Children across the entire school have been developing their own dance sequences based around their topic stories. We have been learning about the different elements of dance - travel patterns, energy, levels and shapes, and what they have come up with so far has been wonderful! We aim to present these at our end of term topic exhibitions.

We adore our school lunches here at Wandsworth, and we thought we would share some of our favourite recipes with you so that you can enjoy these delicious meals, straight from our School kitchen.
