Print Museum Tour:
On Friday, 19th May, we had a fantastic day at the Print Museum. The children really enjoyed the bus trip and they had lots of fun engaging on the tour. They learned a lot of History on printing which connected to our S.E.S.E subjects. They got to design and print their own hats and posters.

World Book Day was on the 2nd of March. We had lots of fun reading and listening to books. We designed book marks and our own book covers. We listened and sang to songs on World Book Day.
