Dear Grade 3 students and families,
We would like to start by saying a huge thank you for all of your support over the past 3 days and patience as we make the final preparations for beginning our full program from Monday.
This update will outline necessary information regarding remote learning in Grade 3 and give you an insight into what a typical school day would look like for our students.
As you are aware we will be moving to a full schedule inline with the timetable of a typical day in school. Class timetables for G3A, B & C can all be found below for your reference. I would suggest printing a copy and having this visible in your child’s learning environment.
Remote Learning Grade 3 Timetable Student_Parent
A daily timetable will also be shared with all students, via Google Classroom at 7:50 each morning. This outlines the day’s tasks and also the times at which they will take place, again we are aiming to keep the remote learning as close to a nominal school day timetable as possible. Therefore, when the students would normally have PE, they will attend a remote learning PE class. Alongside the daily timetable, students will also see a video, from their homeroom teacher explaining what will be happening on that day. Please encourage your child to watch the video each morning and if they have any questions to bring those to the homeroom session from 7:50-8:10 each morning.
You can find an blank template below for your reference:
It is important that students are reminded that ALL specialist classes will commence with a Google Meet Video Call regardless of whether the class will be taught fully on video or partly synchronous and partly asynchronous. We will be reminding the students of this as we go. Therefore when it is time for a specialist class, students will enter the Google Classroom of that subject and click on the link at the top to join the Google Meet Video Call.
As always, the weekly planning will be posted on a Friday and next week’s planning can be found here. In addition, we will be sharing a ‘What you will need for next week’ which includes information about any resources that will be required for the following week’s lessons.
You can find the document for next week here:
What you will need Wk1
We understand that this is a lot of information however we are confident that the students will soon know exactly what they need to do. If they are stuck at any time, they can post onto our G3 Padlet helpdesk: https://padlet.com/jennifer_ja/ao2v3ayktvdzmqst
