  2. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your comment.
    We have set this blog up to share the activities we will be doing this term. So far BBC animals is the only one we have done. We used it as our planning week activity.
    You are right, the students were absolutely fantastic. Puppet Pals is currently our favourite app.
