Hooray! Today is the first day of summer. Or is it? Well it depends on which calendar you look at - the meteorological or the astronomical calendar. Most people would argue it isn't summer until the summer solstice on June 20th. What do you think? Check out the following website to explore further.
The teachers hope you've had a lovely break and have enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine. Can you believe this is our final half term of Year 3? Where has all the time gone?
After the holidays, Mrs Wray and Miss McLaughlan will be teaching small classes in school and will be very busy. If you have any urgent questions regarding home learning, please contact me, Mrs Lambert on firstname.lastname@example.org and will get back to you as soon as possible. I will be teaching in school on a Wednesday and Thursday but other than that, I will be checking my emails several times a day. You are still welcome to email Miss McLaughlan and Mrs Wray but you will need to give them a bit extra time to respond.
