Hi year 3!

You will be sent a daily email from enquiries with the UCPS YouTube videos for each day’s learning. If you have any questions during this period, please email the usual enquiries@universityprimaryschool.org.uk and we will answer these questions in separate blog posts (to avoid answering similar questions multiple times).

In addition, this blog page will be updated daily with further learning resources such as .pdf documents or links to support the videos.  These could be printed, but also the activities can be done directly into your red learning journals.

Also, here is a letter from Dr Biddulph: Dr Biddulph Letter
