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. days are Monday and 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

It has been a busy week in 3LW. In our English lessons, we have identified the features of a good set of instructions and used this to create a writing checklist. In addition to this, we used freeze framing and thought tracking in drama to help us generate ideas for our own instructions.Today, the children have started to write their instructions for a Stone Age child, who is going on their first hunt with the tribe hunters. 

In Maths, our focus has continued to be place value. We have explored how to represent 3-digit numbers in different ways, including using: a part, part, whole model; a place value grid; place value counters; base 10; numerals; and words. For example:

We have also been using our knowledge of place value to help us compare and order numbers to 1000, as well as estimating missing numbers on a number line. 

In our other work this week, we have started our project: How could I survive the Stone Age. The children have split themselves into small groups and planned out what information they will need to gather in order to produce a guide to surviving the Stone Age by half-term. We have also designed an ideal settlement for our Stone Age tribe, thinking about the different things that we would need nearby, e.g. a clean river, so that we have drinking water. 

Next week, we will be finishing our instructions in English, before starting a new genre. In Maths, we will be solving more/less than problems and developing our reasoning skills. Across the rest of the curriculum, we will be learning about how to stay safe online and completing an investigation linked to our Science topic of Light, as long as the weather allows us to!
