    We then returned to class and thought about the other features Royston has.
    We then wrote sentences and drew pictures of what we saw.

    Owl class really enjoyed international day. We did some fantastic Indian dancing, tasted Greek food, did some origami and spoke about a Japanese festival and came up with our own wishes. That afternoon we then enjoyed our class treat, a teddy bears picnic. It was so much fun!

    Robin Class had a fantastic international day. We learnt Indian dancing and we learnt about Japan. We looked at the Japan flag and made an origami whale. We also learnt about the summer festival in Japan and made our own wishes like they do on July 7th in Japan. We also tasted some yummy Greek food!

    Year 1 had a fantastic superhero day.
    We dressed up as fictional and real-life superheroes.

    We painted our own superheroes and learnt some new superhero songs
