In year 3 we have Mr Scott who will be delivering Active 30 for the children each day, as well as Miss Smith who will be teaching the class on Wednesday mornings.

The children can continue to use TT rockstars to practise their times tables. When the children have been reassessed on Accelerated reader we will start to send reading books home.
