Year 3

2022-23

November

The children really loved visiting the library…so many books, arts and crafts, the internet (you can do your homework there!), friendly staff and it is cosy and warm. Please take your child to this fantastic free facility or the one closest to you. The children were brilliant at explaining the benefits of reading and know it is such an enjoyable activity. 

The children had a fantastic learning experience in the Museum of London. They examined artifacts from the Stone Age, read facts about them and also learnt about archaeology related to the Stone Age through a highly informative workshop. Well done Year 3.
