In art we have been exploring the technique of printing.

We have been recording the weather daily and comparing Norwich to New Delhi. (Spoiler alert: It was super hot!)

We used our maths skills to measure ingredients to make naan bread. Some children asked for the recipe to be shared so here it is:
