Results are not guaranteed!! I’ve chosen a dark blue dye; so white, yellow, pink, orange or any light colour may all work well.
 
In the garden, we will attempt to grow some peas and potatoes. If anyone knows a good way to ward off slugs without slug pellets, please let us know!
 
Finally, if you have any old holiday brochures for our class travel agents, we would be very grateful if you would send them in to school. Thank you.
