3LW 2017 - 2018

Mrs Whipp

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.

Weekly update

We have had a fantastic week for Science Week. We have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a wide range of science activities. We started the week with a visit to a strange crater that had appeared in Mrs Robertson's room, before learning all about the Mars Curiosity Rover. Throughout the week, we worked on our designs for our own rover to land our cargo (raw eggs) safely into the crater. This was completed today (Friday) and our final design managed to land one egg safely.

On Tuesday, we visited the Starlab and learnt about the stars that we can see from Sandbach and tried one of the experiments that Major Tim Peake conducted in space. On Wednesday, we had a visit from United Utilities, who taught us all about the natural water cycle. We also learnt a very important water safety message - No lifeguard, no swimming. In addition to this, the children found out what should and should not be flushed down the toilet. They took part in an experiment and discovered that flushable wipes should not be flushed down the toilet!

Also this week, we have created our own speakers with the help of John and Mitch using paper plates. We then experimented with creating our own magnets and using static electricity. 

Throughout the week, we also found out the function of different parts of a plant and planned an experiment to find out what a plant needs to grow. In our other lessons, we: edited and improved a piece of writing in English; and created bar graphs using Excel and the data that we collected last week.

Finally, today we used Virtualitees to find out about our internal organs and skeleton. 

Next week, we will be going on our residential trip Monday and Tuesday (very exciting). When we return we will be finishing our work on measures in Maths, completing some follow-up activities linked to our residential and writing an informal letter in English.

This video was produced for young children to educate them about staying safe.
