This week, Turtles have been getting ready for Christmas. We’ve had an R.E day, learning about ‘holy’ and Jesus’s mother Mary. On Wednesday Turtles went down to Medina Cottage to have their Christmas dinner and to see the special visitor and finished the week off in the Newport Minster Church for our Christingle service. What a […]
This term, Turtle class have loved their music session’s with music therapist Alison. Turtle’s have been playing the guitar and keyboard and making lots of noise on the symbol and the drum!
