Class 1 Explore Ilfracombe

Class 1 had a wonderful day in Ilfracombe on Wednesday 27th April, 2016. We were so lucky with the weather, as even though it was a bit chilly, the sun shone for us.

Wake Up and Shake Up!

Hope you enjoy seeing what we got up to this morning! Thanks very much to Mrs Poynter and the pupils of West Down Primary who showed us their lively morning routine! So... a couple of times a week then?!  ...even better when the sun's out!
