Classes 1 and 2 had a fantastic day at Rosemoor today. Despite the weather, we went rummaging through the woods on a mini-beast hunt. More photos and details to follow on Monday. Thank you to all of our helpers today!

Class 1 – Request a Selfie!

If they clip one of the cameras to their work, we will email it home to show you. This has encouraged some fantastic pieces of writing [...]
