Monday 26th March was 'Dotty Day'. It was a non-uniform day and we all wore something dotty or spotty! We raised £161 pounds. Together with the £164 we raised earlier this year, this money will be used to sponsor a class of guide dogs. A guide dog called Keilty visited us with its owner Hazel. We found out lots of information about guide dogs and how important they are. We had fun counting spots on dice during our beetle drive.
We are enjoying a range of learning opportunities during 2017/18.
