Welcome to Wheathill Class (Year 3)
Teacher: Mrs N. Talbott
Teaching Assistant: Mrs C. Hawley
The school has a blended learning approach this year if you need to self isolate at any time during the year. You can access our class work via your child's individual Google Classroom login, which has been stuck into the password page of their learning journal. Details of how to login have been sent to your parents and carers by email.
Children have been learning to access Google Classroom using our school tetra-tabs in our IT lessons but you might need to ask an adult for help when you login at home for the first time.
Each week you will find the work you need to complete when you are working from home. You then need to send your finished work back to me via google classroom so that I can review and mark it for you. Some tasks will require you to watch videos on other websites and complete tasks on paper. For these, you can ask an adult to photograph your work and send it to me by email to prove you have completed it.
Weekly Homework for all pupils
Weekly homework has been reintroduced for all pupils. Tasks will be added weekly to children's personal Google Classroom area. Children are expected to complete the piece of work for that week and send it to me each Monday.
Uniform and PE lessons: PE will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this term. Children should come to school in their PE Kit on these days. They will need to wear their school jumper. If you could supply an old shirt for art, we may be able to protect school jumpers from paint. I have a couple that have come up from Venn class if you brought one in last year. We will keep up with our active curriculum aiming to complete a GOLDEN MILE at times, so please ensure your child has suitable school shoes. We pop outside when the weather permits and don't need to be changing shoes for a quick jog.
Reading at home should be recorded in your child's reading record. It is their responsibility to bring these to school and home again each day as theses are also used for computer login details, spellings and any quick messages from me. Please aim to read at home at least 4 times per week.
Spellings are set weekly on Fridays and can be accessed via the spelling shed login. A list of the weekly spellings will also be stuck into learning journals should pupils wish to learn their spellings by other methods.
Homework tasks will be uploaded onto Google Classroom for children to complete each week. It is important that we continue to minimise the number of items being brought into school, therefore I ask that you photograph and email any work that cannot be submitted directly on Google Classroom.
Our Topic: Street Detectives
Our topic for the first part of the spring term is called 'Street Detectives'. During this topic we will be exploring the area of Milborne Port and its surrounds so that children may gain knowledge and insights into their local area, its geography, history and industry.
Thank you for your support!
Mrs Talbott and Mrs Hawley
English and Topic Skill Building Tasks - you can complete these if you cannot access Google classroom tasks when self isolating.
