We worked with a partner to carefully draw around our hands. We used precision tools to cut around the shape we […]
We had our class visit on Wednesday, exploring a local interest site and investigating the local physical and man-made features in the land. Adults wore masks and we took our sanitisers along (in our coat pockets). We avoided touching any gates, etc. unnecessarily, to keep ourselves safe. We were lucky with the weather and had […]

F1 have been practising our ICT skills by using digital cameras to take pictures of our environment and our friends!
