8th September 2017

We have enjoyed our first week in Firecrest class. We have been busy exploring our classrooms, the outside meadow space and the atelier. We have experimented with some mark making, dressing up, role-play and baked in the mud kitchen. We have also played in the sand and water. It has been a very busy week.
