World Book Day
On World Book day we watched a special author masterclass presented by Matt Haig. He is the author of a book called ‘Evie and the Animals’
In this book Evie discovers that she can hear what animals are really saying. Matt Haig talks about how we are in a very important time for the planet and the environment, so it is important to have a great deal of empathy for the animals that we share the Earth with.
Afterwards we tried to imagine what various animals may say to their owners or other humans if they had the chance.
When Swimming was cancelled due to the Swimming Gala, we had great fun doing circuits in P.E.!
