  • Saturday 19 June 2021 31 Pairs of Socks and Counting It seemed to be a case of 30 children and counting when Year 5 socks were put out to dry on the radiator.  They did so well at swimming today and might as well have swum back to school through the rain! We thought we would put the heating on to dry them out and had a request from their sodden feet to dry their socks too!  We all need the rain but preferably not on a Friday.  Well done Year 5!

There is a lovely range of plants growing in the area that are attracting all different types of species and the wild flowers look really stunning. We were quite surprised at the success of our seed sowing! Quite a few groups have already used the area for pond dipping and other habitat exploration. We are luck to have such a beautiful area to work in.
