Year 3 and 4 Buddies Make Clay Creatures

Year 3 & 4 met in the Cedars for a buddy session. We started with a game of their choice: 40:40. I was impressed to see how the children developed the rule 'you must be touching the tree or someone touching the tree' to enable a huge long line that stretched into the woods!   [...]
