Welcome to Adventurers

Welcome to Adventurers!

Adventurers Class are Year 3 children, ages 7 -8. They are taught by Mrs Roe and supported in class by Mrs Wood. Two days a week Mrs Taylor joins our class to listen to the children read.

Adventurers are taught English and Math everyday and enjoy covering all the curriculum foundation subjects in afternoon lessons. This half term, the children will be taught Tennis on a Thursday afternoon and ICT on a Friday morning by specialist teachers. They will also start swimming lesson on a Tuesday afternoon at Whitby Pool. The children will need to keep their P.E bags at school ready to take part in other activities if required and bring their swimming kit every Tuesday morning.

We try and read with the children every day at school and encourage children to develop their love of reading at home too. Reading books and  records will be sent home every night and books will be changed when they are completed.

In Year 3, children will be given homework in math and spellings. For maths, the children will be set work weekly on Sumdog. This will be given on a Thursday and checked the following Thursday. New spellings will be given out alternate Thursdays and children will be tested on them the Tuesday of the second week (I will write the test date on their spelling sheet).

Please don't hesitate to ask if there is anything else we can help you with.

An exciting week for Adventurers!

This week Adventurers have really enjoyed joining Learners in the hall for Collective Worship every morning and Celebration Assembly on Friday afternoon. We have been learning about our Christian Value ‘Thankfulness’ and discussing lots of things we are thankful for.

In science this week we made sundials and used compasses to help us observe how the sun appears to move across the sky from East to West. We learnt that it is the Earth that rotates and the sun doesn’t move. 

We’ve really enjoyed visiting the school library to pick our own books to read at home.

A great time back at school!

Adventurers have all enjoyed their first week back at school.

Their memorable moments have been everything! (So they said) But they did really enjoy learning  numbers to 10 in French, using the I pads to work on their coding and sequencing skills, loving the challenge of math key skills every day and creating cave paintings in art.

We also introduced our new Christian Value ‘Thankfulness’ and the children shared their thoughts of what they are thankful for. These included: friends, family, pets, food, their homes, school, nature, life and the world.

Hello Adventurers!

As we are having some technical difficulties with Tapestry at the moment I would just like to set you some home learning activities from your ‘Workout’ books.

If you would like top try different tasks, I have added these to a gallery below, which you may complete at home too.

Thank you for your patience.

It’s a grey but fresh morning and I think the sun might just get out.

We’ve been looking at metaphorical journeys we’ve been on and what amazing goals you have all achieved!

Good Morning Adventurers – A big well done to you all!

‘Make a wish……..and make it happen!’

I’ve been really amazed by all the new things you have achieved whilst learning from home. From riding your bikes without stabilisers, learning a new times table and joining letters in handwriting. You must feel really proud of yourselves.

You are my superheroes!

In part of today’s activities I would like you to think about how you felt learning something new and the ‘journey you took to success’.

Good Morning Adventurers!

‘Mountains to climb……opportunities to find!’

Hello everyone! I hope you managed to have a lovely weekend and find some sunshine.

I had a walk over the weekend and took some lovely photos of our beautiful surroundings.

I always like to hear about what you’ve been doing either on Tapestry or conversations on the phone and I’ve been amazed by all the things you’ve been achieving whilst at home.

Today’s activities includes writing about some of your achievements linked to our school story ‘Rain Before Rainbows’ as well as some maths, reading and art work. (More details on Tapestry)

Handwriting – practise the letter ‘Aa’

English – with reference to the words from our story ‘There are mountains for climbing and journeys to take’, I would like you to use these as a metaphor and think of the mountains you have climbed during your time at home.  For example, lots of you have learnt to ride your bikes without stabilisers. So let’s write about all our achievements.

Shared reading – Little Red Riding Hood

Maths – Key skills for Year 2 and Year 3. Then we will complete some work on place value.

Art and crafts – make your own superhero mask to celebrate your achievements.

I hope you enjoy some or all of these tasks and have a lovely day.

Good Morning Adventurers – Happy Friday!

I think we just have to ignore the grey skies and rain and make the most of our day. We can make some decorative indoor umbrellas and try our hand at being weather presenters…… and hopefully predict some sun!

Here’s today’s weather themed activities, if you wish to try them. (More details on Tapestry)

Covering lots of subjects, why not try being a weather presenter by making your own map of England and some weather symbols. Research the weather online or simply by looking outside then do a weather presentation like you would see on TV.

Shared reading – join me to read today’s story ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy.

Art and Crafts – make your own indoor umbrella.

Maths – have a go at lots of different symmetry activities.

I hope these activities manage to put a smile on your face and help you forget the rain.

Enjoy your day and have a sunny weekend.

Mrs Roe
