Save the Children Den Day – Reception and Y6

Save the Children Den Day – Reception and Y6

On Friday, St. Matthew’s took part in Save the Children’s annual Den Day. The buddies decided that they would like to work together on this exciting project and so earlier in the week, they got together to plan their exciting dens. They all had great fun making and playing in their secret hide-outs!
