We had great fun on our sponsored bike ride! We are raising funds for our outdoor area. Thank you for all of your generous contributions. Look out for our new additions to the outdoor area coming soon.
We were lucky enough to meet some animal visitors this week. First, the chicks from Year Two came to our classroom then Miss Gill brought in her tortoise Tank.
We have been thinking about how to take care of the things in God's world so this was a lovely way for us to talk about how we can look after animals.
Here is the Meet the Teacher powerpoint.
