Another busy week this week!
On Monday, we had a fantastic trip to Salisbury Museum. We did loads of fun activities including: making Tudor jugs, dressing up in Tudor clothes, playing a Tudor board game and exploring the Salisbury gallery.
On Wednesday, we had our class treat playing board games. A very enjoyable afternoon!
