Our first harvest from the Reception garden. All the children got to try our organic radish.

We’re still growing things! Look at our vegetable patch 😊

As part of their growing project Mrs Deverell’s class and Mrs Moore’s class are having a competition. Can you help your child grow their sunflowers so we get an amazing vase full like our Van goghs?!!

What do you think of their fantastic flowers?


For Red Nose Day we came in our night clothes, brushed our teeth and had a nap!! 

Reception visited the farm to help with their learning about animals and life cycles


And here they are, our first Painted Ladies!

Nursery are growing butterflies too! Watch how they have changed from black hairy caterpillars to the chrysalis stage. What colours will they be when they emerge from their cocoons?

And… so they don’t miss wishing Mrs Bowstead a long and happy retirement, 8 chicks hatched overnight in Nursery!

They’re here! First one this morning Thursday 9th March and now there are three!

Check out our chicks!
