Dear Parents and Carers,

This page will be used to support home learning for Year 3 children if schools are instructed to close. 

If you and your family are self-isolating hopefully you will already have your child's home learning pack. If not please contact us and we will endeavour to get this to you.

Your child can make a start on some of the challenges within the pack but if you would like an update on what we have been learning within school that day please message me via class dojo where I can send photographs and videos to support home learning.

In the event of school closing to all this page will be updated daily.

Thank you for your continued support during this tricky time.


The home learning tasks can be found in the documents section on the right.
