We have had a fantastic first few weeks in Year3, but our attendance was at the bottom of the school. Oh dear! We are going to try our best to improve our attendance and come to school every day.
Our reading area is incredible because its a castle with a moat and a draw bridge. We can go in there to read, roleplay and relax.
We invite you to have a look and see for yourselves.
