Meanwhile, our Year 5/6 children have been debating whether the Battle of Britain was a turning point, Year 3/4 have been experimenting with bones and Year R have visited the Moon! Our Eco-Committee have also been busy tidying up our Spiritual Garden. Thank you to our green-fingered parent volunteers, too!
