We also saw many different birds from all over the world but also wild birds that live here for all or part of the year.

  • Yoga with Jamie

    Amber Class have made exceptional progress in yoga. They have been enjoying their daily yoga adventure and have voted to practise yoga before starting their lessons more often. To make their wish come true, please make sure your child has an appropriate kit and that they are in school between 08.40 and 08.50 so they can get dressed.

  • Where does food come from? img_1884

    Amber Class visited Waitrose to find out where some of our food comes from. They looked at different fruits and vegetables and learnt where they are imported from and why they grow there. They learnt how plants grow and how the farmers look after the produce. The children even did some shopping by finding the products on a shopping list. Once they had found all of the items, they learnt how to use the checkout! Waitrose were ready to employ some of the children – they were naturals!
