Week nine (Monday 8th June) Tasks
Hello Year 3 - I hope you are all well and are still able to get outdoors for some fresh air. I've had some wonderful news that we all need to celebrate - Taylor's (and Morgan's) beautiful baby brother has been born! Congratulations and love to the Williams family!
If you are doing tasks in your Home Learning Book then please keep sending me photos of your brilliant work.
Over the next half term, please keep sending me messages through the Classroom or email. Don't forget to keep sending me photos of your learning at home - it's lovely to see how much you are all growing and how you are learning different skills.
Congratulations to Oskar who received the Home Learning Award last week.
I miss you more and more as each week passes! Love Mrs Thomas xx

You might want to collect more information about what is happening by following a variety of websites, including
