Y3 - Mrs Shimmin & Mrs O'Connor 2019 - 2020

Mrs O'Connor

Mrs Shimmin

Welcome

Hello, my name is Mrs Shimmin and I teach in Year 3 with Mrs O'Connor. I have been lucky enough to teach at Northway since 2007 and having taught in other year groups, I now really enjoy being part of the Lower Junior team.

My name is Mrs O'Connor and I also teach Year 3. I have been teaching since 2007 and have taught at schools in both Sefton and Liverpool before joining Northway in 2016. I have an undergraduate degree in French and a PGCE in Primary Education. When I'm not in school, I enjoy taking my dog, Charlie, for long walks on the beach. I'm really looking forward to this year and all of the exciting things we have planned for the class!

 

Daily Home Learning Plan 

So, it looks like school might be closed for a little while but we don’t want you to stop learning! It is really important that you carry on practising your basic skills and keep your creative juices flowing!  

Below is a list of ideas for things you can do when you should be in school. We will update our class page by 9:30am every Monday with some new ideas to keep you ticking over.  

Don’t forget to use your online learning log ins to keep your skills going. The links for some websites are below:

Numbots
Try logging into https://play.numbots.com/#/intro using your TTRockstars username and password. It is a new game to help you practise number bonds and improve your understanding of place value. It starts off very easy but it is important you work through each question so you can move onto challenges. You can earn rewards in a similar way to TTRockstars.

This week’s (week beginning Monday 6th April) inspiration: 

Creative time: Go online to http://www.picassohead.com/create.html and have fun creating your own Picasso inspired masterpieces! 

Music Chill time: Listen to songs by Texas and use the power point to learn about them and their work. 

Science: What are the 3 different types of rock? Make a poster explaining the difference between them and how each is formed. 

History/Geography: Use the attached map to complete the grid reference challenge! 

Mindfulness challenge: https://www.headspace.com/meditation/kids Use the Headspace app and practise some meditations. 

Information for this week:  

Calling all Poets!

Young budding poets across the Liverpool City Region are being asked to get creative and tell us what they are currently missing through the art of poetry! 

Aintree Racecourse has teamed up with Sefton’s Borough of Culture year to launch the Grand Poetry Competition with some fantastic prizes on offer for the winners. 

Click on the file 'Grand Poetry Competition' for more information. 

This week, your Maths learning involves practising everything you have learned about multiplication and division this year, using the adventure challenges that we have attached. You don’t need to complete these in one go (in fact, please don’t, spread them over a few days!).  

We would also like you to complete three Garage games and one Sound Check each day on TTR and this has been set for you. Once you have completed these, feel free to complete further activities and games! Why not send a Rock Slam to a friend? You also have a weekly task sheet to complete, which is useful for revising all of your Maths learning for the year. 

Read the 'TTRS Rock Slams and Battle Of The Bands' document in the 'Files To Download' section and have a go at these new challenges. The winning classes from last week were Mr Wright’s class, Mrs Phillips’ class, Mrs Farrington’s class and Mr Tomkinson’s class. Congratulations to them! This week’s brand new battle will start on Monday 6th April at 9:30am and will finish on Sunday 12th April at 6:00pm. The fixtures for this week are: 

 

1.     Mrs Catlin (Y2) vs Mrs Shimmin/ Mrs O’Connor (Y3) 

2.    Mr Wright (Y2) vs Mrs Phillips (Y3/4) 

3.    Mr Seery (Y4) vs Miss Stupples (Y6)
