Welcome to the Year 3 class page. There will be regular updates and revision sites for you to try while you are at home. Remember you have been working really hard to challenge yourselves so you need to continue to do that! Keep busy!
Use the spellings given in the revision pack this week and put them into sentences. Write different sentence forms (questions, commands and statements) and remember to use the correct punctuation. You also need to write a range of sentences ie simple sentences, extended sentences with conjunctions. Use different sentence starters; fronted adverbial, subordinating clause.
