Home Learning - Year 3

Summer Term 2

 

Hello Year 3,

 

We have finally made it! The last week of the school year, and hasn't it flown by? Well done for your hard work this year - times have been extremely challenging but you have responded to these challenges with great resilience - well done to you all (including grown-ups smiley).

 

This weeks learning is a mixture of set work and free time to discover new things. There are a few videos to watch, a final round of learning in maths, reading and writing, and some time to explore and discover. Remember, this week we will be speaking to all of you online so look our for your time slot to meet your current year 3 adults, and also meet your new adults in year 4 smiley

 

New activities for the week have been added below.

 

Stay safe and have fun!

Thank you to everyone who has already shared their pictures and videos with us by sending them to the year group email address (Y3@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk) – it has been so lovely to see all the different skills you have been using at home. You can see these here. Please do keep sending us your pictures and videos so that we can add them to our gallery.
