Redwings Daily Hello

Good morning Redwings, I hope you are all well. I am still experiencing technical difficulties with my laptop so I am going to write to you instead! 

TTRS- Boys are winning at the moment with Logan and Tayla as our top scorers for each team. Well done to you both! Let’s see if we can earn some more points today and win the Year 3 battle again!


Daily Riddle- Yesterday’s answer was ‘a sponge’ and congratulations to those that guessed correctly. Todays riddle is: What goes up but never comes back down?


Daily Joke- What do you call a cow on a trampoline...a milkshake!


Thank you to everyone who sent learning, photo’s and GIFs yesterday. Although I can’t show you at the moment, I can still receive them so keep sending over your answers to the riddle, any jokes, GIFs, photo’s and learning! 

Have a lovely weekend-enjoy the bank holiday and VE day.

As the weather is due to be rubbish for a couple of days, I have written a short sports quiz for you. There are some current questions, some historical research for you to do, an anagram to solve and a follow up clip to watch if you wish.


Hopefully this will keep you busy and thinking about the history of sport until the good weather returns next week!

BBC - Great British Bunting

With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, BBC Radiowanted to come up with a way for people across the UK to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.


They have sent some guidance on making some bunting that you can display in your window, so we wanted to pass this on.


If you do make some bunting then we would love to see some photos of it.

22.04.20 PE


Basketball has always been a popular sport at White Rock, and our nearest professional team are the Plymouth Raiders. Some of their coaches have released some videos designed to challenge and develop your skills.


Try the skills they shown you! Work your way through the videos from number 1 onward and see how many of these challenges you can complete using the correct techniques. Don't worry if you can't complete them all - simply find your own level of challenge and have some fun with them and show off your skills to your family!


You may use a ball of your choice. What difference does it make to how hard you find the skills when you use different size and weight of balls?


Enjoy the challenge, and whilst you are on the Raiders YouTube page, check out some of their game footage to see how the game is played at the top level in the UK.


Have Fun!

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!

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!

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.
