Welcome to Year 3!
In year 3 this year is Miss Jennings and Ms Catana.
In Year 3 this term our topic will be How To Train Your Dragon! We will be learning all about The Vikings and also looking at the movie and book too. We are very excited to be guiding your children through their learning journey, and look forward to hearing and developing their fantastic knowledge and ideas!
We have been enjoying finding out lots of facts about the History of the Vikings and now we are moving on to learning some more about the story of How to Train Your Dragon.
