Year 3

Welcome to the Thunder Three's class page!

I am so impressed with how the children have settled back in to their learning after half term!

I look forward to catching up with you at Parents Evening, next week on Wednesday 8th November and Thursday 9th November.


I have added in some links below to help support the children's learning at home. I hope you find them useful, if you have any queries, please feel free to let me know.

Below are some useful links for you to use to support your child's learning at home.
