Year 3 Remote Learning
Welcome to Year 3!
On this web page you will find details of the arrangements for any Home Learning to mirror our in-class learning, should any child be stuck at home because of quarantine requirements.
We heartily thank parents and carers for their support with remote learning – it really does make a difference to your child’s progress! Mrs Pooley and Mrs Hudd.
Here are some instructions of how you can login and use google classroom with your school google account (The one you use on the Chromebooks at school).
Home Learning for Lockdown
Unfortunately, because of the current COVID situation, there may be times during the school year when children need to isolate at home (because they or a family member have symptoms) or when the school needs to send children home because of an outbreak. At Andrews’, we recognise that by far the best place for children to be is in school. However, should the need arise, we are also committed to ensuring that there is as little disruption as possible to children’s learning by providing easily accessible, structured home learning.
As with weekly homework, Google Classroom will provide the means for children to upload their isolation learning for marking. We have sought to support home learning using resources such as Oak National Academy and White Rose maths, as these offer short videos and related structured tasks to support the children’s independence.
A typical weekly timetable for home learning in isolation would be as follows, although we naturally understand that in a COVID situation, this may not always be possible. The timetable shows the relevant Oak National Academy units that cover material similar to that which we are covering in school this half term, so that home learning can commence from the first day away from school. The Home Learning tab on White Rose clearly shows the current week’s learning. Children who are less confident with maths can also easily access the Year 2 pages. We thank parents for their support in doing whatever seems achievable under the relevant circumstances. 😊
