Hi Year 3

This is the last week of home learning before the summer holidays begin! You deserve a rest from all the work that you've been completing at home. I'm very proud of all your achievements - you've been fantastic at such an uncertain time. While I am sad that we've spent the last few months apart, I enjoyed our time together in year 2 & 3. We created lots of memories and had lots of fun times!
