We are practising our ball skills this week.
Give your child a medium or large ball to start the lesson. The aim is to prevent the ball from falling to the floor.

They were trapped in their tent and by a blizzard and they all passed away. On 12th November, searchers found them along with Scott’s records and diaries. A memorial service was held by the King at St Paul’s Cathedral. Scott was regarded as a hero for his courage and patriotism.
