Meet Miss Ross and Archie's friend Neville...

Neville is a keen fisherman and Fashionista with a dry sense of humour. He lives in modest accommodation (a Toadstool) and his favourite thing to eat is fish, of course!

 

 

 

Zac and Harry's Gnew Gnome Pokemon Trainer

Meet Louis and his family's gnaughty little gnomes.

As you can see some are in disguise - there is King Gnome, who isn't in disguise, he is the gate keeper of Gnomelantis (a magical castle covered in foliage to keep it hidden but of course we all know gnomes can't resist a little bling) there are two gnomes with purple skies. These have been made by Louis, the skis allow them to either waddle or whizz along depending on the terrain. One has extra eyes on stalks which make it an excellent lookout gnome, the other has one small eye which allows it to hide and carefully focus on approaching baddies. 

 

Jonah's (age 4) gnomes are the one with blue skis - again excellent for water, snow and sand - it has a shiny gem eye and other than that is neutral so that it blends in perfectly with Gnomelantis. And last but not least there is superhero gnome. It has a superhero mask that comes down and lifts up, depending on the task at hand. It has superlong arms with pom pom blaster hands, and amazing brown fluffy shoes that help it jump so so high it can clear mountains. 

 

The gnomes have been getting up to all sorts of mischief when the children haven't been looking - stealing toys, picking the flowers, making campfires etc and we hope you enjoy the pictures! 

Here are Sam and JJ's Mr and Mrs Gnome and their pet Croc:

Gnometopia Village Event 

If you would like to take part in our Gnometopia Village event, please place your Gnew Gnome in a front window of your house Tuesday 2nd June and inform the school office that you have done so. The official Gnometopia photographer will then come around the village and capture images of the Gnomes in their windows. It will be lovely for people exercising around the village to spot the Gnomes!
