Daily Life at JS Old Conna

We place a strong emphasis on children getting outside and connecting with nature. Children play outside in all weathers and are very fortunate to have such a spacious, green school garden with lots of mature trees. Outdoor playtime at JS Old Conna involves making mud pies, digging for treasure, building dens and climbing trees  not to mention all the other imaginative games that involve, dragons, fairies, wizards and wolves and of course lots and lots of running.
