Year 5 have had a fantastic week this week. We have been very lucky to have shared in a range of activities of part of Mental Health Awareness Week. They have particularly enjoyed the story tellers sessions and making their shadow puppets.

Willow also had a session with Mr Trotter on Philosophy – the session posed some interesting questions around stealing and the kind of life they’d like to lead in the future.

Using part to build a visual story.
