As part of social action, year 3 have made donations to the community larder during Harvest Festival. We have also thought of other ways to give that do not cost money, such as, saying hello, smiling, waving, please and thank you, friendship and listening to others. 

Fantastic day with Sunita learning about Hindu stories, dancing and art.


Year 3 had an enjoyable day at the Collection Museum learning about the Romans and the legacy they left in Lincoln.
