Class 3





Welcome to Class 3’s page. We are a class of Year 2 and Year 3 children.

Our Teacher is Mr Ford and he is helped by our fantastically creative Teaching Assistant Mrs Davies. We are also helped by Miss Messenger. 

We feel safe in our class because everyone is kind. We are particularly good at writing and maths and like a challenge. Our class enjoy playing chess.

Class 3 Home Learning WB 18.1.21

Hi Class 3 Parents,

I hope the first full week of home learning has been a success. The dragon reports have been outstanding, full of imagination, similes and powerful adjectives. Well done on your adding and subtracting along with your science work.

This week your literacy work is ‘instructional writing’ called How to Trap a Dragon’. Your mathematics work is all about Fractions and you have a geography lesson to complete on ‘Oceans’.

I also attach some SPAG work for Year 3. Year 2 will continue to get their phonics work via Mrs Cooke.

Using Tapestry – a guide for parents

Dear Parents, 

Mrs Mc has prepared some instructions for how you can upload children’s work to Tapestry.

Using Tapestry – A Guide for parents and carers

As a school, we will be using Tapestry as our main means of setting work and communicating with parents during lockdown.  Here is a quick guide to its main features – if you have any difficulties please do call the school and we will do our best to sort them out.

You can download the Tapestry app to your phone or tablet (see logo above) or you can go to the website:

How does Tapestry work?

Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email – you should have received an email link and using this you can set your own password. If you do not currently have access please inform school and we can resend the email link. Staff are given a secure log-in and they can then upload observations, photos or videos and set work, plus see any comments/observations parents have added.

What is the PIN set up for?

When you access Tapestry through a mobile phone or tablet, please set a unique PIN when you log in for the first time. This will be required whenever you return to the application or after the screen has locked.

How do I change my settings on the computer?

At the top right of your screen you will see your name, and selecting this will give you the option to ‘Edit Preferences’. Choose this option and you will be presented with a screen giving you the option to change your email address and password. You also have the option to receive an email whenever a new observation is added to your child’s Learning Journal – just tick or untick the relevant box if you would like to change this setting.

How do I change my settings on iPhone/iPad/Android?

To change your settings on the iPhone/iPad app, click the ‘gear’ button on the top right hand side of the application. This enables you to change your password and/or email address.

How can I view my child’s Learning Journal?

Once logged in, you will see your child’s observations/work on your home screen in a list – selecting any one of these will open up the observation for you to look at. You may add comments in the box at the bottom of the observation if you would like to – and we would love to receive such comments!

How do I add an entry to my child’s Learning Journal?

Choose the ‘Add Observation’ option (or the ‘plus’ icon on your iPhone/iPad/Android) and add the relevant information in the boxes on screen. Photos and videos may be uploaded by choosing the ‘add media’ option. When you have saved your observation, you may go back to the home screen at any time by choosing ‘home’.

Tapestry Guide for Parents

School will be CLOSED to ALL children tomorrow

Dear Parents and Carers,

Further to this evening’s announcement by the Prime Minister, our school will now be closed tomorrow to ALL pupils.

Teachers will spend tomorrow putting ‘online learning’ into place as well as organising suitable provision for our Key Worker and Vulnerable children.

We would like to thank you all for your patience and we will be in touch soon with further details about your child’s learning.
