Summer Holidays


We would like to share some of the exciting things we did during the holidays before joining Year 2. Our sunflowers have been busy growing and now have huge fllowers on them. Some of our children enjoyed taking part in the local libraries Summer Reading Challenge becoming 'Wild World Heroes' and earning a certificate and medal for their reading efforts. We even had a class member who is a keen biologist growing butterflies and caring for hedgehogs.
