Year 3-4 have been blending and printing colours are they decorate their hero puppets.

Year 3-4 have had a Christmassy enrichment. It's nearly December right?

Year 3-4 have prepared their healthy picnic using a variety of ingredients in DT this morning.

Year 3-4 have created a design criteria for the their healthy picnic today:
