February was another busy month. Pupils  have been learning both indoors and outdoors with numeracy and Literacy.

We made some delicious savoury and sweet treats. 

Class 7 - January update

Pupils in Class 7 have been working hard with Literacy and Numeracy activities. We have been exploring Winter through messy play and art and using our outdoor space for learning. Unfortunately some of us have been sick with COVID-19 so our class, at times this month, has been smaller. We are hoping that everyone keeps well and looking forward to a full class again very soon.

We explored sensory play with Christmas pasta, completed Christmas tree threading, early writing activities as well as Christmas arts and crafts.  We had fun making decorations to sell at the Christmas Craic-er and enjoyed our festive Fridays when we wore our special Christmas jumpers. We enjoyed our lunch treat from Captain Cooks.
