20th November 2015
Well I am sure that those of you who came to visit the ‘Egyptian Museum’ in Class 3 this week would join me in praising the Children, Miss King and Mrs Lockwood for creating such a wonderful showcase of their learning. It is clear that this has been a really powerful and exciting topic for Class 3 and I am thrilled they got to share with you the amazing quality of their work. A triumph Class 3, Well done!
