Welcome to the gallery! Please enjoy browsing our photographs...



We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to the charity ‘Scopes4SEN’ who have kindly donated a telescope to our school! They are registered in Tissington, Derbyshire and they work to provide free telescopes and other astronomy tools and materials for schools and hospitals around the UK!

We can’t wait for all of our children to try it out and tell us what they can see...

Today, we have seen “the moon”, “my mom”, “my dad” and “a big fence” - how exciting!

Caterpillars to Butterflies

Look how much they’ve grown! 

We have seen our caterpillars wriggling all around - how exciting! The children have loved seeing them grow over these last few weeks. We can’t believe they used to be so small. The children have loved checking in on them every day to see what they’ve been getting up to!

What an incredible journey - we have seen them transform from tiny caterpillars into beautiful butterflies!

We captured some brilliant photos of us releasing our butterflies! The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes about three to five weeks and the children really enjoyed seeming them develop and change each day 🐛
