Children In Need

Year 3 had fun dressing up in their pyjamas for the day and enjoyed doing lots of activities related to Children In Need.


In class the children watched a video about Stonehenge and had to write down information they thought was important about Stonehenge. They then used the computer to access 'purple mash' and created pictures of Stonehenge. They then had to type one fact they had learnt about Stonehenge.
