  • Frozen Adventure!

    Published 03/11/22

    A mysterious bag appeared in our classrooms this week! We rummaged through the mysterious bag to find lots of winter wear, tinned food and a cuddly penguin. Lots of questions were asked - where has the bag come from? Why is it here? At the bottom of the bag we found a note - "Would you like to come on an expedition to the South Pole......?"
