What an extraordinary end to the school year for 2020! We are so glad that we were able to re-open on 1st June and have thoroughly enjoyed the last few weeks of term together. We’ve had to adapt, the children have been so good at that and you should all be very proud of them, […]
Every week we have been asking each group of children what they would like to play with and supplying it for them as requested. They love that we write it down on a special list. This week there were lots of different requests, we started off with making bunting on string made out of paper […]
