Primary School

Learning, achieving, working together


We had lots of fun learning about Halloween and carried out lots of spooky activities! We talked about different sized pumpkins and put them in size order, we explored green goo with creepy crawlies hidden in it, made paper plate pumpkins, scooped rice into pumpkin pots and dressed up as witches and wizards.  We particularly enjoyed reading Meg and Mog stories.
