Update from 3RR

Hi all, it’s been a very busy few weeks in 3RR since returning from the half term break. The class enjoyed Art Week on our first week back (19th-23rd February) and every class in school was given the task of creating a display board – our topic was ‘Documentaries’! The children decided to make a Blue Planet themed display and we think it is the best in school – even if we say so ourselves!

We have also celebrated World Book Day and staff and children spent the day dressed as their favourite characters and shared our favourite stories with each other!

Today (Friday 9th March) KS4 held a Mother’s Day sale and the children enjoyed spending their money on lovely gifts for their mothers and carers; we’ve also had fun making cards to give out on Sunday!

 

We hope everyone enjoyed the snow days’ last week and has finally managed to thaw out after all the cold weather. We’re glad to see the back of ‘The Beast from the East’ and to be back to normal finally.

 

Have a lovely weekend from the 3RR team!
