Topic

The children enjoyed our Scottish food tasting last week and we had a whole school showcase assembly on Friday afternoon where the children got to show the rest of the school some of their work. The class were excellent at saying our doric poem Pets! and we showed our art thistles and our cut out Loch Ness Monsters.
