When we were in year 5
These are some of the wonderful things we did in year 3.
We had a very exciting day, filled with fun and new learning when we were visited by Portals to the Past who taught us more about the Egyptians. April thought the best bit was dressing up, whilst Will said “The Egyptian dancing was really funny.”
|Our information writing
was about different
rain forest creatures.
|Our class is like a jigsaw puzzle. When we are altogether,
the puzzle is complete. When just one of us is missing, the puzzle is incomplete.
We always work together to do our best and we always
work best when we are together.
