Sycamore (Year 3)

Sycamore Class 2019

Sycamore Class is our Year 3 class, for children aged between 7 and 8.

 

Hello Sycamore Class - I am your teacher, Mrs Cresswell. I will be setting your work online through Class Dojo each week, and I really enjoy seeing what you are learning at home. 

Mrs Dunford and Mrs Ptaszek are supporting our learning as the class Teaching Assistants.

 

This week's home learning tasks will be available to download below, and through the Class Dojo site. You need to send pictures of your work back to me through Class Dojo, so if you do not have a login yet, or you have any questions, please email sycamore@grove.oxon.sch.uk .
