 RETREAT 5/11-1/12 

These fun videos were made by Cherry one a day during the second Lockdown of 2020, to help keep students entertained, occupied and to perhaps try something that you wouldn't otherwise try, because variety and using the brain in different ways is good to keep it agile and young and laughing is so good for us!
