Fingers crossed this will not change, however, if anything does, you will be notified immediately.

Our Seedlings have been busy creating this fantastic display board of Dinosaur crafts.

Our focus book over the last week has been 'Dinosaurs Love Underpants'. The children love this story and have had such fun with the related activities.


The children have been busy creating some wonderful Autumn crafts this term. Look at our display board! Great work Seedlings!


Look at our fantastic new addition to the garden! This climbing frame was gifted to us from a family whose children have both come through Seedlings, and are now at school.

The children love this, and are having lots of fun climbing and creating an obstable course with some other of our garden toys.

We were very lucky to be gifted this fabulous vegetable trug from one of our Leavers & her parents last term!

The children have loved filling the trug and it is now ready for planting! It will be lovely for the Seedlings children to plant the seeds & bulbs, and watch the whole process happen in front of their eyes.
