In preparation for Art Week, we began looking at Mark Hearld’s collage, St Paul’s Pigeons. We went on a walk down Rathfern Road and observed the pigeons we found on our way. We made tallies, drew pictures and talked about what we saw.

After reading Jasper’s Beanstalk, we began planting broad beans. We hope to eventually re-plant them in our ‘edible garden’, alongside our brand new raspberry and strawberry plants.
