Hello Class 3! 

We hope you and your family are all safe and well at home.

Eid Mubarak! 

Have a lovely 2 week rest from school work now.

However, if you get bored, you can still try any of the English, maths and topic work below...

Some might be online games and some might be work that can be completed in your home exercise books.

Try and set out your work neatly like you would do in school, for example, starting with the date and title.

Have fun!

Mrs Lok & Mrs McGrath

Please email us with any questions or to show us some of your wonderful work!
