Welcome to the new look LEAP.
Katie Morag has popped into LEAP this term to tell us all about what its like to live on the Isle of Struay.
This week we have been learning how to weave. We have also looked at the differences between Island life and life living on the mainland. A Venn diagram was created by the children to show the differences.
LEAP wrote about some of the animals that were native to the islands creating some amazing sentences.
We also made postcards from Struay.
