Welcome to Term 3. Although the start of this term is very different to term 1 and 2, we still have lots of exciting learning for the children to engage with.
Our curriculum question this term is:
Who helps us?
This term, the adults in Panda Class have changed slightly as we have a student teacher starting with us. His name is Mr Head and he will be teaching Panda Class alongside Miss Jackson. The classroom TAs during Term 3 will be Miss Burchfield and Mrs Burden for every day other than Tuesday. Mrs Penfold will be working with us on a Tuesday.
During the school closure period, the adults working in Panda Class will be Miss Jackson (working remotely from home) and then Miss Burchfield and Mrs Burden working in school. Miss Peters will be covering a period of the afternoon and Mr Head will be starting from week 2.
As you are already aware, our time in Panda Class is split into teacher directed activities and child initiated activities. The adult led time is relatively short as this enables the children to use the skills they have learnt in their own "Choosing time" which is longer. The adults will also set up some activities during child initiated time to allow the children to showcase their new skills.
Home Learning will follow a similar pattern. I will provide some videos and activities for the children to engage with. I will then provide some ideas for what your child can do or some activities you can set up for your child to engage with independently.
Home Learning activities will be set daily on Tapestry. Through the Tapestry website, you will also have access to documents which can be downloaded for your child to use in their learning.

When the children return to school, our PE day will be a Monday.
