Writing through the arts
On Thursday 19th November Year 3 used drama and performance to help write a persuasive letter to Mrs Patient, with ideas of how they could improve the school. The children took it in turns to record their 'response' as if they were Mrs Patient. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activity and watching themselves back 'on the big screen!'.
More pictures are available in our 'Gallery' page.

World Diabetes Day 14th November 2020
