In 3N, we had a performance poetry lesson. We turned it into a competition and the best group got to put their performance onto the website. This is the winning performance and I think it is fantastic!

During the second week back, year 3 will be creating their own ‘underwater scene’ as part of their Geography lessons. A picture of a completed one can be seen below. Please could we ask that children bring in an empty shoe box with their name on it as soon as possible, thank you. Children are also going to need an empty pringles tube by the 27th April but more details to follow.
