This afternoon, we had a 'team afternoon' so we all went to spend the time with other people in our team, and with a teacher who is also on our team. In Kestrel classroom, we tried to trick our brains by making a 'twirly bid and bird cage'  Miss Marriott was very impressed with how well everyone worked together.
