Autumn Term

 

Year 3 have started the year by exploring the story of 'Grendel, A Cautionary Tale About Chocolate'. The children had the opportunity to create their own versions of the Grendel story by making books. We have also taken the children back to the Triassic period where they have started to learn about dinosaurs. Time lines have been created and we are currently exploring dinosaur habitats.
