Roves Farm

We had a fantastic trip to Roves Farm on Thursday.  We had such a lucky day: the sun shone down on us, we saw twin lambs being born and we saw some butterflies dancing in the fields.  The children collected eggs from the hens and we learned that eggs are not chickens’ poo! (Last week […]

Thank you so much to parents for supporting this super day at school.  It was wonderful to see all of the children so comfortable and happy in their costumes.  In the morning we imagined what stories would be like if characters from different stories were in them.  We started off by creating a story involving […]

Father Christmas Day 1
