To mark remembrance day, Y6 drew poppies and used the watercolours to reflect the sombre and reflective mood of the day. They then outlined their designs to make them stand out and evaluated their work effectively.
Y6 had an absolutely fantastic day at Walby Farm Park. We explored the new wooden fort and then after lunch enjoyed time in the indoor play barn. We conquered lots of our fears on the giant red slide!
