It even has a map that will help us learn about dragons. Musa 3J In Year 3 we found […]
Year 3 had a fantastic learning experience on our recent trip to Worcester Cathedral! We have been learning what it is a like to be a Christian in Britain today so we decided to take our learning outside the classroom to explore the questions we had been asking our teachers. During our trip, we had a tour of the Cathedral and learnt all about the different signs and symbols of Christianity and why they are important today.

Year 3 have been extremely busy so far this half term exploring the continent of Europe. We have been receiving emails from different families asking us to book holidays on their behalf. We are now learning the necessary skills to become successful travel agents. You will find lots of maps and atlases in our classrooms which are helping us to gain the knowledge that we need to make sure that families will be happy with their holiday destinations.
