In English, the children are preparing to write their own first-person survival narrative and this week have been considering what life would be like for adventurers who find themselves in perilous situations.

On Friday the children were treated to a visit from the author ‘Frank Cottrell Boyce’ and then they were treated to an amazing chemistry show. The children were entertained, intrigued, and wowed by the two excellent visitors!
