Please help us to make our bug hotel!

The nursery children are currently learning about minibeasts as part of their topic ‘How does your garden grow?’.

Next week we are planning to build a bug hotel in our forest area. We already have a pallet to use but we would love to receive donations of loose bricks, large rocks and pieces of wood/logs in order for us to build something similar to the image below.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs Jones.

Grandmother’ lunch

It was lovely to see so many grandmothers, nans, and nannies who joined us for our special Mother’s Day lunch. It was a joy to see the children’s faces light up as they welcomed their loved ones into our school. The atmosphere was filled with love and
laughter, and it truly was a heart-warming occasion.
