Year 3 English

Dear Year 3 Children, Parents and Carers,

Here you will find a range of activities for English, Spelling and Grammar.

Each week we will add a new unit of work for you to complete. A lot of the tasks require you to follow links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that only and are keeping safe online. 

Enjoy the activities and units of work and we look forward to hearing how you got on!
