And ‘sew’ to Year 4….(Spring 2)

Year 4 have been having fun learning how to sew and join two pieces of fabric together. They chose their fabric, then their design and finally made a prototype.

What are you doing online?

What are doing online that can have an impact on your family? Never leave your location based services enabled on social media sites.

Owls – from Night Owls

    Good morning everyone. What a fabulous morning Yrs 3, 4 & 5 have had. They were treated to some real live owls. What was so exciting was that they actually did some flying, too. They learned a little about owls themselves, such as why they have to turn their heads (because their eyes are […]
