Year 3 enjoyed a yoga taster session.  We all enjoyed stretching our bodies and relaxing our minds.  The children were encouraged to be mindful in the session and not let their minds wander to others things.  What an amazing afternoon.

Tree Survey. We walked around our School grounds with a tree identification chart. When we returned to the classroom we used our data to create bar charts and pictograms.

In Science we are learning about what plants need to flourish. We went on a discovery walk around the School grounds looking for locations where plants were growing and where they were not.

Each class learned about who they are named after and presented their research to the rest of the school through song, poetry and performance.
