Year 3

Miss Kang and Mrs Lee

Welcome to Year 3. Our teachers are Miss Kang and Mrs Lee. We are always working hard and have had lots of fun in our lessons this year.

In History we are learning about the Great Fire of Gateshead. We will be investigating this historical event by visiting the site where it happened and using this information to find out about the people involved in this event. We will then apply our knowledge from our history lessons into Art, where we will be creating our very own piece of art based on the fire.
