Class 3

Welcome to Class 3! 
Welcome to Class 3
 
For the time being, this page will be updated as regularly as possible with all the things that everyone has been getting up to during these uncertain and strange times. 
Keep an eye on this page for updates and photos of what everyone in Class 3 have been doing whilst learning from home. 
Covid-19 Time Capsule:

How can I keep my children busy at home?

This Home Learning 2020 Time Capsule Resource Pack is a great way to keep children of all ages busy while at home. Children can work through a selection of worksheets which encourage reflection on their new way of life. The completed sheets can then be put into an indoor family time capsule. Make a note on the calendar to look back on this work to remind yourselves of what life was like for a while.

What is included within this pack?

The pack includes a quick parent overview, a 2020 Time Capsule Activity Booklet, a 'Letter to My Future Self' activity, a Home Learning Diary and a sheet with information about how to create an outdoor time capsule.

How can children make a time capsule with this pack?

Put the completed activities in this pack in a tabled time capsule box and make a note on the calendar to look back at them at the end of the year. 

This is what Miss Holmes has been up to in week one of working from home. As well as keeping in communication with you, I have had some more time to spend outside with my dog. 
Miss Holmes took Nellie on another walk this morning. She loves running. I would love to see pictures of videos of what you have been up to.
