Welcome to The Daring Dragons Class!

Mr Morgan and Mrs Dand are really excited to be teaching Year 3 and have a fantastic year full of interesting topics planned! We are currently looking at the topic of 'The Angry Earth' where children will be looking at exploring different volcanoes and earthquakes from around the world and how they are constructed.
