Follow the instructions below to get the app and make sure you select Lees Primary School. 
Thank you for all your support.

It looks like a good crop here at Lees! After School Club prepared the potatoes back in March by chitting them, then buried them and have now harvested a fantastic hoard! The children are amazed and will be enjoying roasties tonight after school. 
Chitting simply means encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting.

Making the most of the September sunshine!

Roles throughout school have been given to the Year 6 children. They have taken on the responsibility and we are confident they will do a fantastic job!
