Learning at Home

School Closure-Remote learning 20/21

Spring 2021

Dear Class 3,

Here’s a quick guide to explain what to do in different circumstances, if you are not at school.

Everyone is at school, but I have to self-isolate. I feel well enough to work:

Access the ‘self-isolating learning at home information’ uploaded at the bottom of this page and complete the work detailed in it.

I am self-isolating because I am not well:

You are ill, so rest and recover as you would normally. Get well soon and please make sure your adult has contacted school to let us know what is happening.

The whole school or KS2 bubble is closed:

Follow the suggested weekly timetables uploaded below which make reference to lessons on the  Oak National Academy, your Learning at Home book and the resources uploaded at the bottom of this page.  Your parents can read the accompanying ‘school or KS2 closure bubble information’ uploaded below for any further information about this work. 

I will leave each week's timetable on this page as the lessons build upon one another.  

I would love to see your work so please send it by emailing a quick photo of it to or through TEAMS. 

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Elliott

Times Tables

Times tables continue to be a very difficult area for children of this age.  By the end of Year 3, children need to know 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 times tables. By the end of Year 4 this extends to include all of the tables. If they do not know all of their times tables by this time, they will not be at age-related expectations.

The children should practise their tables at home regularly.
