And just for fun! Last year we had a visit from the author Christopher Edge - if you are in Years 4, 5 and 6 you'll remember! (& if you're in Year 3, this is your chance to discover him!) His books are great and we've found them on audible so do give them a listen! (Miss W couldn't put the first one down!) Click the book cover to be taken to Audible where you can listen for free.
