As we look ahead to more pupils returning to school next week we have enjoyed looking back over the brilliant Remote Learning that our Year 3 pupils have been doing away from the classroom. The past few months have seen children and staff adapt to new ways of learning. It is so encouraging to see the enthusiasm and effort that each pupil has put into their Remote Learning.
Our Year 3 pupils have benefited from three live zoom sessions a day with their class teacher and an additional pre-recorded lesson to access independently each day. Lessons have covered a wide range of topics. English lessons have focused on puppet shows, performance poetry, myths and legends. During their humanities lessons the children learnt about the Romans with a virtual market tour, a mosaic design masterclass and an insightful session designing their our legion standards.
Remote science lessons covered a variety of topics from wildlife to space! The children took part in wildlife hunts in their local area, spent time classifying wildlife, completed a project inspired by the West Midlands Safari Park and undertook a Space X rocket investigation.
In their maths lessons, the children have been consolidating addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. All pupils have enjoyed creating multiplication games to aid the Year 2 children’s transition into Year 3. A highlight of the learning week has been “Fun Fridays” that have involved playing multiplication bingo on zoom.
Take a look at all the fabulous learning our Year 3 children have enjoyed:
Year 3 teacher, Miss Owens is full of praise:
“It’s been amazing to see the Year 3s respond in such a positive way to remote learning. They have engaged with all work, showing resilience, independence and a development of new skills. Outside of lessons, they have also taken on a range of extra curricular challenges that has kept the Hawford spirit alive in their homes”.
