​Welcome to Year 3   ​

​Miss Fothergill and Mr​s Willcox


All home learning will be posted into the below table. I will either be posting links to a website, for example, the Oak Academy, or I will be creating videos myself. None of the activities will require a printer, only writing equipment. I will post a daily overview detailing the work for the children.

Our topic this half term is the Stone Age.
