Week Beginning 1st March 2021


Hello Year 3,

I hope that you had a lovely half term break and you were able to have a rest and spend some time with your families. I was so impressed with the effort and enthusiasm that you showed last half term, well done! I know that learning from home can be tricky for you and your grown ups so please do what you can, when you can. We will continue with our Zoom calls and so I will look forward to seeing you throughout the week. 

Our new topic this half term is 'Merseyside'. This is a great topic because we get to learn about our local area, I hope that you will enjoy it.

Our English focus this week is character descriptons as we will be celebrating 'World Book Day'. In Maths you will be focusing on multiplying and dividing by 8.  Don't forget to logon to 'imoves' where I have set a variery of exercises. There will be a variety of other subjects that you will learn throughout the week too. 

Enjoy your learning, 

Miss Dodd smiley
