“Foundation have had their first visit to the Library this week. We listened to the story ‘A squash and a squeeze by Julia Donaldson’. We helped by joining in the repeated refrains and putting the animals into the house. We then designed our own house and chose a book to bring back to school.
We had a wonderful time!”
