Our youngest pupils take a trip under the sea

On Monday 10th March our Nursery and Reception children visited the Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth. They all had an amazing day learning about all sorts of different sea creatures.

We had a guide who took us around the centre and told us lots of interesting facts; for instance do you know the difference between a male and female crab? Ask one of the children who will be able to tell you! We were able to touch some of the creatures in the rock pool to discover what they felt like. We walked underneath a tunnel of sharks and saw the funny faces on the flat fish.

The trip was a great success and all the teachers were really proud of the children who were very well-behaved. See more photos from the trip.

Boarders let loose in woods

There’s no point in living in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK if you don’t make the most of the countryside on your very own doorstop. Our boarders enjoy getting out into the fresh air at the weekends, particularly when there’s a chance to play ‘Pooh Sticks‘ and wrap a teacher from head to toe in sticky weeds!Boarders-walk2Boarders-walkBoarders-walk3Boarders-walk5Boarders-walk4
