Visit from the Police Dogs!

Our Chippenham Little Pips were very lucky to be visited by police dogs from the local police station. This was an amazing opportunity and both children and dogs were very well behaved!

Morris Dancing for May!

Our little pips in Chippenham were very lucky to receive a special visit from some Morris Dancers today! We have been learning about this wonderful time of the year when we welcome the warmer weather and chase away the cold and rain. The dancers played us some music and did some fantastic dancing which the children clapped along to. The children also waved their special Maypole streamers which they made during the day. What a wonderful performance! Thank you to our Morris Dancing friends!
