World Book Day 2019

Thank You Experian!

On Thursday 28th February 2019 a group of volunteers swapped a day in the offices of Experian to work on our outside learning environment. After 2 weeks of beautiful winter sunshine the weather turned more like a February day with plenty of rain. This did not stop the enthusiasm of the group and they managed to relocate the chicken coop and the poly tunnel.

The space where the chickens were will now be the school vegetable garden where all classes will have their own plot to garden, vegetables, plants or herbs.

Thank you very much Experian for all your support
