Welcome back!

Pluto and Jupiter class have had a great start to the new year and term 3 especially with their first trip of the year to Tyntesfield. We all enjoyed learning about the Victorians while dressing up as servants and wealthy children. We also explored the amazing house to learn all about the lives of those who lived there. 

 

We would also like to thank all of those parents who came along to help. We could not have done it without you and we all (staff and children) enjoyed having you with us.
