you to have water bottles in school every day but especially on a PE day to ensure you stay fully hydrated!
