Remote Learning timetable
A message to all of our families.
We hope you have all had a good break over the Christmas holidays, despite everything being very different this year because of Covid-19. We wish everyone a much happier year in 2021, with the good news of the vaccine giving us all hope.
However, we know that there are still some difficult times ahead, during which we will continue working together to keep everyone as safe as possible. In Sheffield, that means carrying on following the guidance for Tier 3, including welcoming the children back to school tomorrow.
We know that there is lots in the media about concerns relating to the opening of schools this week and reloads this is unsettling for parents, but I hope you are reassured by the fact that lots of extra measures are still in place at Acres Hill to make sure children and staff can return as safely as possible. We know how much our children need
to be in school, so please feel confident to bring them tomorrow as planned.
Should the situation change for any reason, we will let you know as soon as possible.
Please feel free
to contact school with any questions or concerns.
We have had another really busy week in Y3!
In Maths we have continued our leanring around multiplication and division. We have been recapping some of the times tables we already know and building up our knowledge. In English we have been learning lots of different grammatical devices for us to use in our explanation texts about rocks such as expanded noun phrases with prepositional phrases, causal conjucntions and subordinating clauses. In Science we carrie out an investigation around friction to see which surface had the most friction.
