Year 3 Class

Welcome to the Year 3 class page!

This week you have a selection of English, Maths, Art and History work to look at and we will be doing these in class too! Try to do the correct day’s English and Maths work if you are coming into school for some of the week. I have labelled them with the day I want them to be done on.

 

You can continue to email me about what you are getting up to, about the work I am setting and you can send me any photos too. It is so lovely to hear from you!  If you have any questions please contact me on our class email:

I will do my very best to get back to you as soon as I can. Looking forward to hearing from you! Don’t forget the transition Zoom meeting with Miss Bode and myself this Wednesday. You should have had the link emailed to you if you asked for it.

 

Keep safe! Ms Margerum xxxxxxx
