2. Add the hundreds.

3. Add the tens.

Homework 03.03.17

 

Following a wonderful book week at WBJS, we thought it would be apt to ask Year Three to review a book. It could be their favourite book, the book they are currently reading or any other book they would like. We have provided a template for both fiction and non-fiction and a link to the download the template at home, if necessary.

LOWER SCHOOL CHOIR - SPRING TERM

 

Here are the lyrics that Lower School Choir are learning for our next concert. Make sure you practise these at home.

 

The Elephant March (from The Jungle Book)

 

[Spoken]

Hup, two, three, four,

Keep it up, two, three, four.

Hup, two, three, four,

Keep it up, two, three, four.

 

Oh, the aim of our patrol,

Is a question rather droll,

For to march and drill,

Over field and hill,

Is a military goal!

Is a military goal!

 

[Spoken]

Hup, two, three, four,

Dress it up, two, three, four.

Hup, two, three, four,

Dress it up, two, three, four.

 

By ranks or single file,

Over every jungle mile,

Oh we stamp and crush,

Through the underbrush,

In a military style!

In a military style!

 

When I Grow Up (from the musical Matilda)

 

When I grow up,
I will be tall enough to reach the branches
That I need to reach to climb the trees
You get to climb when you're grown up.

And when I grow up,
I will be smart enough to answer all
The questions that you need to know
The answers to before you're grown up.

And when I grow up,
I will eat sweets every day,
On the way to work, and I will
Go to bed late every night.
And I will wake up
When the sun comes up, and I
Will watch cartoons until my eyes go square,
And I won't care 'cause I'll be all grown up.

When I grow up (echo)
I will be strong enough to carry all
The heavy things you have to haul
Around with you when you're a grown up.

And
When I grow up (Echo)...
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
That you have to fight beneath the bed
Each night to be a grown up.

And when I grow up,
I will have treats every day,
And I'll play with things that mum pretends
That mums don't think are fun.

And I will wake up
When the sun comes up and I
Will spend all day just lying in the sun.
And I won't burn 'cause I'll be all grown up.
When I grow up...

(Ms. Honey:)
When I grow up,
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
That you have to fight beneath the bed
Each night to be a grown up.

When I grow up...

(Matilda:)
Just because you find that life's not fair, it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it.
If you always take it on the chin and wear it, nothing will change.
Just because I find myself in this story,
It doesn't mean that everything is written for me.
If I think the ending is fixed already,
I might as well be saying I think that it's OK,
And that's not right!

 

 

 

 

I Won't Grow Up (from Peter Pan)

I won't grow up,
(I won't grow up)
I don't want to go to school.
(I don't want to go to school)
Just to learn to be a parrot,
(Just to learn to be a parrot)
And recite a silly rule.
(And recite a silly rule)
If growing up means
It would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree,
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not I,
Not me!
Not me!

 

I won't grow up,
(I won't grow up)
I don't want to wear a tie.
(I don't want to wear a tie)
And a serious expression
(And a serious expression)
In the middle of July.
(In the middle of July)
And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air,

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me,
Not I,
Not me!
So there!

 

Never gonna be a man,
I won't!
Like to see somebody try
And make me.
Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man,
Catch me if you can.
I won't grow up.
Not a penny will I pinch.
I will never grow a mustache,
Or a fraction of an inch.
'Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were.
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up,
No sir,
Not I
Not me,
So there!

I won't grow up!
(I won't grow up)
I will never even try
(I will never even try)
I will do what Peter tells me
(I will do what Peter tells me)
And I'll never ask him why
(And I'll never ask him why)

We won't grow up!
(We won't grow up)
We will never grow a day
(We will never grow a day)
And if someone tries to make us
(And if someone tries to make us)
We will simply run away
(We will simply run away)

I won't grow up!
(I won't grow up)
No, I promise that I won't
(No, I promise that I won't)
I will stay a boy forever
(I will stay a boy forever)
And be banished if I don't!
(And be banished if I don't)

Never Land will always be
The home of youth and joy
And liberty
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
No sir!
Not me!

