Class 3 Transition Information
Welcome to Class 3's Transition Information Section!
Although it has been a very strange few months, it is now almost time for the Summer Holidays. The wonderful Year 2's will soon be Year 3's, my Year 3's will become grown-up Year 4's and my Year 4's will move on to Class 4 with Miss Morrell. Below, you can find lots of information and links to activities that may help to prepare your child for the changes.
Oxford Owl Transition Packs
Linked below are the Oxford Owl Transition Packs. These include lots of information about your child's new year group, including, a Y3, Y4 and Y5 overview, Reading and Maths information, and links to buy resources that your child may find useful. The packs also provide lots of free resources for your child to have a go at over the Summer Holidays.
