Another fantastic week in year 3. The children have settled back in to school life well and all come in with big smiles!

Our first two days back at school have been fantastic. We have played lots of welcome back games, recapped our rules and learnt some new outdoor games too. (We have also been washing our hands a lot!) Our work this week and next week is based on the book ‘After the Fall’ - it is about what happens to Humpty Dumpty after his great fall. We worked in two teams to build tall ladders for Humpty Dumpty to climb back up the wall. We also wrote targets for the first half term.
