The ‘Beast from the East’ visited Crakehall this week. The temperature was 1.5° but the wind chill factor was -6°. Most children were well equipped for the weather but it is always great to wear too many clothes that you can take off rather than not enough and be miserable and cold.
FIRE GROUP: Max and Annabel worked well as a team and produced a warming fire for those feeling cold and to toast our pitta bread.
