Good morning Year 3, another week of home learning.
To start you off this week, we have some easy grid method calculations. We have completed lots of these in school so you should be fabulous at them!
Also, I will be setting you a drawing challenge each day. Each day I will give you a step-by-step guide to draw an endangered animal. When you have drawn it, see if you can find out these things:
How big are they?
Where do they live?
What do they eat?
Look forward to seeing all your hard work!
