Year 1- Unicorn Theatre

Last week, we went to the Unicorn Theatre again.

We went to see 'Not Now, Bernard!' and it was so much fun.

We had seats right at the front of the theatre and the monster came so close to us but we weren't scared! We even had a picnic lunch by the river and the fountains.
