World Book Day Celebration
Take a look at this compilation of pictures from World Book Day which was on 3rd March. Lots of fun was had and lots of books read! This year we had a focus on maths in stories. Each class discovered maths within their chosen book. Maths can be an abstract subject but using a book helps to bring it to life and make it seem "real" and more accessible for everyone!
Our resident artist Nicola has also been painting in the library. Can you spot the characters?
Mental Health Week 2.2.21

Chinese New Year 2.2.21

Tigers have been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso and then trying to paint in his style.

This Tiger has been enjoying the small glimpses of sunshine, to do some outdoor PE.
Balancing on one leg.... It's always a challenge!
It requires a lot of skill.
