These 9 houses were discovered in 1850 when a heavy storm moved the grass and sand off the dunes and revealed a Stone Age village. The children can tell you all about it!

Fairtrade- In topic we have learnt all about Fairtrade products and how important it is for us to support farmers in other countries by buying their products. They are able to get a fair price for their hard work and they can use that money to support their families by buying clothes, food, houses and to pay for their children's education. We made these posters to persuade people to buy Fairtrade products.
In art, we learnt about Vincent van Gogh and his famous painting (Starry Night). We tried to draw our own Starry Nights using pastels and they came out beautifully.
