School Garden

May 15th, 2022

The weather has been perfect for gardening and the children have been out and about planting and weeding. We have planted beans, salads and lots of vegetables and are looking forward to a bumper harvest. Thanks to our resident gardening expert Ale for always taking care of our garden and teaching the children so much about growing their own food

Beach Clean

March 28th, 2022

The sun shone brightly on us as we carried out our beach clean up today. The most recent spring tide had washed up a lot of plastic and rope fragments so there was plenty to be done. The children are very aware of how lucky they are to have the beach on their doorstep and of the importance of everyone doing their part to protect it and keep it clean

Engineers Week 2022

March 8th, 2022

As part of Engineers week, we had an amazing morning with Laura from Tech Steps learning all about Lego robotics and coding. The children firstly worked together to build their own Lego robots. They then learnt how to write code which would allow their robots to change colour, make sounds, move at different speeds and much more.

The children in the senior room also enjoyed a zoom session called Sports: Engineering the game of the future, which looked at how engineering is being used to develop materials, products and systems that support athletes to compete at top level and to help sport become more accessible to all.
