The week commencing Monday 20th January 2020 the children of Year 3/4 will be having a 'friendship challenge.' where if they play with someone new they get a dojo. 

Today Year 3/4 learnt that we have a responsibility to protect some habitats including our Forest school. So we did a litter pick to help remove anything that could damage the habitat.

As part of our Traders and Raiders topic, Year 3-4 have been using atlases to identify which countries in Europe the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Scots invaded from.
