Year 3 SG work from home

 

Hello everyone,

 

Here are some activities for you to work on whilst school is closed. Try to complete a few each day as well as reading lots and continuing to practise your times tables. If you were in school during the last week before our closure, you will also have taken home your handwriting book so keep practising those joins too!

 

I will update the activities on a Sunday so that you will have new ones to try each week.

Everyone in year 3 also has login details for Showbie. On here, you can send me any work that you have completed if you would like to. If you do not have your login details, please email me sgrimsdell@heathfields.derbyshire.sch.uk and I will send them to you. 

 

I look forward to hearing about your learning and seeing you all again very soon!

 

Keep in touch and keep smiling!
