Hello Year 3,
Well done for all of your hard work last week. It was great to be in contact with lots of you and to hear that you are enjoying your work at home. I hope that the weather will get a bit better this week so that you can get chance to go outside a bit more. I hope you are ready for a brand new week of home learning. Please remember to email me if you have any questions about any of the work and keep sending me photos of the fabulous things that you are up to at home!
Keep smiling Year 3!

Reading – JK Rowling’s new children’s book
JK Rowling (the author of the Harry Potter novels) is releasing her new children’s book, The Ickabog, chapter by chapter over the next 7 weeks.
The most exciting part is that JK Rowling would like you to illustrate her new fairy tale story. Every day, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw. You can enter the official competition being run by her publishers, for the chance to have your artwork included in a printed version of the book due out later this year. She will be giving suggestions as to what to draw as you go along, but you should let your imagination run wild.
The book can be found here: https://www.theickabog.com/home/

Music – Recorders
A message from Mrs Meek - I hope those of you who have been learning to play the recorder with me have been able to do a bit of practising. Perhaps you could spend the next couple of weeks rehearsing a piece of music and then ask someone to film you giving a performance to some members of your family. I would love to see them. As we shall not be able to perform to the rest of the school and your parents like we did last year, anyone who sends a video will earn their gold performance belt for their recorder. We can have a presentation session once you are back in school. Keep playing! 🎶
Complete the BBC Bitesize French lesson on how to talk about the clothes you wear and the food you eat. You can access the lesson here:
