We started off the Spring term with a Bronze Age theme day. We completed 4 activities during the day- making brooches, making roundhouses, weaving and making a clay pot. We had a great day being creative and finding out about our new topic.

We had great fun in Forest School this half term. We built dens, made fairy fires, used compasses to give directions, toasted marshmallows and of course played various versions of ‘hide and seek’.
During Spring 1 we worked on our gymnastics skills in our PE lessons. We used different apparatus, ways of travelling and balances to put together a routine in pairs.
