We have had a super first day in Year 3. We painted a Giant for out topic wall in preparation for reading a Lancashire folktale about Johnny the Giant. Here are some photos:

We have now had our first session with the Let's Go Sing Animateurs. The children had an amazing time and we learnt a grand total of 4 new songs ready for the concert in March!

We have been learning about the Jewish Sukkot Festival. We created our own Sukkah (tabernacle) and thought about the similarities and differences between the Jewish and Christian Harvest festivals.

Today, we read the folktales that we have been writing to our families.

Today, we made and recorded observations about human skeletons. We also asked and answered questions about them using secondary sources.

This is the special place in our classroom where we come to together and think about our lives, God and the school values.

Remote education at St Lawrence CE Primary School

  • Every member of staff is still working full time in school.
  • Teachers and teaching assistants will be available throughout the day to answer any queries you or your child has about the work that has been set.
  • There is no difference between the work set in school and the work that is completed by pupils at home.
  • Literacy and Numeracy lessons taught in each class are shared via Zoom so that every child has contact with their teacher on a daily basis. Children joining by Zoom will be expected to join in with the learning in class.
  • Lessons will be shared via the class pages on the website and / or class dojo.
  • Children at home and in school will be set a personal project to work on alongside the formal teaching. This could be a history, science, art or DT project. Additional work will be set for other subjects.
  • Pupils will be encouraged to take part in PE activities from home.

In all subject areas, standards of teaching and learning will remain at the usual high standard. Pupils will be expected to submit work and teachers will mark and return it. Everyone at home and in school has worked incredibly hard throughout the Autumn Term to plug gaps in learning; pupils were making excellent progress. We do not want to let that slip!
