Congratulations to our new School Councillors. Both girls are super efficient and are doing an excellent job!
Welcome to Year 3
We would like to share some of the exciting things we have been learning about.
As our topic, we have been finding out lots of facts about the tropical rainforests around the world. We can tell you why it's always hot and rainy there, and we could tell you some facts about some of the most deadliest creatures in the world that live there! Did you know, there is a frog that lives in the rainforest and even though it's beautifully coloured and only the size of your thumb, it could kill up to 20 people? Amazing!
We are looking forward to experiencing the rainforest climate when we visit Tropical World on our class trip. Let's hope there are no strange looking frogs lurking amongst the trees...

Book Sharing Day
Everyone in school was asked to bring in their favourite book, or a book they had received as a Christmas present, and to share it with someone else. We had a reading afternoon where the children were mixed into different classes and their shared reading could begin!
Our main topic this term is ancient Egypt. We have been so impressed with your wonderful pieces of homework to support this topic. Here are a few examples:
As part of our Ancient Egypt topic, we learnt about the mummification process and decided to have a go at the wrapping stage!
