Year 3 Spring 1 Curriculum Snapshot

“We have really enjoyed writing a non-chronological report and reading the Iron Man. We really loved making and painting our own monsters. The trip to Raymond Brown was great because our coach was weighed with us on it (we weighed the same as two elephants) and we found out all about where our recycling goes. We also so found you have to wear special clothing when at a recycling centre.”
