We have had a busy time learning all about farming this week. We have researched how windmills work and compared old fashioned and modern windmills. The children have really enjoyed their role play time in the farm shop and have written their own signs and shopping lists. This week we are making maps of farms and writing directions.
PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
Have a fabulous week!
