Welcome to Year 3’s class blog! This is where we will be sharing some of our class work, pictures, activities and upcoming class events.

Our class blog will provide our children with a real audience and purpose for writing. Sometimes we might have a writing challenge or a reading challenge on the blog. You might even win a prize for your efforts.

Please feel free to comment and give us feedback on any of our posts. Your comments will be monitored before going live and then will  be shared with the children.

Thank you for your support, enjoy!

Class music…

This is the music that we sometimes use in our English lessons to help us concentrate on our writing.

It is Nuvole Bianchi by Ludovico Einaudi. Please feel free to watch it and share it with others! It is a very calming and relaxing piece of music.
