Year 3 – Monday 11th May 2020

Welcome back everyone.

We hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the lovely hot weather.

We will be updating the blog with English, Maths and wider curriculum tasks every day at 9am.

If you haven’t finished all of the work in your learning packs which we sent home then feel free to continue with these.

Don’t forget, we don’t expect you to be doing school work all day, every day!

It’s important to take regular breaks, get outside and stay healthy (especially if the sunshine continues).

If you can’t get outside, Joe Wicks is still doing his Youtube P.E. lessons on his Youtube channel every morning at 9am.

(Miss Lindop hasn’t missed a single session since Joe began back in March)

Find them here:

Remember you can also email any pictures of your work or questions you might have to us on

We look forward to seeing your responses throughout the week.

Mrs Beckwith, Miss Lindop, Miss Barden and Miss Willmer.

Here are today’s tasks:
