They are counting down the days until Christmas with this Christmas stories advent calendar. Each day during December there is a new book to open and read.

  • Vet visit to The Ark, Year 1 & 2

    On Tuesday 4th April The Ark, Year 1 and Year 2 were visited by Thameswood Vets. Lovely Luna the dog joined them. The children learned how to care for a dog.

It was a fantastic morning and the children learned a lot.
