When they arrived they followed a series of clues to find […]

The children sat quietly and listened attentively to the pieces of music carefully selected from […]

Centaurs visited the Tutankhamun exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery. The children were able to see first-hand, treasures that were found in the tomb when The Young Pharaoh was buried.  These ancient artefacts were amazing to see and the children enjoyed this experience immensely.  

On Tuesday, Elves spent the morning exploring some amazing African creatures when Zoolab visited. The children listened to some interesting facts told by the very knowledgeable Tyler and they were able to touch and even hold most of the creatures. They were extremely brave and excited about meeting these creatures. Well done Elves!​
