Last day of term and we had a production line going in order to get it all done in time.  Wednesday afternoons are compacted because of the French lesson so we had to get a wiggle on as a group to make our biscuits, cool them as best we could, sandwich them together wi...

Wanting to do more work in zoology, led to a sustained piece of work looking at the different layers of the oceans and the type of life these sustain.  The research was then portrayed in a beautiful piece of artwork using watercolours to create a poster which brightene...

We braved the wind and our papers flew everywhere.  And what you don't see here is the wonderful chase to catch up with them as they skit scattered, tumbled and flew across the park.  Nor do you get the feel of our delight in finally reeling them all in, a bit trodden...
