Year three’s inspiring person for this year is Marie Curie. 

Marie Curie was known for her contributions to science and for the development of radium.


The children have enjoyed learning about Marie Curie’s life, discoveries, the Marie Curie charity and the meaning of the daffodil. The children have been busy creating their own daffodils which are displayed on our classroom door and learning facts about Marie’s life which they presented in collective worship to the rest of the school. We also have a display in the learning zone all about Marie Curie!
