Life in 50 Years

June 27th, 2022

We were delighted to take part in a wonderful project this term, “Life in 50 Years”. Each of the children wrote and illustrated their ideas about how life might have changed in 50 years time which have been published and given to each family. The future is looking very exciting if our book is anything to go by!!
