  Welcome to Year 3 

Musings from Miss Timms (25/3/20)

 

Times Table Rock Stars

Well done all those children who have been on Times Table Rock Stars, nearly everyone has logged on in the past few days so keep it up. However, the boys are still in the lead with 7,573 points and the girls have 1,359. Well done Magda, who is our current leader amongst the girls. 

 

I have also had lots of children challenging me, which is great. Remember you can challenge everyone in Year 3. 

 

Spelling Shed

We have new leaders on Spelling Shed. Well done Emma, Isla and Leo. 

 

Edinburgh Zoo

Edinburgh Zoo have put up webcams so people can continue to watch the animals. They include penguins, pandas,, tigers and koalas. https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/panda-cam/ 

 

I am looking forward to seeing all the different things you have been doing at home over the next few weeks, which we can share on our page. 

 

Have fun, stay safe and keep washing your hands

We also learned some traditional Indian dancing and performed our own routine at the end of the day. We had a lot of fun, thank you to Jay de Silva!
