Colour Run 2022

We have been learning about garden birds. We built a bird hide in our classroom so that we could watch the birds visiting our P1 garden. We recorded the birds we saw on our tick sheet. We even saw a chaffinch going into our bird box. We used word mats to help us write sentences about our favourite birds. Check out the fantastic models, nests and art work we created.

World Book Day. We had great fun at our bedtime story party. We came dressed in our pyjamas and so did the teachers! We shared our favourite stories with the class and enjoyed delicious hot chocolate with mallows on top. It was yummy 😋
