Dear Y3 Parents,
We have sent home with the children a pack of English and Maths activities if you would like to practise some of the skills we have learnt. If your child finds an activity tricky, please do not worry as we will be revisiting these in the coming months.
If you would like to work on alternative activities that is completely fine and encouraged.
