Hello Year 3!
Hope you and your families are all well and staying safe!

We thought it would be nice if you could reflect on your year 3 memories by completing some of the activities on our last learning grid. We can't wait to spend some time with you in September.
Have a lovely summer! Stay smiling and be good.