 

 

 

 

Mister Mistoffelees (from the musical Cats)

 

The greatest magicians have something to learn
From Mister Mistoffelees Conjuring Turn
And we'll all say
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees


He is quiet, he is small, he is black
From his ears to the tip of his tail
He can creep through the tiniest crack
He can walk on the narrowest rail
He can pick any card from a pack
He is equally cunning with dice
He is always deceiving you into believing
That he's only hunting for mice

He can play any trick with a cork
Or a spoon and a bit of fish paste
If you look for a knife or a fork
And you think it was merely misplaced
You have seen it one moment and then it is gone!
But you find it next week lying out on the lawn

And we all say
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

 

Well! My manner is vague and aloof
You would think there is nobody shyer
But my voice has been heard on the roof
When I was curled up by the fire
And I've sometimes been heard by the fire
When I was about on the roof
At least they all heard that somebody purred
Which is uncontestable proof of my singular magical powers
And I've known the family to call me in from the garden for hours
While I was asleep in the hall

And not long ago this phenomenal cat
Produced seven kittens right out of a hat

And we all say
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

 

And not long ago this phenomenal cat
Produced seven kittens right out of a hat

And we all say
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Ladies and Gentleman, I give you the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees

Well done for a fantastic first half term at WBJS.  You have all worked hard, settled in well and we've had a lot of sun along the way.   This half term break, we have some homework set on SUMDOG, a maths and reading games platform.  Everyone has their passwords in their diaries and challenges have been set for each class in reading and maths.  This system auto-levels based on the answers given, so don't worry if the level of challenge is a little too hard or too easy to start with, it will balance out.  Also well done to you all for earning your year group treat this week!  Have a lovely half term break and we will see you all soon.

A big well done to everyone in Year 3 for an amazing team effort in Arts Week 2016.  We have accomplished so much in just one week, and you have all worked your socks off to get all the projects finished.   The finger knitting looks amazing, the flying fish are spectacular, the rainbow clay models are stupendous and the jellyfish will look fantastic.  Watch this space towards the end of the week as we'll have more of your videos and photos to post on the blog.

 

Also well done earning your year 3 treat a couple of weeks ago.  50 runes are not easy to get! I hope you all enjoyed the well deserved treat time on Friday.

Well done for another great week Year 3!   This week we were multiplying with counters, describing Viking Gods and Monsters and now have a good understanding of the many realms the Vikings believed in.

Winter is finally here and it's getting very chilly!   In light of this please make sure you have suitable clothes at school and for PE.   For next Thursday, please bring jogging bottoms rather than shorts and that you have trainers and socks to wear for PE.

Happy New Year!

 

Welcome back to all Year 3!  It has been an action packed week back. We got off to a great start in table tennis on Tuesday and managed to not loose all the ping pong balls under the benches and the piano in the hall.  We have begun a new topic in ICT looking at databases and exploring the natural world and we have also started our new Viking and Anglo-Saxon project.   

 

We would like to thank all Year 3 children and parents for your time and effort investigating Vikings as a homework over Christmas.  The quality and creativity of all the work is a sign of great things to come.   In the coming weeks we will become enveloped by Norse Mythology, consumed by mythical and magical creatures and bamboozled by Viking Berserkers.  It's going to be a fantastic term!

Merry Christmas All Ye Year 3

 

It has been a great last week and an emotional one too.  Mr. Dix has had a great last day. Your kind words, presents and cards have all been much appreciated.  He has been an inspiration to us all in year 3 both children and teachers alike.   But as they say...  As one door closes, another opens.   When we get back, we all look forward in anticipation  to getting to know Mr. Summersby a little better.   Rest assured, though not Mr.Dix, he is also an inspirational and highly accomplished class teacher.

 

Well done for all your hard work this term.  We are all very proud of you! Finally, all the year three staff wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  Indeed, as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' has it,  "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.!'"

We've really started to fly with our handwriting practise now in year 3 and I can already see some really beautiful work in books. Well done everyone! Your homework this week is to practise your handwritng by watching Mr Dix's handwriting video and doing some in your homework books.

 

There is also another handwriting video further down which looks at the 'a' sound (ay, ai, a, a_e) and this one is about the 'e' sound (ea, ee, e, y). It even has Mr Dix's old band playing in the background on the first song and some of his friends bands afterwards. Enjoy! I'll add another one each week which you can keep using if you want to improve your handwriting.

We've also been adding on a numberline in Year 3. If you'd like to work with your parents/carers at home on some sums, then watch this video to see how we've been doing it in class. This is Olivia and Lucy in Year 5 explaining it!

We've had lots of requests for the blog! Keep them coming. Lots of children have asked for more songs so here are two more we've listened to and watched in class. The first is a video called Synonyms where we said we wanted to use better words than BIG, SMALL, WENT, SAID, GOOD and BAD. The next song is Mr Cunningham's song called 'Prepositions'. Enjoy!

In maths, we've been looking at number squares and how to find 1 or 10 more than a number. Our record in Class 3 was a score of 11 on the dog bone game. See if you can beat it! Sam also requested something with animals. So this one is for you Sam!
