Welcome to Class 3

The teachers in Class 3 are Mrs Gibson Monday to Thursday and Mrs Wilkinson on Friday.  

If you have any questions, queries or need to discuss anything please contact one of the teachers on the following email addresses: lgibson@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk or ewilkinson@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk 

 

 

Home Learning Update 

Our weekly timetable has been updated and can be found below. The blue boxes show the times and subjects that are being taught via Teams.  These lessons will be recorded and can be found on Teams if you are unable to attend at the set time. 

The White box shows the lesson which will not be a live lesson but work can still be found on the class page and should still be completed.

 

We are intending to set some activities for the children that do not involve technology or screen time. 

  • Tuesday afternoon will be 'Active Tuesday's' (yellow box) Children should take part in physical or more active activities.  
  • Wednesday - all day except for Guided Reading, will be 'Wellbeing Wednesday's (green boxes)
  • Friday afternoon will be 'Arts and Crafts' (pink box)

 

Worksheets, activities and resources will be put onto this class page every day.  You can print off the activities if you wish but all you will really need is paper and a pencil.  

 

We would love to see the work you do so please take photos and email them to either Mrs Gibson (lgibson@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk) or Mrs Wilkinson (ewilkinson@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk).

 

If you are finding any of the work set too challenging then please refer to the SEND page where you will find activities that may be more appropriate.
