Dear Parents, Children and Carers of Year 3,
We would like to tell you that we are so proud of all of you – you have worked so hard and tried your very best over the past two months to get the work done, sometimes under very difficult circumstances. Let’s hope the above message is really true, and that this is the final week of online teaching coming up!
With that in mind, this message is to inform you of two changes about next week’s online lessons on Wednesday and Thursday in Year 3. This lesson replaces the usual online reading lesson with Mr Butler on Wednesday and the Maths lesson with Miss Watson on Thursday.
Firstly, on Wednesday 3rd March, all online lessons will take place from 9am-10am, with your child’s class teacher and any children in school from your child’s class. This is a bit of a ‘social’ / PSHE style lesson and a chance for children to ask questions and discuss things with their teacher, plus take part in a few ‘fun’ activities – possibly related to books!
Secondly, you may already know that each year, on World Book Day (Thursday 4th March this year), we invite children to dress up as their favourite book character and come to school or online lessons dressed up. We usually have a parade of costumes and a big assembly in the hall. Obviously this assembly won’t be possible next week on Thursday (1 week today). However, we are hoping that all children (and their teachers!) will still be able to dress as their favourite character and come to school / online lessons in costume.
Therefore, on Thursday 4th March as well, online lessons will all take place at the same time of 9am-10am, with your own class teacher again. This will be to ‘parade’ our book day costumes and chat about our books and costumes, share favourite books, poems, reading ideas and one or two other activities related to book week. Remember to bring any books or resources you want to share with other people to the lesson – perhaps a funny poem or a book you enjoyed by an author you haven’t read before etc.
