Sycamore (Year 3)

Sycamore Class 2020

Sycamore Class is our Year 3 class, for children aged between 7 and 8.

 

Hello Sycamore Class - I am your teacher, Mrs Cresswell, and Mrs Dunford is supporting our learning as the class Teaching Assistant every morning, with Mrs Wheeler every afternoon.

 

We are operating a one-way system where you will be able to drop off your children between 8.35am – 8.55am in the morning using the Willow Gate. Our afternoon pickup is at 2.50pm. Parents wait on the playground by the Y3 corner at the back door.

 

PE kit (tracksuit bottoms, a T shirt, trainers and their school sweatshirt) should be worn to school on Wednesdays.

 

If you have any questions, please email sycamore@grove.oxon.sch.uk .

 

 

January 2021

It is great to be back at school again with some of you, and I look forward to seeing your remote work if you are learning at home this term.

 

There will be daily work and updates on our Class Dojo page. I will be putting the daily work up every morning on Class Dojo and it should take your child about 3 hours a day to complete the tasks set. If you need to complete work at a different time, such as in the evenings or at the weekend, this is fine, just keep working through the provided lessons in the same order.

 

Please email me if you have lost your username/ password or are unable to log on, as this is my main way of sharing information including weekly homework with the class.  I will also put the same links on our class MS Teams page and on this page (see below). The same work will be in all three places so you need only access it through a single platform. 

 

Please let me know as soon as possible if your child will not be able to watch these video lessons. They do work on a smartphone, and require nothing else except a pencil and paper. If you need paper copies of the worksheets, please email sycamore@grove.oxon.sch.uk as soon as possible if you have not already let me know. The office will contact you to let you know when these are ready and you can come and collect them from school every Monday from 9am.

 

We are starting to use Microsoft Teams, and will be having a daily class "assembly" through it this term. Click the link below and use the username and password you were sent to join us at 1pm.

 

Please continue to read at home at least three times a week, and practise on Times Table Rock Stars as often as you can.

Homework is sent home on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Thursday please. This is set online through Class Dojo but is also available on paper. (During the 2021 lockdown this will just be a spelling sheet and Thursday test for those children in school, with a matching weekly spelling task on Class Dojo for those working at home).

 

PE is on a Wednesday afternoon, so please make sure your child wears their PE kit to school.

 

We love reading!

If you would like to buy a book for Sycamore Class rather than sweets for your child's birthday, or are looking for recommendations, you can see our class wishlist here, or visit The Reader Teacher .
