Year 3 Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 3! I hope that you have all had a good summer break.

Useful information
Homework will be given out during the first week of each half term. Each Friday, the children will hand in their books to show the work they have done at home, or a note from parents to explain what they are working on. All the compulsory homework is expected in by the last day of the half term. Spellings are given out on a Monday for a spelling test the following Monday. Year 3 PE is on a Thursday.
