Good morning super team!

I hope you all had a great day yesterday and had some lovely activities to do for Mrs Kendall and Miss Watkins. They are both really looking forwards to you joining them next year.

Before we begin today, here are some very exciting photos you've sent this week;

     

Chloe has been having a very exciting time; here she is with her brand new beautiful foal, Arthur!

     

Here's Mia with Coco, her gorgeous new bunny!

    

Here's Grace with her brand new friend! Spot the bird on Grace's head!!

Thank you so much everyone for all your hard work this week. I posted all your lovely letters on the Year 2 blog yesterday and they loved reading them. Thank you for all your brilliant dictionary challenges too!

        

Here's Archie, Emma and Oscar working hard on their dictionary challenges!

       

Here's Charlie's super dictionary challenge too and also Arianna's French! Well done everyone!

Here are your activities for today....

Maths:

8 questions:

  1. 654 - 232
  2. Subtract 65 from 293
  3. 768 plus 124
  4. 6 x 8
  5. 48 divided by 8
  6. 1/4 of 36
  7. 65 x 100
  8. 760 divided by 10

Problem;

Grandma bought a very tasty chocolate cake and cut it into tenths. She gave 1 piece to Tom, 2 pieces to Harry and 3 pieces to Dad! What fraction of the cake would be left?

Activity;

Today I'd like you to practise multiplication. I have set some multiplication activities on 'Mathletics' for you. Remember, if you are given a simple multiplication that is within the timestables you won't need to use columns. However, if the numbers are larger you will. Here is an example...

2

 6 5

 x 4

260       

Can you remember that you will first need to solve 4 x 5 (20)...... put the 0 in the box and carry the 2 into the tens column.

Then, solve 4 x 6 (24) and remember to add the extra 2 tens.

Literacy/History:

Read about the history of Holmfirth, West yorkshire     

Last week you worked so hard to create your non-fiction posters about Castle Hill. Today I'd really like you to find out some interesting historical facts about Netherthong or Holmfirth (our local area). You might include something about the floods, the workhouse in Netherthong, the mills, the Luddites or any other exciting historical facts about our area. You could look for old photographs on the internet and print some out to create interest to your poster. I'd like you to do as you did last time and add captions of information. Let's see who finds out the most about our history!

Art:

Your art challenge this week is to create a model of Castle Hill! You can use whatever you like! You might want to use some of the skills you learnt when we made our volcanoes! It is entirely up to you. This activity is likely to take you into next week as you'll need to paint it and add detail. Please send a photo of your finished model!

Reading:

Spend some time sharing a book with Mum or Dad and remember to read with exciting expression!

Have a great day and remember it's Sports Day tomorrow so pray for lots of sunshine!!

Bye for now!

Transition Tuesday 7th July 2020

admin on: Class 3

Good morning, Mrs Kendal here again for Transition Tuesday!

This will be the last blog I write for you before you become official Class 4 members. I hope you are as excited as me!

Remember if you (or your adult) have any questions to ask about moving up to year 4, please email us at class4@netherthongprimary.co.uk and we will do our best to answer them for you.

Here are today’s suggested activities:

As this is the last blog I will write for you, I thought we could have a bit of fun and do some silly activities.

English:

I asked my class to do this task last week and I thought you could have a go too.

Can you make a silly speech?

Below is a list of topics that I am sure you don’t agree with. Pretend that you do and give lots of reasons why you agree with them. Try and speak for at least one minute on each topic.

When you have delivered your speeches, pick one or two topics and write a list of all of the reasons you gave (or film one if you prefer). Don’t forget, be persuasive! Try and make people really believe what you are saying.

  • Reasons why I love homework.
  • Reasons why I love having holes in my socks.
  • Reasons why I love smelly feet.
  • Reasons why I love my mobile phone/ tablet running out of battery.
  • Reasons why I love eating raw onions.
  • Reasons why I love rainy days.
  • Reasons why I love everyone forgetting my birthday.
  • Reasons why I love people with loud voices.
  • Reasons why I love getting the same present twice on my birthday.
  • Reasons why I love sitting in front of people who talk and kick my seat in the cinema.

Maths:

Have a go at solving these problems. If you have a set of dominoes, use them when working out your answers. If not, you could always cut out the ones below.

The number of spots along each side of the square should add up to the number in the middle.

 

  

Art:

Can you create a piece of art using an everyday object?

Here are some examples:

    

This one is mine!

                                                         

I’m looking forward to seeing your creations.

Have a lovely day.

Love from Mrs Kendal and the year 4 team xx

Good morning fabulous year 3!

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend and had lots of fun.

Here are your activities for today;

P.E.

I wondered if today you might like to learn some dance moves! Here's a link to 'KIDZ BOP'; it includes lots of fun dance videos you might like to join in with! Alternatively, take the gentle option and try yoga again.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHd2s_saYsQ

Maths;

8 questions;

1. ¼ of 36 (so, how many 4's in 36?)

2. 1/3 of 21 (so, how many 3's in 21?)

3. 1/5 of 30

4. 1/8 of 40

5. 542 – 128

6. 348 + 226

7. 45 x 5

8. 655 divided by 5

Activity;

Today I'd like you to work on column subtraction. Do remember that if you can't subtract from the digit above you need to 'exchange' from the next column (ie 'borrow a ten'). Please can you complete the 2 activities I've set you on 'Mathletics'. If you don't have time to do both just select one. (NB You will need to have a piece of paper with you to help you calculate the answers using columns).

Literacy;

Last week I asked year 2 if they had any questions they would like to ask you all about class 3. They are feeling a bit nervous and have a few burning questions. Here are some of them;

 

Other questions have included;

Is Mrs Matthews fun?

Does Mrs Matthews like coffee and chocolate cake?

Do you do lots of P.E?

Your activity;

Please could you write a short letter to year 2 to tell them about what to expect in class 3 and to answer some of their questions. Remember to impress them with your neat, joined writing and super spellings and punctuation!! I'll post your letters on the blog to year 2 tomorrow- they will love to see your letters back to them!

Reading;

Dictionary Challenge:

Please can you use a dictionary to locate these words. Please can you tell me the definition of the word given in the dictionary and also the page number you found it on. Don't worry if you don't get time to do them all, just try as many as you can!

  1. Harbour
  2. Quay
  3. Tide
  4. Legend
  5. Myth
  6. Cliff
  7. Mountain
  8. Valley

Have a great day and have fun! Don't worry if you are unable to complete all the activities; just do what you feel you have time for.

Enjoy your activities for Mrs Kendall and Watkins and I'll be in touch on Wednesday. Please send me photos of your letters for year 2 as soon as you can so I can post them on Tuesday if possible.

Thank you so much for all your fabulous hard work!

Love from,
