MEET THE TEAM

Miss Fitzpatrick is Class 3's teacher with Mrs Wood, Mrs Topham and Mrs Sutcliffe who are our teaching assistants.  Mrs Webster teaches in class on Friday afternoons.

We have 36 children in our class which is a mixed class of year 3 and year 4 children.  In Class 3 we work on a two year cycle so that we have lots of variety in our studies. 

Home learning Update January 2021

 

Good Morning 

I would like to begin by expressing how much I am thinking about you and your families during another national lockdown. I appreciate how difficult it must be missing loved ones and juggling the demands of your own work/ home commitments alongside home schooling. We really can't wait to be back in class with your wonderful children and I am hopeful that this is the last time we have to be working remotely. We are aiming to develop a new routine with remote learning and I have added some information below about how we intend to work going forward.

I have created a PowerPoint below with three tasks on for the children. One English, one Maths and one Topic based activity. 

On the Powerpoint there is a range of worksheets for the children to choose from based on the level they may be working at. This term the children have begun to self-select their task within lessons. I have created a ‘chilli challenge’ for the children and the work is labelled as ‘mild, spicy or hot.’

As a rule all year three children should be able to access the ‘mild’ worksheets and most year four children should be able to access the ‘spicy’ worksheets. However please complete the worksheet that you feel is the most appropriate for your child.

I have listed some key information below:

  • All work to be completed in your Yellow English/ Topic book and Orange Maths book
  • You will have one Maths, one English and one Topic based activity to do each day.
  • You can print the questions and stick them in OR copy the questions into your book and answer them.
  • Please remember each piece of work needs the date and L.O clearly labelled.
  • This week we will be meeting daily on Microsoft Teams at 9:30 where we will have catch up and will mark the previous days work together. I will label each slide with what work can be sent to me via email for feedback.
  • Please read through the challenges and choose one worksheet/ slide that will challenge YOU. If you want to complete more than one that is okay.
  • Short tasks- Yellow slides Spend 15 Minutes per task.
  • Maths- Green Slides- Must watch teaching video and complete at least ONE  per Day.
  • English- Orange Slides- Must complete at least ONE per Day.
  • Topic/ Afternoon- Blue slides- Must complete  at least ONE per Day.
  • The children should aim to complete three pieces of work per day.

As always, I would like to thank you for your unwavering support! Please know we are working through this really difficult time together.

Take care 

Miss Fitzpatrick

A big hello to Class 3 April 2020

I would first of all like to say a big hello to you and your parents. My name is Miss Fitzpatrick, and when the world returns to normal (which I am hoping is really soon) I am going to be your new teacher. I am really excited to meet you all again and for us to have lots of fun learning together in Class Three! 

Here is a little photo so you know what I look like :)

 

Children, I know you have lots of activities to be keeping you busy but the most important thing you need to be doing at this time is to be looking after yourselves. You are going to go down in History (how cool is that?) as the children who had to FREEZE their learning and stay indoors. When you are old enough to tell the tale, you will be able to talk about all the extra time you got to spend learning new things at home.  So please, as well as completing the work in your home learning packs, do play outside, watch your favourite TV program, learn a new skill, make something, dance, play and find time to do something fun! If you like, you can send me an email with all the lovely things that you are doing on top of your home learning.  (I love cake so I am learning how to cook lots of yummy treats!)

Parents, I know you may be worried about your child's progress and attainment during this time. Please be mindful that every child in the world's education has been put on hold, currently no child is ahead and no child is behind.  Each child is exactly where they need to be- at home with you.

Just manage what you can and know we are working through this really difficult time together. 

 Stay safe and see you soon

Miss Fitzpatrick
