Love is in the air!

Next week is Valentines Day, arguably one of the most popular days of the year for school going children. It is a day where Love is about the place and there is a palpable excitement. It is also a day teachers struggle to get children to settle down and work on! So why not buy into the excitement and harness that enthusiasm into a worthwhile creative project.
