Word Puzzle

Well done to all the class for our outside day.  Our visitors in the morning were impressed by the children's enthusiasm with the bulb planting.  I was really pleased with the brilliant pieces of art (inspired by Andy Goldsworthy) that the children produced in the afternoon.

These questions should give you a flavour of the learning we will be doing in class.
