What a fantastic show we did! We had a fantastic time. We performed beautifully in front of the school and parents and carers. The children have worked hard for these performances and we are very proud of them all.
This Friday we have continued to work singing in Scots with Sarah. Some of the children led the group with their beautiful singing.
We also have been exploring how batteries work and we have created a basic circuit at skills time.
