Easter Egg Hunt

Today we had a lovely time in the sunshine hiding and looking for Easter eggs! We hid them all around the garden and, so that we did not forget where we had put them, we took photographs of the hiding places using the ipads. We are really good at finding and using the...

A Special Visitor

On Tuesday we had a surprise visitor who came to see us. It was a policeman! We were so excited and we had lots of questions to ask him about what he does and how he helps people in different ways. He brought his police car and we were allowed to have a look inside...
