Activity Week 2014 horse

We have had a superb activity week

The weather has been mixed but it hasn’t stopped us getting outside – to Cockington Country Park and to Goodrington beach.

Children have developed their art skills during the week – sketching, painting, making collages, constructing 3D sculptures and learning about a range of artists.
