Over the past month we have been very busy in 1st class. We went on a summer walk, where we saw different signs of summer. We also had a drama workshop on the theme of animals in the jungle which we really enjoyed. We did experiments testing different objects around the room to see if they float or sink. Finally, we went on a teddy bears picnic with 2nd class to Cherryfield Park. The weather was lovely and we had a great day!
