What says..

Reception class is delightful; play is integrated with learning, with an outside area for growing vegetables, a mud kitchen, a shed ‘garden centre’ and ‘farm shop’. Year 1 was hearing about zebra stripes being unique like a fingerprint, when we visited. One older infant class was learning about oceans, another about fractions (by doling out marshmallows).
