The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 

In year 3 we have been celebrating the 70 year reign of Her Majesty the Queen all week.

Monday, we had our own 'Night at the Proms'. Year 3 had the 90's and sang 'I'll be there for you' by the Rembrandts. 

Tuesday, we invited year 3's parents and carers to come in for a craft day whereby we made crowns! 

Wednesday, we wrote letters to the Queen to congratulate her on her Platinum Jubilee.

Thursday, we had a whole school street party!!

Friday, we learned about the amazing achievements of the Queen and wrote down which ones we found most inspirational.

See how much fun we had below.... 

Our 'mini rainforests'

In curriculum we have been exploring all about rainforests and before half-term we even designed our own 'mini rainforest', focusing on the different layers and species that live there!

For homework, Year 3 were asked to use their designs to create their own 'mini rainforest'
