Cedar Class - Y3

WELCOME TO CEDAR CLASS!

    We are all working hard and having fun with our teachers -  

               Mrs Hammond, Mrs Jenner-Dyer (on Fridays) and Mrs Harrod.

 

This half term we shall finish creating documentaries to explain how orangutans will become extinct in 20 years if we do not act now. We are therefore holding a fund raising afternoon on Thursday 25th April 2019, to raise money for the Samboja Lestari Orangutan Sanctuary in Borneo, which is part of the BOS Foundation. We shall be wearing brown and orange; completing our sponsored events and we shall be organising a bring and buy sale.

 

Now, sit back and watch our documentaries - and then see if you want to help us save orang-utans! Act now - or you'll be sorry!!!
