Vehicles

We enjoyed making our Moving Vehicles using axles and wheels. Then we wrote a set of instructions to explain how we made them. I wonder if you could try to make a moving vehicle?


Well Being Day

On Thursday 24th November, we celebrated ‘Well Being Day’. Year groups carried out various activities throughout the day. Some of us had the opportunity to take part in peer massage- this was very relaxing! Others participated in Lego Therapy, which we loved! One class even had a karaoke session- this made us feel GREAT! Thank you Mrs Porter for our wonderful yoga session. It was a relaxing and lovely day at Mersey Park. We loved coming into school in our comfy slippers!
