W.C. 26th February
The boys and girls have been working so hard on their money skills this term and it was time to put their skills to the test at ‘The Burrow Store’. This was such a fun activity and everyone enjoyed eating the treats that they had ‘bought’. This week we also worked hard at improving our handwriting skills, we learnt about the Easter Story and we completed Spring themed numeracy activities. We also did a fun experiment involving the effect of soap on germs. It was very interesting. Another great week :)
