Week 7 - wc 4 May 2020

Welcome Year 3 to Week 7!

We hope you are all well and are enjoying learning at home!

Continue your diary of all the different things you get up to whilst at home (pictures/drawings/writing). 

Please let us know what you are getting up to and are working on by emailing us at year3enquiries@theacademy.me. It’s lovely to see what the children are achieving at home.

Booklets do not have to be printed out - the children can write their answers in their exercise books that were sent home or on a piece of paper. The work sent doesn’t have to be all completed, only complete what you can it is important to spend time as a family and playing too.

Reading 

Create a reading diary of the books you have read. Write about what you like about the book, what are your favourite characters/parts? Who would you recommend it to?

There are lots of books being read by famous people online for example by David Walliams have a look- it’s great to read/listen to books in lots of different ways!

Maths
