Welcome to Year 3!


Lost City - April 2021


We have been inspired this week by stories of a lost city. We explored the lost city and found abandoned buildings like temples. In drama we created these buildings and left coded messages for future visitors to find, explaining why the lost city had been abandoned. Some amazing writing and drama this week from Year 3!
