We have been loving French this term so have been listening to our french songs whenever we get a chance! Links for the months and days are here. Also remember you can login to linguascope at home for fun french games.
In art today we started painting sunbursts with watercolour paints. They look very beautiful and should be all finished shortly.
Have great weekends and enjoy the camping if you are going!
