Grandparents’ Day We were delighted to have some grandparents from Room 22 visit our class today! We feel very lucky to have hosted them. Firstly, their grandchildren introduced them to the class. Next we sang the ‘Wake Up’ song. Then they answered some of our burning questions… What was school like? Did you ever go on holidays? Are the prayers the same or different?
