Latest Topic - SPACE.

We are having great fun this term learning all about the wonders of Space.

In the first week, we have learnt the order of the planets in our Solar System.  To aid in this, not only do we have each planet in class hanging from the ceiling, but we also decided to draw the Solar System, using pastels.

The results were fantastic, and will soon be up on display.


All hard at work, but still finding time for big smiles.


It appears more colour ended up on the boys instead of their work.


All Smiles here, with some great pieces of work as well.
