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
Good Morning parents,
I have created a PowerPoint 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.
All work is to be completed in the children’s purple homework book to be handed in on Monday 2nd November for feedback.
You can print the worksheets off or the children can copy the questions and answer them in their books.
The children should aim to complete three to four pieces of work per day (if they are well enough to do so). Please aim to spend between 30-45 minutes on each topic to complete ONE or TWO of the worksheets.
Home/ School Communication
Throughout the week I will be telephoning each family to see how you all are. If you have any questions, concerns or feel like your child would benefit from a conversation before this please do email me or ring school. Please feel free to email me any work the children have done.
Additionally on Friday 23rd of October please could you email me with an update of your child's week using the format highlighted in red below.
It is beneficial for us to have a guideline of what work the children have accessed whilst they have not been with us in school.
Please manage what you can and know that we are working through this difficult time together. The most important thing is that you are all safe and well.
Me, Mrs Topham and Mrs Wood can’t wait to be back in class with your lovely children!
Take care and know that we are thinking about and missing you all!

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
