Today we were working with Year 1 and performing our plays. We made the props, directed the actors and narrated each scene using our scripts that we made.

Welcome Year 6 to Willow Class. I hope you all had a lovely half term. This term will will be looking towards Central America and focusing on the Marvellous Mayans.
