TTRS as of last night!

27.03.20 - Dance

This is the last part of our breakdancing learning. I have put a link below to a BBC Teach website, where you can learn some street dance. Breakdancing, hip hop and street dancing all use pretty much the same moves. Watch the video and have a go. It is really tricky, so I thought this would be good to keep going back to over the Easter holidays. You can then add these moves to your dance and perform a breakdancing battle with others in your family (if you want to). I would love to see some videos or pictures of you having a go at this. Please email them to me at ntyson@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk 

I look forward to seeing them and have fun!

27.3.20 Writing

Today we will be writing a short story based on the plans we wrote yesterday. This is a chance for you to use all of the skills we have been practising this week. Have fun!

27.03.20 – Y3 Linking tenths to decimals.

 

Click on Lesson 5 and investigate how to represent a fraction as a decimal e.g. ½ = 0.5 (0.5 is halfway between 0 and 1). If 1/10 = 0.1, what else can you find? 2/10 must be the same as 0.2. Watch the video and have a go at the worksheet. Any questions, please contact your teacher. Have fun and have a lovely Easter!

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!

 

Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players  which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.

 

There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?

 

To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...

 

Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.

Email me your ideas ileaman@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk.

 

Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!

 

Good Luck from Mr Leaman!

Click on Lesson 3 and investigate counting up and down in tenths. Remember that 10/10 is the whole so there are lots of ways of making 10/10 e.g. 1/10 + 9/10 = 10/10.  Watch the video and have a go at the worksheet. Any questions, please contact your teacher. Have fun!

Remote Sunflower Challenge!

Remote Sunflower Challenge! 1

Thank you to Lisanne Spark who came up with this amazing challenge! Sunflowers, with their bright petals and strong stems, are well known for being 'happy' flowers. We would like to challenge all Year 3 children to plant a sunflower seed on Friday 27th March and watch them grow.

 

We will be sharing photos and measurements every Friday so think carefully about where you plant your seed and what it needs to grow. Make sure to email your teacher with your photos and measurements so we can watch our sunflowers grow together.

 

Happy growing!

In Dance, Year 3 have been learning some breakdancing moves. These moves are also used in Hip Hop dancing as well. Here are some new moves for you to follow along to and include in your breakdancing.

As well as Dance ideas, there is a link to Joe Wicks 5 minute moves to keep you fit and active indoors.
