Roald Dahl day


The children enjoyed learning about Roald Dahl and in particular enjoyed learning about the story of The BFG. They each created a dream catcher and wrote about some very imaginative dreams.

From our vegetable patch to soup...


Since Easter the children have loved looking after the vegetables and plants growing outside and have watered them regularly. Now the weather is turning colder, the vegetables have been picked and the children all helped to make some homemade vegetable soup. They even tried it for an afternoon snack.
