Christmas Sleepover for 1st Class

1st class children enjoyed a magical evening snuggled up with their cuddly toys under the twinkling Christmas lights of the classroom. The air was filled with the delicious aroma of hot chocolate, marshmallows and baked treats while Christmas stories and songs were relished by the pyjama clad children. It’s beginning to feel alot like Christmas !!

Third Class Gardeners!

The girls in third class were delighted to finally harvest these wonderful heads of broccoli from the school garden. Having planted these broccoli plants a few months ago, in the raised beds provided by Sarah-Jane’s father, the girls made sure the plants were watered regularly. They were amazed to see the broccoli heads sprouting and growing to such an impressive size. Well done girls!
