Year 3 Falcons 2020 - 2021
We have an exciting, fun and engaging year ahead of us and we are looking forward to being apart of your child's learning journey. Please check in regularly to our blog to see some of the things we have been learning about.
At Abingdon Primary School we use a commucation app called Class Dojo. We use this to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.
Please contact me on Class dojo or at firstname.lastname@example.org

We will be learning Spanish using Languagenut.
At Abingdon we use Times Tables Rock Stars. Children are encouraged to play at home to improve their speed and scores. Certificates will be awarded for various achievements.
