Wet Lunches

Sometimes we have to stay inside and play at lunchtime because it's raining and we want to keep dry.  Lots of people in Room 8 don't mind staying inside because there are lots of fun activities that we only have out on wet days.  
Some of the favourite things to do are;

Computer games
Connect Four
Board games
Wooden blocks
Plastic toy animals
