Ice Palace Performance by 3H

The children in Class 3H have been working on their winter story, Ice Palace, by Robert Swindells.  They created a dramatic choral performance and would like to share their hard work with you. 

Brougham Castle Visit

As part of our Penrith topic, the Year 3 children visited Brougham Castle. We learnt about the different defence features and the history of the castle.


It was a glorious day and we had a fantastic time!


Thank you to all of our parent helpers that made the trip possible and the fantastic staff at the information based at the castle.
