Teddy Bears’ Picnic

P2 and their P7 buddies (and staff!) had a lovely time in the hall celebrating the end of their topic by having a picnic with their favourite soft toy in the hall. Children had enjoyed planning and preparing for this special occasion using their numeracy, writing and listening & talking skills.
