Beans and peas. The beans are already over 13 cm tall.


Our window box filled with flower seeds is sprouting every where too!  It's so exciting.



Daily Physical Activity

Every day it is important that we have some form of daily physical activity (DPA) beyond our fun at recess times. Today our DPA involved in class mini circuts that worked different parts of our body. Take a look.
