Eagles trip to Ripon Museum as part of their topic on Crime and Punishment.

Wear yellow for young minds day- today we were wowed by the beautiful singing by the Owls. They helped us to understand how important our mental health is. We played a bingo game to help us think about what we can do to lift our mood.
