A fantastic day for our final walk. A few mossies in the woods and a tangled horse to save!
Well done to our Sistema orchestra who braved torrential rain to rehearse and perform with children from Lakenham, Norwich Primary Academy and Catton Grove on Satuday. They rehearsed from 10 – 12pm and then the concert was from 1 – 2.30pm. There was fantastic support from our parents. Most of the children had not picked up an instrument before September last year, let alone played in an orchestra! 10 months later and they are confidently performing in front of family, friends and strangers! Well done to everyone involved. Sistema has now finished for this academic year so we look forward to dusting off the instruments in September and welcoming new children from Year 3!
A big thank you to the parents and families who ferried, transported and supported with great joy and enthusiasm.
Thursday 30th June was our first ever Romance Event. Children spent the afternoon with their new teachers and took part in workshops based around the REAL science project themes for September. The aims were simple: to excite the children about science and capture their ideas, thoughts, questions so that these could be used by their teachers when they meet this week to plan the projects. The Year 3 team went down to Nelson to work with the Year 2’s who will be joining us in September. Thanks to staff for their hard work and imagination in planning the sessions and to the children for their engagement and excitement as they explore and discovered.

As part of our WW1 project work, and our determination to make our learning ‘real’, as well as using our outdoor environment, Salak and Livingstone Classes did some real perimeter work on measuring out trenches on the sports field. Both classes enjoyed a great learning experience, and worked collaboratively and co-operatively as if they really were an army battalion.
Year 4 have had a wonderful day exploring all the Ancient Egyptian artifacts at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. A big thank you to all the parent volunteers and staff who came along.
Here is a selection of photographs from the day.
On Monday 6th June 36 children and staff went to UEA Sportspark for the Sports Partnership Athletics competition.
Taking part in running, throwing and jumping events our children took part with great enthusiasm and represented the school amazingly!! Well done all – the results are on their way!!
Thank you to all that took part, the parent helpers and to all the families that came along to support their children and all those taking part.
Below is a small selection of pictures that were taken… more to follow!!
Today year 4 went on another walk to Sycamore Woods and Mile Cross Marsh. The children explored the local area and how it had changed since the last walk. Some of the children had great fun trying to camouflage themselves with giant leaves.
Year 4 have been busy learning about the symbols of angels. The children learnt about the Angel of the North and how angels in Christianity are servants and messengers of God. The children also learnt that angels are used in lots of different religions, an that for Muslims everyone has two guardian angels who record the person’s good and bad deeds.
Year 4 had lots of fun making angel sculptures from clay. They then also wrote messages that they think an angel would say.
Today we had our 3rd day with historian Neil Storey. We all walked to Earlham cemetery to visit the world war 1 memorials and placed poppies on the graves of soldiers. We were really proud of how respectful the children were throughout our time at Earlham Cemetery. The children then came back to school and learnt about life in the trenches, and sharing. The children even got to sample some chocolate that needed to be shared equally between the troops. We also learnt about the local war hospitals.
