Welcome to our new 2nd Class of 2017

Today we got to make some rice crispie buns (we used cornflakes instead). Such fun was had by all! The best part was licking the spoons and bowl after.

On Friday 9th June 2nd Class went for a day trip to the Glebe Gallery. We had a tour of Derek Hills house, saw all his paintings and ornaments from his travels around the World. We went for a magical walk through the gardens where we spotted loads of Fairy doors, heard the birds singing and sang ‘Circle of Friends’ around the oldest tree in the garden. Then we made a house for a mouse.  We finished off the day where we all made something out of clay. A great day had by all.
