Welcome to Year 3
Our classes are called Corbett and Brunel after inspirational people who have had BIG ideas!
We have chosen Edward James Corbett, a British-Indian tracker and hunter turned conservationist, who played a key role in identifying and supporting the endangered Bengal tiger. He showed that he could change for the better and helped to save the species. We also chose Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the ingenious mechanical and civil engineer who was one of the greatest figures of the industrial revolution.
In Year 3, we love our learning and work extremely hard.
