  • Balanceability

    The first 16 Ladybird and Bumblebee children have now completed their Balanceability  lessons after school.

  • Supertato to the rescue!

    The Evil Pea spent a whole week in the Foundation Stage causing trouble! Luckily, Supertato and his Super-Veggie friends came to the rescue and finally trapped the Evil Pea! On Monday, there were veggies taped to walls and trapped under shopping baskets. We designed and made traps to capture the Evil Pea as well as writing police reports to the ‘Veggie Police’ to tell them what had happened. Throughout the week we also designed and made Super-Veggies of our own…
