Grandparents Visit Pupils in P2 

Some of our wonderful grandparents popped into school to share stories, memories, old photographs, show examples of past currency and much more. The P2 pupils learned a lot and really enjoyed themselves. Our grandparents are such a wonderful resource so keep asking them great questions, kids


These P2 boys are using their imagination and creativity to transform this cardboard box into a boat! They planned and discussed their ideas and are working as a team to create their masterpiece!


William told us all about Morocco and his Granda's recent trip there. He brought rock and sand samples, various dirham coins and even a receipt printed in Arabic! It was very interesting and we learned a lot!
