“I liked reading ‘The Big Snowball’ my favourite characters were the two dragons because they were little.” (Mhairi)

“I liked doing tiling and completing my stained glass window. We traced over our designs with special pens and put them on the window. They look nice!” (Amrit)

“I liked doing sewing. I’m on to my planning page where I am planning my coaster. I think I am going to try and sew my name.” (Calum)

“I liked doing maths this week. I liked doing 27 – 18 so since you can’t do 7 take away ten. You need to make 17 and do that take away which equals 9. Then you have 1 ten. 1 take away 1 is zero so my answer would be 9.” (Ethan)
