Year 3

Welcome to the Y3 class page. 

As the weather warms and Spring approaches, I hope everyone continues to be safe, healthy, and happy. We have some new areas of study this term, so check out the information below for any relevant updates, as well as updated information for what to do if there arises a need to self-isolate.

As always, if you need any help, support, or clarification, I am available after school. Alternatively, you can make an appointment in the school office.

Remote Learning and Self-Isolation from Spring 2022

As children no longer have to self isolate if they are close contacts of someone with Coronavirus, they should only normally need to be off school if they, themselves test positive.  In this situation they may well be feeling unwell and so there is no expectation that they complete work while they are at home.  However, some children have no symptoms, despite testing positive and in this case it is expected that they continue to do learning at home as much as they are able.  The school will provide the following: 

  • A ‘Get Going’ sheet with lots of ideas of things that children can usefully practice 
  • An outline of the current topics of learning so that children can research or find resources from other sources such as the BBC website or Oak Academy 
  • Lesson by lesson work can be requested from school if you feel your child is able to complete such work but will not be posted automatically as this is time consuming for teachers.  This work will be on Google Classroom/Tapestry 
  • Even if requested, depending on the current capacity in school, it may not be possible for the full curriculum to be provided (for instance if the class teacher is not available for work).

If the whole class has to close for any reason, a full remote offer will be provided if at all possible (again depending to some extent on staffing capacity).  This will normally involve: 

  • A daily Google Meet at 9:30am 
  • Daily lessons and activities in Maths, English and one or two other subjects posted on Google Classroom

Get Going in Year 3

If you are at home self isolating and you are well enough to be busy with some learning we would like you to go onto Google Classroom to see what work your teacher has set for you.  If you can't, or it doesn't work for you, below this section is what your class are learning this week so see if you can match what you are doing to on here.  if you are REALLY stuck and your can't do either of those things, here is your 'Get Going' sheet with ideas of things that are always good to work on.

During the lockdown, we have been fortunate to have an online community to stay connected with friends and family. It's easy to forget that we must consider our safety online in all areas. Please take a look at this article regarding the TikTok App, and stay safe!
