You've all been busy with the 'Around the World' Project.  I'm impressed with all the super work that has been sent in.  Remember, you can do the tasks in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have time. 


Let's join Mrs Acheson for Collective Worship.
Look on the News Page for this picture, to join in.
                                                                     
Don't forget to send your friendship recipes, or your ideas for a friendship board game, to Mrs Acheson.
