The boys then continued the week learning about children in other countries and supporting Mr Shaw with his trip to Nepal.

We ended the term with a fantastic Easter Concert and Easter stall in our class. The boys made Easter cakes and decorated their Easter baskets with sugar / tissue paper. They then filled these with mini chocolate eggs and big chocolate eggs to sell on their stall. They looked fab!

Well done Seadragons - have a great Easter holiday!
