Year 1

Week commencing 9.10.17

Year 1 had a super time at the library. We listened to some stories and then chose some books to take back to school to share with our class. 
We had a fantastic time on our first seasons day about autumn. We looked at seed dispersal, went bird watching, completed an eye-spy challenge and we made some bird feeders. We are looking forward to our next seasons day in the winter!
