We went to Bristol Cathedral to learn about Cadlemas through lots of fun activities: painting, poetry, puppets and (my personal favourite) the light dome! The children were so well behaved, they represented the school fantastically.

We had a fantastic time learning about states of matter at St Bede's. Can you explain to an adult at home what each picture shows?

3. What did they battle for?
4. Who won?
Here are some useful links:
