Our children right across the school have practiced the different races and behaved beautifully whilst waiting for their turn. We've even been watching some of the older children for tips on each of the races!

We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
