Year Three

Hello Year 3!

It's the final countdown! The final week of term!

We're going to miss you all terribly, but we know what an amazing time you're going to have in Year 4. Plus, we'll still see you around at school in September (or may even see you out and about during the holidays).

We've got some last little bits of work to see you through for the end of term, all linked below, and we've got some fun summer activities if you're looking for something to do (fun things only - not work) at home. Click here to see them!

We want to wish you a fabulous holiday! Obviously we're still available on email until the end of term and will be again closer to September if you did want to touch base. Our email addresses are:
puffins@southmead.devon.sch.uk and curlew@southmead.devon.sch.uk

For now, farewell! We think Olaf's video below says it best... Just click the black square below to make the video play!

With our very best wishes,

Miss Williams, Miss Brooks and Mrs Priddis
