Yr.6 painted Joey and Topthorn today onto canvases. Everyone concentrated really hard on getting the characteristics right for their horse using knowledge from the story. We’re sure you will agree their finished pieces look stunning and certainly brighten up the classroom.
Yr.6 have been developing their skills in rounders this term. As the playground doesn’t offer the best space for this game we headed to Radnor Park for today’s PE lesson.
