Welcome to Gophers! Year 3 is the first year of Key Stage 2 and we encourage children to enjoy and embrace every learning opportunity. The highlights of the year include our seaside trip, where we get to explore the Jurassic coast, discovering the different Gods through Ancient Greek myths and find out how volcanos are formed. We can't wait for you to join us. By Miss Bobbett
