got the whole world in his hands, to show how God can care
for us even in these difficult times.
During the last weeks, Year 3 worked very hard for the Art
project 'people of the world'. We have explored different
cultures, researching for patterns, landscapes and famous
buildings that we could recreate.
Year 1 have been making their own unique ID cards to show
their likes and dislikes. They loved using blue ribbon to
make lanyards so that their ID cards can be worn to make
them look very professional!
