50 things to do!

50 things to do before you leave primary school – we think it is important that children enjoy a wide range of experiences and challenges.  Our 50 things list is not exclusive but sets out the things that we think are important to us and our community.  It includes experiences which our pupils may not otherwise get the chance to try. For example, splashing in puddles, seeing the sunrise/set or playing conkers.
