Happy Monday lovely year 3 children. Hope your keeping safe and working hard :) 

Below is one of our favourite songs that I know you will be singing and dancing to at this moment. I will add some more songs during the next few weeks.

I'm adding this weeks home project with some websites that you can use to help with your learning. Remember to use a pencil for your maths and if you have a pen licence, use a pen for your writing.

Enjoy and keep smiling.
