We were glad to see all the boys come back to school in time for St Davids day and World book day this week (we looked at The Very Hungry Caterpillar), this has tied in nicely with our new topic for this half term - All things Welsh. You will have seen through SeeSaw a lot of what we have been doing this week but here are some more pictures of our new display board the boys have helped create and what we have been up to. Our focus next week is on Welsh places.
We enjoyed space week so much we decided to extend it for 3 more days of our last week! We created our very own spaceships complete with our own aliens, we made aliens out of shapes and even had time to create our own bottle rockets to use with an experiment!
