Our class - April 2021

Our class - September 2020

28.5.21 As part of a joint project with the National Trust to raise awareness of the importance of sand dunes, all the children got the opportunity to contribute towards painting our school cow. The theme for our cow was wilderness and after looking through initial designs we incorporated forest, Dartmoor and the beach. The cow will be able to be seen at Woolacombe over the Summer - more details to follow when we have them.
