End of Year 3 Message for Australia Class

****A message about Y3 Home Learning****

  • With the further partial reopening of school following Government guidelines there will be a change to the home learning on offer to some of our children from Monday 1st June 2020.

    With Mrs Darkin, Mr Swindells, Mr Virgoe and Mrs Teakle teaching our Reception, Year 1 and Key Worker children in school full time they will no longer be able to provide the detailed, creative range of home learning activities previously available.  Therefore, children (and adults) still working brilliantly at home in Reception Class, Year 1, Year 3 and Year 6 can continue their home learning using the Oak Academy and/or BBC Bitesize websites.  As well as this the Science and PE pages are still available to take some learning opportunities from.  In addition you can click HERE for a link to the Barefoot website which has many Computational Thinking activities you can do with your children.  Although linked to developing computing skills, these are largely about problem solving and do not depend on the use of technology.  There are some fun things to try!

    The teachers have really enjoyed engaging with you about your work via email and our class pages.  Unfortunately it will be incredibly difficult for them to maintain the same level of communication about work being done whilst planning and delivering the teaching and learning in school.  Please do understand that if they are unable to respond to emails or display work being done it is not because they don’t value that communication, but because their workload priorities are now back in school.  If you have an urgent email that requires a response it would be advisable to email it in to the office so we can ensure it gets to the teacher if need be.

    Thank you so much for your understanding with this developing situation and for your continued efforts at home.  Home Learning for children in Years 2, 4 and 5 can continue as normal for now.

Dear Parents and Carers of Year 3,


Please contact me directly, at any time, using the email address with any worries or concerns. I will reply to you as soon as I possibly can.


You and the children can still send me photos of their activities and upload work to me for their eportfolios. I will endeavour to keep this web page updated with photos, videos etc, it is likely just to be a little slower than during the previous weeks.  

There will be regular updates with new e-books set on Reading Planet with each child however, if you want more before I updated, please email me. 

There are daily online lessons from the government grant funded Oak Academy to access following the link

There are daily online lessons from the BBC that can be accessed following the link

May I say thank you to everyone for your understanding and support during this time.

Have a great week and stay safe. Please remember to follow the guidelines set out by the Government and Public Health.

Kindest regards,

Mr Virgoe

Tapestry and uploading work.

Although you may have received details for Tapestry, please if you wish to upload work, continue to send it to me via email as many of you have been doing for the past weeks and where I then subsequently continue to copy it into the eportfolios I built for your child. At present I have no need to use a different system and apologise for any inconvenience and we will continue to celebrate work on this webpage.
