The last 3 days

The children in 5D have had a great last three days. Most of them enjoyed three days at Robinwood, whilst those who stayed in school took part in some great arts and crafts activities.

Please leave me a comment below telling me what you’ve been up to over the last three days, what you enjoyed most and what you’ve learned about yourself!
