Dinnington Community Primary School



The Outdoor or Gardening Club has been renamed and changed to... FOREST SCHOOL CLUB. 

Activities will also change and emphasis will be on having fun outside and looking after our environment. 



We will also be trying to make our Wildlife Garden interesting, fun and educational for the younger, Foundation Stage children.

We have had lots of birds' nests around the school grounds this year and this one has been particularly interesting and endearing. Photos by Cassey Chell Photography.
