We have made posters and attached a map below so that all our families and friends can benefit from the wonderful free fruit that is being grown for our community in Windermere.

Our Easter Egg Hunt

We have spent the last couple of weeks designing and making plant pots. We used the bottom part of a plastic bottle to make our plant pot. First of all we designed the animal that we would like our pot to be and then we decorated the bottle using paints and sticky back plastic. We learned about where house plants come from and we each chose a house plant for our plant pot.

We have designed and decorated our own Easter Eggs

Friday 26th March 

Star of the Week: Lucas for working so well and independently whilst designing and making his plant pot.
