It was interesting to hear how different … Continue reading »

Cirp go on a leaf hunt

We laughed lots this morning as well as doing lots of good learning. It was so much fun watching the boys pretend to be television presenters. I thought it was funny when they were doing news reports about giant spiders to scare Miss Astle!

Some of the children thought it might be wire, some thought it was rope. We looked at the pictures and saw the basket was attached to the rope … Continue reading »
