Year 3 Home Learning

Posted on: 27 Mar 2020 by Weston Green School

Year 3 Home Learning

Wow!  What a week!  Anyone who says that it is difficult to ensure learning continues outside of the classroom has not encountered the Weston Green Year 3 children, their parents and their teachers!  Learning comes in all shapes and sizes and means different things to different people. This week the values we work hard to instil in the children of Weston Green have shone through, and here’s how:

Adaptable: It’s been amazing to see how children have adapted to life learning at home.  So many children have worked out different ways to do things and shared this with their friends online.  Rafe, Eddie and Oscar have really stood out with their helpful suggestions and comments on the class stream.

Aspirational: Everyone has aspired to make this work - and it is and will continue to improve.  Jack has been really positive and has encouraged his classmates with positive responses to tasks set, while Finn has approached everything with such enthusiasm, which shows he is aspiring to make the most of this situation.

Curious: When faced with a challenge, the children have worked ways round issues they have encountered.  Dmitriy and Leo have shown great curiosity when exploring how to make a task work for them.

Patience: Children and parents have been patient with the staff who are getting to grips with new technology.  The staff are learning too, and patience has been greatly appreciated. Roshi was patiently waiting for his turn to chat during our class hangout and Ollie is being patient with how he approaches the tasks and doing what works for him and his family.

Gracious: Henry won star of the week for being supportive to his friends (and teachers) and sharing his technological knowledge to help us all. Kindness has been seen everywhere and Mrs Evans would be pleased that, amongst others, Freya and Evie were all grateful for the video message she shared.

Honest: We have been honest with each other about how we are finding things a bit strange this week - it’s been good to be honest and share our feelings.  Chloe was happy to share she was finding a task tricky this week - and probably made others feel better by doing so.

Respectful: Children followed our online rules by not talking over each other during our hangouts and using our Google Classroom sensibly and with good intentions. 

We have also embraced our learner profiles by being resilient in the face of change, Panos and Alicia have really shone with their perseverance and determination.  We have heard repeatedly this week that the children have been brilliant getting on with their tasks on their own - displaying their independence.  There is a time and a place for taking risks, and the children have been talking about how they are staying home and avoiding risk this week.  

And as we reflect on the last few weeks, the team at Weston Green has risen to the occasion.  The Year 3 team have been supported by their amazing colleagues and have been encouraged by the support from the parents.  It’s been heartwarming to know that we really are all in this together. #teamwestongreen
