Yet again these wiggly invaders are at large!!! Please, if you spot them, then treat them, cut your child’s finger nails short and treat them again in two weeks’ time. If in doubt see: A pharmacist will be able to advise you further and supply you with the medication required to kill these unpleasant visitors.

On Tuesday, Orange class spent the morning at South Cheshire College taking part in a range of early infant agility skills.  Throwing, aiming, jumping and running activities with other local schools.  Their behaviour was exemplary and they all enjoyed themselves!
