Reading

We are carrying on with our reading prizes this year. To work your way through to the prizes we are asking your child to read 3 times a week to an adult, if they do they will move up a number every week. Prizes are give at weeks 10, 20 and 39. 

Year 4 will be having their records checked every Thursday so please make sure they are in school. 

Thanks 

Mrs T-W

Hi all!

I hope you are enjoying your last week of 'school'. We have been having fun at school looking at our memories as well as making some new ones (most of these involve singing and dancing). 

Can I remind you to please send me a photo of yourself (year3@dingle.dudley.sch.uk) as I am trying to complete a little to replace our class photo this year. 

I hope you enjoy your Wednesday - we are going to be artists today! 

Have fun!

Year 3's Interesting Facts!

This week I asked year 3 to share an interesting fact so that I could share it with everyone: let's see what we have found out!

 

Did you know… it is illegal to stand within 90 meters of the Queen without socks on! - Mrs T-W

 

Did you know... the Eiffel Tower is shorter in winter than in summer. The Eiffel Tower is made of iron, which expands in heat and contracts in the cold. In warm weather, the tower grows by as much as 6 inches, and also leans slightly away from the sun. - Amelia

 

Did you know... tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur! - Jack Fox

Bonus joke: What do you get if you cross a dinosaur with a pig? Jurassic Pork

 

 

 

Hello! 

After speaking to some of you more recently I know that a lot of you have been keeping up with your reading but have read all of your school books. Remember that we always love you to read and reading for pleasure is very important. If you are struggling to find books that inspire you the image below might help you discover a new author or series of books. 

Mrs T-W smiley

Remember that you are always learning!

What can you do with a milk carton? I found this the other day and thought it was amazing! What could you make? I have seen come people make elephants and penguins over the last few weeks but would love to see more! Remember you can email your teachers with your creations. Have fun! Mrs T-W smiley

Fancy a challenge? Jack Fox showed me his knowledge of VE Day by creating a word search - how many of Jack's words can you find? Well Done Jack! I love this original way of showing me what you have been learning about.

Year 3's work WB 04.05.20 - Thank you to everyone who has emailed and sent pictures in this week. It has been lovely to see your research about VE Day, see your medals and decorations as well as how you have done in maths this week. Keep it up year 3 - I am one very proud teacher!

Year 3's Work WB. 27.04.20 - Thank you to everyone who has emailed, written and sent me pictures this week, it is truly amazing what you have all been doing and it has made my day whenever I see your smiling faces and amazing work that you have been getting up to.

Good Morning!

I saw this post today and thought it might interest some of you. I know that a lot of people have been doing displays in their window and some people have been trying to theme them around events that we have coming up... why not give it a go.

Remember parents it's not just for the kids, you can take part too. 

Mrs T-W

I came across this idea earlier this week and thought it was a nice way to recap some of things you have learnt in maths. Can you come up with your own ideas on how to use a cake tin? Have fun! Mrs T-W

Hello! I hope you are all having a lovely Easter break. I had a thought this morning - how many of you are missing science? It was one of my favourite lessons at school and I know for a lot of you it is your favourite subject too. So, I found some science activities that you can do at home if you wish. Enjoy! Mrs T-W

Year 3 Sping 2 Spelling Booklet - A couple of peolple have requested the spellings that are being missed: this is a booklet that you can work through for the spellings being taught this half term.

All the children have blown us away with their hard work and super achievements. Well done!

Thank you everyone who came and supported our Christmas craft morning, some of the children's creations were amazing and we couldn't have done it without your support. We hope you have a lovely time over the festive period and enjoy everything we have planned.

Year 4 Creativity Week

This week we have had the pleasure of having four student teachers from Newman University to help us learn about the Ancient Egyptians. Throughout the week we have learnt all about farming from the time. We have been very productive and created salt dough tools, been on a treasure hunt, junk modelled farms, built virtual farms on Minecraft and created a dance about making bread.  We have enjoyed the week and have learnt a lot!

Below are just a handful of photos depicting our week.

Winter Displays

As a school we are updating the corridor displays to a winter theme.  We have used the different poems that we have created over this half term and are showing them in our displays.  We have one depicting a winter scene which we based our Haiku poems on, then we used the 'Home for Christmas' advert from 2016 to create Cinquain poems and finally we created Winter and Jack Frost acrostic poems positioned in a frosted window.

WELL DONE YEAR 4!
