Easter Activities

Well done to all boys and girls ( and their parents/carers ) who came to school in their magnificent Easter Bonnets for our parade.

 Have a look in Gallery for a list of winners and more pictures. 

We also had a brilliant collection of decorated eggs from children in KS2.  Winners chosen are also pictured in Gallery/Easter Eggs 2015. 


Spring is here!

This week the Nursery have had a hatchery with hens eggs and the children in EY and KS1 have been watching the eggs hatch into chicks and the chicks quickly develop into healthy looking birds.
