Cuddle Me Do

We were very excited this morning when the animals arrived. Several members of staff helped the farmer prepare the pens for animals and were eager to have a quick cuddle. We even had a little Shetland pony who was completely unfazed by all the fuss. Every class had the opportunity to visit the animals and talk to the farmer. Playtimes took place in the front playground to avoid worrying the animals and also because they are very young animals they needed a little nap in the middle of the day. Ahhhhhhhh, so cute!

Investigations Week

Everyone has had a great time during our maths and science investigations week. Monday and Tuesday were particularly good, with parents and carers joining the children for activities in the hall.

Log on to our website to see what everyone has been up to.

Wild Time

Year 1 and Year 2 had great fun at the Arundel Wildfowl Trust. They found out lots of useful information about a variety of wild fowl as well as having the opportunity to see the birds in their natural habitat.
