3LW 2017 - 2018
Welcome to 3LW
Welcome to our class page. Here you can access our weekly update, class spellings and homework. Our P.E. day is a Monday and we will be going swimming on a Thursday.
My name is Mrs Whipp. I have been at Offley for four years now, having initially started as a maternity leave cover for Mrs McLoughlin. Before joining Offley, I taught at a variety of schools across both Cheshire and Manchester. My subject responsibility at school is computing, which I love. Outside of school, I live with my husband and enjoy walking, drawing and reading. As I love learning new things, I am currently learning to quilt.
It has been another busy week in 3LW. In English, we finished learning our non-chronological report about tigers. We also identified the transferable features that we can apply to our own non-chronological reports and started to write a non-chronological report about piranhas. As a class, we have looked at how to adapt the learnt report. Here are the opening sentences to our report:
One of the fish family’s most dangerous members is the piranha. Generally, they are found in South America, in countries such as Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela.
In Maths we consolidated our knowledge of multiplying a 2-digit number by a single digit and used this to help us solve more complicated problems. Towards the end of the week, we started to look at how we can apply similar strategies to help us to divide a 2-digit number by a single digit. We used partitioning to make the calculations easier and used base 10 equipment to help to visualise the process.
In our other lessons this week, we found out where the rainforests of the world are located and labelled them on a map. We also had our first swimming lesson of the term and started an exciting project in Music. In addition to this, in Computing we tried to recreate a design that Mrs Whipp had made using the given code segments and in Science we learnt about the different types of skeletons, (endoskeletons, exoskeletons and hydrostatic skeletons) before working in teams to try to work out what animal each skeleton belonged to.
Next week, in English we will finish adapting the non-chronological report to fit with our whole class animal, the piranha. In Maths we will be consolidating our understanding of division methods and applying our knowledge of both multiplication and division to solve problems. In our afternoon sessions, we will be researching our own choice of rainforest animal, looking at the difference between climate and weather and designing our own code to create 2D shapes.
