Year 3 Remote Learning

Dear Parents/ Carers,

We hope this letter finds you safe and well. We have been busy preparing to offer remote learning for your child, beginning tomorrow (Wednesday 6th January 2021).

It is expected that your child logs on to ‘google classroom’ at the allotted registration time (see time table below). The lessons will be delivered by a mixture of live teaching, pre-recorded videos and slides. However, we will have members of staff monitoring your child’s attendance and engagement throughout every lesson. Each lesson will include an element of independent work, which the children will be directed to do and must submit the task, according to the teacher’s direction.

  10.00-10.10 10.10-11.00 12.00-12.10 12.10-1.00 2.00-2.10 2.10-3.00
Monday  Registration English Registration Maths Registration RE
Tuesday Registration English Registration Maths Registration Topic
Wednesday Registration English Registration Maths Registration Science
Thursday Registration English Registration Maths Registration Music
Friday Registration English Registration Maths Registration Art

In addition to the timetabled lessons above, it is our expectation that children read and practise their spellings and times tables daily for 10 minutes, as is usual practise. Resources to support this can be accessed in the usual way: www.timestables.co.uk and www.spellingtutor.co.uk.

Free e-books can be accessed at: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/
but you may have books at home that your child would prefer to read. We just ask that you record their daily reading in the reading record as normal.

To further support you with this, over the coming week, we will endeavour to hand post a resources pack which will include a pencil; daily spelling practise; a weekly reading comprehension; handwriting books and additional paper.

This is a challenging time for us all, and we truly appreciate all your support. Please do not hesitate to contact us via class dojo if you have any concerns or difficulties between 9.00am and 3.00pm; one of the Year 3 team will endeavour to get back to you.

Take care and keep healthy and safe.

Kind Regards,

Miss Connor. Mr Greene, Mrs Bradshaw and Mr Lawson


Dear Parents/ Carers,

In addition to the e-mail we sent earlier, here are some updates:

As per the timetable above, the children will have English, Maths and Science tomorrow.
If they log onto google classrooms, they will see that they have been invited to three classes:

Remote Learning-English
Remote Learning-Maths
Remote Learning-Science

Please can you ensure that your child has accepted the invitations before the start of tomorrow's lessons.

At the beginning of each allotted lesson time, children will need to join the google meet link at the top of the stream, which will then direct them to the lesson. Please ensure that your child knows to turn their microphone and camera off before joining the google meet.

Currently, there is one more classroom accessible to children. This is named: P.E/Well-being. We will be adding ideas of activities that children can engage in daily since it is so important for them to be active for both a healthy mind and body. We would love to see pictures of your children participating in their daily exercise!

Thank you once again,

Year 3 Teachers
