Home Learning

01.02.21

Dear Woodpeckers,

 
Two more weeks to go....... we can so do this!!!! 
 
I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for helping and supporting with the home learning. i understand that without your input the lessons would not result in the quality work that you are all sharing with me. 
 
Following our terms topic of Food and Farming i have uploaded the BBC Documentary series This Farming Life from iplayer. It is on at 8pm before the watershed, however I am aware that it is on for 1 hour and is very informative. I will leave it up to your discretion whether you feel it is appropriate for your child to watch, it celebrates modern farming methods with some lovely scenery in Scotland and the Lake District, perhaps you could watch it together?
 
In addition next week's science has a cooking theme, again, if you can take control of the practical that would be great. I just felt that we couldn't end a topic about food without trying to cook something!
 
Please keep me posted on how things are going at home, I miss everyone, and am looking forward to being all back together as soon as it is safe to do so.
 
Best wishes
 
Rachel

Thank you

The first days of remote learning have been remarkably smooth in year 3 and that is testament to the brilliant attitude of the children who have really impressed me with their independence, hard work and amazing attitudes. The work they are sending is of such a good quality and their interactions online are really positive.

Thank you, to you, the parents for the hard work you are doing to support at home at this difficult time.

Dear Woodpeckers,

 

Woodpeckers weekly timetable

I don’t want to bombard you with too much information, however I want to share a short summary of what we expect your child to do during the course of the week, which we follow whether in school or working at home, in order to guide them and manage the school work. I hope that it is clear but please say if you have any queries.


I hope that most lessons work can be recorded either on line with the google docs, which can be sent straight back to me for feedback or with a picture posted on the stream or emailed to me. I hope we can quickly get into the new routines as many of them are the same as was before Christmas. Where lessons have altered it’s to ensure we have staffing in school to support everyone. We will also be sending home a work book which children can use to record the answers in, writing may be clearer on a plain piece of paper and any work can be photographed and emailed to me if that makes things easier for you. I am recording returned work each day, but I appreciate that there is flexibility with this. We are all trying our best so don’t worry if you can’t do everything. If your child is struggling please let us know, we want to be able to support everyone with this transition.

We will now be joined in our bubble by Mr McDonnell who everyone will know, our PE lessons are looking good! He may call to catch up with children and listen to readers also during the week, we are all trying to support you in any way we can.

Mrs Latty will still be supporting in our bubble also, she will be calling children and joining in with google meets. If your child was receiving support, then she will be continuing with this remotely where possible. We will contact you directly if we need to chat this through.

Mrs Hall and myself have split teaching during the afternoons, so will be marking the online submitted work and communicating with children and yourselves, when not in class.


You will see there are two google meets each day, 11am and 2pm. I appreciate that you may not be able to attend all these but I have tried to keep the format simple.

 

The first one allows us to read a chapter of Charlotte’s web together, so if you miss it please read it yourself. In the second, we shall be discussing the news stories from the daily Newsround bulletin. Please watch it before the meet and join in the chat. The website is: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Fridays are slightly different, I have detailed this below and Thursday afternoons is our PE slot so there is no google meet about Newsround that day.

I have also uploaded weekly optional homework activities on Education City. You do not have to complete these, however if you are struggling with the other work or want a change of scenery, they are there as something different, there is no requirement to complete them.
