Hi Y3

How are you all? I hope you are all staying safe?

I 've been sent some pictures of the work you are completing at home. Thank you!

There have been between 4 and 8 of you in school and we are doing the same tasks as you, but it has been very quiet too.                                                                                I wonder is it because the noisy ones are at home?  

Did you go out in the snow? We had a snowball fight! We also did some cosmic yoga for PE too. 

Love Mrs A xxx

Eesa shared what he’s been up to over the holidays. He has been enjoying drawing and reading. He loves Harry Potter and enjoys the Goosebumps books by R.L Stine.

Good for you Eesa x

Resources Sorting

I have been sorting out some new resources for us. Charlie is helping, but only so he can get to play on his X-box!                    Can you see that Trigger is not helping at all? In fact Trigger is only happy when he is snoring on my lap...

We have been fascinated about things to do with fire and fireworks because of The Firework Maker's Daughter. Mr Allport used to be an RAF firefighter, so we asked him LOTS of questions.
