Year 3

Mrs MacCabe and Miss Gillespie

Welcome to Year 3! The teachers in Year 3 are Mrs MacCabe and Miss Gillespie. In Year 3, we always try our best and love to discover new things! This term in topic, we are learning about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age and can’t wait to go on our class trip to the Great North Museum. We are going to the Great North Museum to explore the artefacts and to take part in a prehistory workshop. In Art and Design we are going to be putting our Stone Age knowledge to the test and we are going to make our own Stone Age weapons. What an exciting term ahead!
