Corona the Caterpillar

Have you painted a stone to add to our growing caterpillar along the school fence? If you haven't done so already, Half Term could be the perfect time to paint a stone and add it to our creepy crawly friend! Remember to take a picture of your stone and add it to Seesaw for your Class Teacher to see.
