Foundation - PHSE and MUSIC
Today is an opportunity for us all to get together and share our news, ask questions about our work or the world around us and just chat. I would like to think about positive things. At half term I had lots of chances to go out and walk with my family and the big change I noticed were some flowers growing - also at last we had a little more sunshine and a little less rain - Spring is here . We also had time to make our own pancakes on Pancake Day - I would like to hear what you did at half term
